New Foursquare app for Windows Phone 8 announced, now live in the Store
One day after Windows Phone 8 users received the new Hulu Plus app, they’re being treated again to another major app: Foursquare. While Windows Phone has had an official Foursquare app for some time on the platform, the new version is a complete overhaul.
Co-developed with Microsoft and Nokia, the new app is a completely new UI, is much faster to use and is simply gorgeous.
From a blog post by Foursquare just posted:
Indeed the app is quite a joy to use. And good news for Windows Phone 7 users, as an update overhauling that version is expected in the coming weeks as well.
Pick up the new Foursquare app for Windows Phone 8 here in the Store. All Windows Phone 8 devices, though it has feature optimizations for Nokia Lumia phones.
It’s version 3.0 and being so new, it may take a few hours before it propagates through the marketplace to your region (we got it on our end, so we know it’s live).

You cannot say that foursquare couldn't care lass. What you people seem to forget is that the SDK came out veyr late. It takes about 6-8 months to get a proper app working. Surely foursquare did not start working on this app last month. It has been under the works for some while.
This is why we are seeing an influx of apps around this time. (6-8 months after the sdk was released)
Keeps 4th & Mayor. Uses Foursquare official only as a back up app.
Ya está disponible en la tienda. Acabo de instalarla.
We use to have two official Foursquare Apps in the Windows Store, one publish from Foursquare themselves and one published from Nokia. When they announced the exclusive Foursquare features for the Lumia devices back in January, along with the new App, I was more than sure that we will still have two separate Apps, one again publish by Nokia for Nokia devices.
It looks like this is not the case and we will now have only one App in the Store, publish by Foursquare only and will "unlock" extra capabilities when it gets install on a Nokia Lumia smartphones. At least this is what the situation currently looks like. Can we get a confirmation?
other than that well i love the new UI and i am still gonna explore this one. 4th and Mayor still stays however. until i get comfortable with the new foursquare
I actually just removed 4th an Mayor
APP is beautiful though
Nvm. found it. hidden under "submit a request" -_-
Other than that I absolutely love the look and feel of the app. My most-anticipated since they first leaked those initial videos.
I'm not receiving any :S
