Foursquare has just re-released its app for Windows Phone complete with an all-new design. The original app for Windows Phone came out early on in the platform's life, but it was pulled from the Marketplace some time ago because it was lacking in features and a third-party app called 4th and Mayor provided a better experience.
The new Foursquare app for Windows Phone, which is labeled version 2.0, offers a host of new features to take advantage of the new services now offered through Foursquare. The design has also been reworked to better fit Microsoft's Metro design that is used in Windows Phone. Cool features, like super-fast check-in via tap and hold, and a live tile have been added. Users can now view a map of nearby specials or where their friends are checked-in.
The Foursquare for Windows Phone app version 2.0 is free and should be available in the Windows Phone Marketplace now, though it may take some time to propagate to all the carriers and users. [via Foursquare]
