4th & Mayor gets updated with support for HD displays and more

4th & Mayor

The super popular 4th & Mayor app for Windows Phone is one of the better (albeit unofficial) Foursquare apps out there. The app was released back on Windows Phone 7 and still the developer is releasing updates with more support and functionality implemented. Today's release adds yet more Windows Phone 8 support, as well as some other bits and pieces.

Here's what is new in version 3.14:

  • Save contact feature added to friend profiles on the social page
  • Official Windows Phone 8 support with high resolution app icons
  • Support for 16:9 phones (including the Lumia 1520, etc.)
  • Bug fixes in explore and badge experiences

Haven't yet tried the app? You can download 4th & Mayor from the Windows Phone Store for free. Thanks, Leoberto, for the heads up!

The long-term new features and investments will be much easier to do with the release of Windows Phone 8.1. I think I finally realized I needed to keep the older 8.0 version up-to-date and appologize for the long time between updates! Thanks for your support.

Hmm I've got version 3.14. I think you just said there's a 3.15 version coming to fix this. Again if you go under your profile and click check-ins your last 20 check-ins show up (well use to). I check-in about 28 times a day so I use this feature alot. Since today's update killed it I'm having to use the horrible official app to view my recent check-ins. Regardless you have a awesome app. I hope it gets fixed soon.

app update articles are quite rampant here these days... we are badly waiting for the article, " WP8.1 Dev preview is finally out!" article from dan...

This trick works well for some people to get the updates early:

  • Go to the Windows Phone Store
  • Search for the app ("mayor")
  • Touch the app and bring up its page. It typically does not have the Update button shown yet.
  • Hit the back button to go back to the search results.
  • Tap the app name again. Sometimes it will refresh and then show an Update button here.

I'm actualy waiting for headlines like "WhatsApp/Foursquare/Facebook finaly equalizing their apps with other platforms and promise to update at the same time from now on" or even "Snapchat/CandyCrush/Cash of Clans/Tinder makes its way to windows phone". But i've been waiting that for too long now.

After all this time, I thought the next update would be version 4. Well, let's see if the new business addition works.

No issues have been fixed there recently, sorry. Could you send e-mail to the support/feedback alias with information on the issue so I can help try and fix in a future update? Thanks!

"The super popular 4th & Mayor app for Windows Phone is one of the better (albeit unofficial) Foursquare apps out there"

what others are there?

I love this app. It's faster and better than any of the official versions. I would love to have the events feature and the ability to tag friends. Hopefully in a future update?
