Native BrightKite App Enters Private Beta

BrightKite announced on their blog yesterday that the native version of the popular social network has entered private beta testing. The posting didn’t offer many clues as to what features would be included in the finished version, although it did note that the app is not yet feature complete. The beta program quickly closed as Apple only allows each developer 100 ad hoc authorizations. Those who made it into the program are required to send information on bugs and possible ways in which to improve the app before its submission to the App Store.

No date has been given for the app’s release, nor has a price. Considering BrightKite’s prediction of the app’s initial launch at the end of July fell through, we may not hear anything until its happily sitting on App Store shelves.
