Yesterday we blogged that 4th&Mayor foursquare app replaced the official foursquare application from Microsoft. Liz Ngo from Microsoft have responded to this action via his blog. Here it is,
I am here to give a special shout out to our friends from both the foursquare and Windows Phone communities.Â Over the last year, we have discovered and learned from many of you that Windows Phone 7 is a great leap for Microsoft.Â In the spirit of this, foursquare will soon unveil a new foursquare mobile app that will take advantage of some of the unique capabilities, features, and experience for Windows Phone 7.
Until then, we encourage you to explore a great foursquare application, built by a 3rd party developer, called 4th and Mayor. It includes rich functionality like photos, comments, new leaderboards, the Explore feature! Download it today by visitingÂ https://foursquare.com/apps/ and clicking on the Windows Phone logo in the upper right corner of the page.
Keep up the enthusiasm, keep up the dedication, and we will continue to keep you posted as we continue to develop the new official foursquare mobile app for Windows Phone 7.
So, 4th & Mayor is just a temporary replacement for Official Foursquare application and we expect a fully loaded Official foursqaure application soon in the marketplace.
