Official Foursquare app gets more languages, push notifications

Foursquare

We haven't seen the official Foursquare app get an update in quite some time. In fact, we've heard some isolated reports that the leaderboard tile stopped updating for some. So it's nice to see the official team update their app (and play catch-up to 4th & Mayor).

Version 2.9 is now live in the Marketplace and features the following changes:

  • Portugese, Korean, Indonesian, Japanese and Russian language support
  • Push notifications to get instant friend check-in updates on pinned tile
  • Leaderboard pinned tile backside to see where you stand compared to your friends

The extra language support is great, especially as Windows Phone expands globally to those new markets. The push notifications we've seen before in 4th & Mayor and quite fun to keep track of your friends's updates. Finally, hopefully this update will fix that stuck leaderboard for some of you. You can pick up the updated Foursquare app here for free in the Marketplace. Thanks, Rob and Aaron, for the tip!

+2 You're right, the official Foursquare app is so sloooow and laggy. 4th & mayor looks better, it has more features and fully supports Mango :)

Ugh, I like the easiness and functionality of foursquare, but the look and feel of 4th and Mayor. If only they could combine.....

Just the opposite for me. Foursquare is super fast. 4th always takes forever when I hit check in. If I'm checking into a bridge or passing a landmark it takes so long I sometimes get the " your phone thinks your somewhere else ". Also I have major GPS issues. Half the time I have to power my phone off and on to get my right location.

I've had that problem too with 4th thinking I was several miles away from where I was. I checked onto a restaurant today and it thought I was 3 miles away from where I actually was. I never had that problem with the foursquare app. I'll have to try power-cycling and see if that helps. HTC Trophy.

I like the foursquare app. 4th and mayor is cool but not appealing. when the functionality of foursquare gets better I won't use 4th. I know I know I'm going against the grain.

I prefer 4th & Mayor over foursquare due to its simplicity and how everything works as it should compared to foursquare the leaderboard froze after a week. Like others have said, the GPS on 4th & Mayor lacks compared to foursquare. I could be standing right in front of a restaurant and it won't show up at the top of the list because it thinks I'm 5 miles from the area. Weird.

it isn't even push notifications when the tile only flips to see who recently checked in, doesn't have toast notifications. 4th and mayor still far more better coz its got qr check in and push notifs via toast.
