'4th & Mayor' Foursquare app coming to Windows Phone 7 soon

We mentioned developer Jeff Wilcox the other day making his own Foursquare app...one to not only "fix" the broken one we have now but to go beyond. Jeff is on the verge of launching the app with it in final testing stages and launching a new site to promote it. And it's name? As you can guess, it's '4th & Mayor'.

We're actually in a good position to judge how good it is since we've been running it for the last 24hrs and our verdict: pure winning.  The app is gorgeous, smart, fluid and very fast. The options here go further than the current Foursquare app and it has a better, more minimalist look to it--very Windows Phone 7. We'll have more on it later, maybe even a video hands-on.

In the meantime, check out his site and the images there and get ready for some mega-checkins.

  • Living in a rural area, Foursquare is more of a curiosity than anything else. I really wish I had a use for this because this guy obviousely understands the principles behind Metro.
  • I can't wait for this. The "official" app is horrible. Foursquare doesn't care about Windows Phone. They keep adding features to the iPhone and Android apps and leave wp7 on version 1.
  • The XAP is available on their website ;)
  • OK, so do any of you with developer unlocked phone who are already using 4th & Mayor, are you able to log-in to Foursquare?As of now the official Foursquare App, Laicos, and Bubblegum on WP7 are not able to log-in.
