Just a couple of days ago, we did bring you word that Foursquare now allows your friends to check you in, which makes the app all the more social. Well, at the second day of the Microsoft BUILD conference, Microsoft has not quite run out of tricks and rabbits to pull from their magic hat, having announced that Foursquare is currently working on its first native tablet app, and it will be released for tablets that run on Windows 8 as well as Windows RT tablets.

So far, Foursquare already has 35 million subscribers, and as you can see in the video above, the interface as well as design of the new app is certainly pleasing to the eye. While it is not quite yet to see action over at the Windows Phone Store, it does seem as though it is very, very close to being completed. Dennis Crowley, Co-founder and CEO, Foursquare, said, “People want to experience and explore the world around them, and the Foursquare for Windows 8 app helps them do that. It makes it fun to search for a place for dinner or to go out, and helps people discover new experiences. We’ve worked with Microsoft on a bunch of initiatives over the years, and this product is another example of the great things we can do together.”
