FourSquare replaces their official app with 4th & Mayor

It doesn’t happen very often when a company admits their own product is inferior to a 3rd party offering, but it seems that is just what  FourSquare did.

Instead of the website sending you to their official Windows phone 7 app, the link now sends you to Microsoft employee Jeff Wilcox’s excellent 4th and Mayor app, which has 4 1/2 stars in the Marketplace, compared to the 2 stars of the official app.

We do not know if this is a permanent arrangement, but FourSquare could clearly do a lot worse.
