One of the ways Nokia has managed to convince customers to come aboard their ship instead of the competition is by offering Lumia exclusives which aren’t available on other Windows Phone devices, and this is made possible thanks to the close relationship Nokia and Microsoft have. Well if you’re a Lumia owner and you love checking into places, you might want to check out the new official Foursquare app for Windows Phone which will come with an exclusive Augmented Reality feature that is only available on Lumia handsets.
Basically what this augmented reality feature does is that it allows users to search for potential venues simply by switching to the augmented reality mode and from there, the camera viewfinder will be able to show users the various locations that they can visit by overlaying Foursquare venues on top of the camera viewfinder. We guess it does sound like a pretty novel feature, but we guess for those who love technology and trying new things, this app might just do the trick. In any case the official Foursquare app can be downloaded via the Windows Phone Store, so head on over if you’d like to check it out.
