Last week we saw the release of WinMoSquare, the first functional application on Windows Mobile phones for Foursquare. Over the course of the week, Touchality, the developing company behind the project has released 2 more updates.
We’re going to take a brief look at the application now.
Overall, the application runs fairly smoothly (provided that you have met all the prerequisites). It has yet to crush on me. Personally, I really enjoy the user experience (as I have seemed to overly emphasized in the video). The flow and the audio was definitely compliment to the functionality of the application.
If you are an advert Foursquare user looking to switch to Windows Mobile, this application may be enough to nudge you over the edge.
