Busy week for app updates right? Today the official Foursquare app for Windows Phone was updated. No, we didn't lose the ability to check-in just yet. That probably won't happen until we finally get their new app called Swarm. Let's check out today's update for Foursquare.
The last update Foursquare had on Windows Phone was back in late March. That update changed a few things around. For example, the trending tab was replaced with the saved tab. Head into the Windows Phone Store today and you'll see the app now at version 188.8.131.52. Here's what we get today:
- Bug fix where unread notifications are not cleared
- Added Lens support
- Other general bug fixes
Hallelujah. We've experienced the bug with our read notifications for far too long. The bug showed that you always had an unread notification, making you think you were really popular. Turns out the notification count wouldn't clear even if you read them, today's update fixes that.
We've also got Lens support for those on Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 8.1. You can launch the Foursquare app by using the Lens picker with the default camera app onboard Windows Phone.
Update and let us know what you think of the app. Or do you just want them to give us Swarm already?
Thanks for the tip Akram!
