WP7 Connect App of the Week: 4th & Mayor (Foursquare)July 15, 2011 No Comments
With the huge overhaul that came to every one’s favorite Foursquare client -Â 4thÂ &Mayor is the WP7 Connect App of the week. The new layout and design look clean and very Metro UI. It’s alot faster and even though the official Foursquare app came back to the WP7 marketplace with a new look as well, I still prefer 4thÂ & Mayor for my checking in needs.
