Foursqaure today released a all new app for Windows 8/RT devices in Windows Store. This is not a version which was ported from iOS or Android, instead Foursquare worked with Microsoft to create a stunning new visual experience to explore the local places. The new app is focused more on helping users find restaurants, bars, pubs, etc.
The usual Foursquare’s activity feed is not available through this app. Foursqaure says it was designed that way, “This was a very conscious product decision–we wanted to put the attention on finding great places,”.
