If you have been waiting for a saviour to your check in needs, wait no more as ThinkChange has produced a proper Foursquare app for Symbian devices so you can check in at all the locations you go to anytime anywhere with just a few taps.

As you can see in the screenshots above, it has a login screen, a “me’ screen which shows your your friends checkins, your previous checkins, badges and mayorships, map view, places view and friends view.

Check out the video below on how it works on an N97.

Devices Supported:
Nokia: 5230, 5233, 5235, 5530, 5800, C6, N97, N97 Mini, X6

One of the growing location based social network service, Foursquare, has been implemented in a Symbian app to allow users to check-in on their locations and share them with friends.

As some of you may know, Foursquare is currently not natively supported on Symbian platform yet, but thanks to Waze, we can now easily report out locations with just a few taps!

All you need to do is download Waze onto your Symbian device (touch/non touch)

Once the GPS signal is locked, click on the “Report” button and scroll down to reveal the Foursquare option.

First time users will be asked to login.

Once logged in, a list of nearby locations will be displayed. Just tap on any of them and you are done!

This is the confirmation screen once u have checked in.

Note: GPS locking is quite slow (was trying this with the Nokia 5800), no options to view badges or friends’ locations… but hey you get to check in without the need to go to m.foursquare.com on your browser! aha

Point your phone browser to http://m.waze.com/ now to download WAZE.

This guide can be applied to all S60 devices (N96, N78, N82, 5800, etc)

I was happily saving locations on Google Maps one day and then I thought “hmm how do I transfer these landmarks that I have saved as favourites to my friends?”

I then found out that it is actually possible.

As usual, we can save any locations on the map as favourite by tapping and holding the spot on the map > Save as favourite.

Once saved, the details of the location will appear in the favourites list.

Unfortunately, you cannot send the ‘favourite’ locations out as there is no options for that in Google Maps, but you can do it in ‘Location’, a feature that comes with most new Nseries and 5800.

In Location, select landmarks. Then all the locations that you have saved as favourites in Google Maps will appear here.

Select a landmark, click on options, and you can choose to send it out via message(MMS) or bluetooth.

So there you go. Saving and transferring Google Map landmarks
