Has Foursquare for Symbian stopped working properly?
« on: January 31, 2014, 12:45:03 PM »

Since this morning (my timezone is Eastern European Time Zone (UTC+02:00)), all Foursquare checkins using 4sq version 2.0.985 return as "empty", with the "Aw shucks! No points for this check-in".

Closing and re-opening the application does not change anything, nor does shutting the power off an on (rebooting) on my Nokia 808 help.

Has anyone else noticed this (if you use Foursquare) and do you have any suggestions for what I should do if I would like to continue using this app?

Sound like another social network changes its API again.There is nothing you can do about it.All you can do is inform the developers about the issue so the developers can update the app.

Alright. If that is the case, I assume using Foursquare for the Symbian platform effectively ended there.
As it is one of the most popular location-based social networking websites for mobile devices, with focus on Android and iPhone, I doubt they will make any upgrade for the Symbian platform.

You should try contact the developer first and inform them the problem.It is not hard to update new version with latest API.Just probably there won't be any new feature.

I sent a message to Foursquare support. The reply was:

"Currently we are no longer supporting Foursquare on Symbian devices. Our apologies for any inconvenience here."

"Currently" (=at the moment) vs. "no longer" (=is not possible anymore). Strange word combination.

Put this into another situation:

...

A patient wakes up after an operation. An operation that required anesthesia, but it was not an operation that should have caused any noticeable change in the torso itself.

- Doctor! Doctor! Where is my right arm? I can't feel it! "Yes", the doctor says. "We have sawed your right arm off. Currently you are no longer able to use it. Our apologies for any inconvenience here."
- What? Currently? You, you... you are going to put it back in place later on?

Maybe the person who replied does not know English very well.

Hi there,
Thanks for reaching out! At this time, we no longer support Symbian and I apologize that I cannot assist further with this matter.
Please let me know if I can clarify anything else and have a great day!
Best,
xxxxxx

For reasons absolutely unknown to me, the app started working..somewhat..all of a sudden some days ago. Somewhat means that not all functions are working properly, but the main function, logging in, does.

I have no idea why it started to work alll of a sudden (though I am glad about it); I do not believe they reversed the API (?) or anything.

It's a mystery, really.

Actually i already emailed them before and they say they no longer suppported.Read also post on top.I guess the reason they still push update is due to large amount of email and bad review in nokia store they got on this issue.I think they didn't expect there still a lot of foursquare symbian users.  ;D  ;D  ;D
