Now ready for Windows Phone 8

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen an update for 4th & Mayor, the fantastic third-party Foursquare app made by one of Microsoft’s own. The app last had an update back in March to version 3.3 but today you can go and nab version 3.9.

Version 3.9 brings a few new additions to the table to round off what is already one of the top apps for Windows Phone:

  • "Like" check-ins
  • New category icons
  • Compatibility fixes for Windows Phone 8

Since the developer (Jeff Wilcox) works for Microsoft it should be of no surprise that he gets access to the coveted Windows Phone 8 SDK. Because of that, he’s gone ahead and made sure the app is in tiptop shape for the new OS when new devices hit store shelves in a few weeks. In addition, you can now “like” check-ins, much like the feature on Facebook and there are some new category icons.

Of course with 4th & Mayor on version 3.9 that can only mean a 4.0 revision is on the horizon, which we assume will take advantage of all the new Windows Phone 8 goodness. But for now, you can grab version 3.9 of 4th & Mayor here in the Windows Phone Store.

And as always, if you feel like buying Jeff a beer for his hard work for this app (it’s free and ad-free), you can always send him a Paypal donation.
