A snazzy new version of the official Foursquare app for Windows Phone 8 just checked in to the Store. Download it now.

Version 3.0 brings a bunch of new features: Pin people and venues to your Start Screen, get notifications on your lock screen, and check-in and share using NFC. In this version, you can also use your voice to search, find, check-in and more. As you use the app, Foursquare fine tunes its recommendations for things to do and try in your vicinity. Check it out and let me know what you think.

  • Anyone know how to see who else is at the venue with the new Foursquare app?  Can't seem to find it and that's a pretty key piece of information!

  • Until I get my Lumia 928 I will have to be content with the Windows Phone 7.5 version

    I like the new app. But one of the biggest changes, for me, was the addition of the "Sign in with Facebook" option on this version. The old version didn't support this, so I created a new account - only to find out that Foursquare doesn't support merging/linking/etc. accounts. now I can continue with my original account... YAY!

  • AWESOME app! I've been waiting for this one forever, but my main concern with it is the lack of event-based check ins; like when you're at a movie or a concert. I'm a little confused as to why they left such a popular feature out, especially when it was added to the recently updated ios and Android versions. Hoping Windows adds it soon!

  • @Cyphe: yes, there's one in the works.

    Will this app also get updated on the Windows Phone 7 platform?
