Foursquare developers have been working hard in conjunction with developers from Microsoft and Nokia on the newest version of the Foursquare app for Windows Phone 8. This new version of the app has been optimized specially for Nokia Lumia devices, so for the best performance, you'll need one of those handsets.
Currently, the Foursquare app has over 33 million regular users who are checking in on a daily basis. The version has a new look too, and surprisingly, it looks a lot better than the fourth and Mayor, a third-party Foursquare app for Windows Phone 8 that managed to outperform the official app for quite some time.
