Foursquare released a new version today of its popular “check-in” app that’s been completely revamped for the Windows Phone 7 platform. The company had previously released an early version for the platform that subsequently got pulled from the Marketplace because of lacking features and poor overall user experience.
In collaboration with Microsoft, the company has rebuilt the app that is now faster and easier to use. This new version 2.0 of the Foursquare app for Windows Phone 7 includes many of the new features that Foursquare introduced recently but delivered over a slick new interface.
The new design also better matches Microsoft’s Metro styling and takes full advantage of the panoramic UI. It also adds a new LiveTile and a feature that lets you view a map of nearby specials or specials near where your friends are checked-in. Foursquare for Windows Phone app version 2.0 is free and available for download now at the Windows Phone Marketplace.
