Hi, I would like to r etrieve Location List near a Coordinates.
Have anyone tried this before?
Is it better to use the BB Geolocation API or Foursquare API?
Any sample codes?
Solved! Go to Solution.

for Foursquare: Kyle Fowler has a sample app with all InvocationFramework parameters at Github
what's better ? dont know. this will also depend from country and for what you're searching
do a manual search from BB Maps to see what will be found and compare with Foursquare
If this would my app - I would let the user choose between Foursquare or BB
