Windows 8 needs apps, and not just any apps either. It needs the big apps that every other platform has. It won't be able to compete with iOS and Android until it does. It still has a ways to go, but it's one step closer today.
Microsoft announced today that Foursquare is now available on Windows 8 tablets and PCs. The app has been built specifically with large screen devices in mind, and provides a custom Windows 8 experience to users.
Here are all the unique Windows 8 features that Foursquare users can expect:
One of the reasons Windows 8 isn't getting as many apps as iOS or Android is that developers have to design an entirely new app for Microsoft's platform. It's usually worth it in the end, however, when you see how pretty the final product is when compared to the same app on competing devices. It doesn't hurt that the Windows 8 app is the first Foursquare app built specifically for tablets either.
You can grab the Foursquare app from the Windows Store now. It's supported on both Windows 8 and Windows RT.[Image: Windows Store]
