At our Build developer conference at the end of June, Foursquare announced they were going to release an app for Windows 8. This marks the first official Foursquare app for large-screen devices, available exclusively on Windows 8. Here is what Dennis Crowley, Co-founder and CEO of Foursquare, said about the app:

 

Today, Foursquare for Windows 8 is now available in the Windows Store.

 

With Foursquare, you and your friends can make the most of where you are and where you’re going by checking in to the places you visit and sharing and saving your favorite places. Over 35 million people worldwide use Foursquare and have checked in over 4 billion check-ins. And there are millions more check-ins each day. With all this data from people checking in, sharing and saving their favorite places, as well as ratings and tips – Foursquare has become an incredible discovery engine for new places with personalized recommendations and deals based on where you, your friends, and people with similar tastes have been.

Login doesn't seem to work at the moment, since I can't log in (yet I can on the website).

do people still use 4Square? Seems like you don't hear about it much at all these days.

Nevermind, I misread, it says Windows 8. But no, I don't think most people use foursquare anymore. At least most people I know don't. Though I'm sure plenty replace those who leave.
