foursquare in Windows Phone 7 vs. Android and iOS
Since the interface of Window Phone 7 is uniquely different from Android and iOS, foursquare had worked closely with Microsoft Windows Phone 7 app developers in order to streamline the interface. If you have had the chance to see the Windows Phone 7 interface, you may have noticed that navigation has a series of tiles that represent the different sections for accessing the application in the device. Instead of displaying the complete content in a single screen, foursquare has opted for a similar approach to display app in a series of tiles. In this design of foursquare app, you have the friend lists in one section along with app settings options in the other section.
