Now add to that, that the look and feel utilizes Metro to its fullest and devs all seem to be in agreement that this is what the look of Windows Phone is all about. Just check it out in action:

  1. Actually, the official foursquare doesn’t even work.

    I love how well 4th & Mayor interface fits in with the rest of the phone.

  2. Thank the FSM! My Foursquare app hasn’t worked in forever, so I was using the website as a work-around. Then the message “Hey, you get badges but not mayorships” from the mobile website and I was all kinds of annoyed. Fetching this tout suite!
