Foursquare, fresh from a new look, did make an announcement in the past to ensure its check-in app no longer remains as a singular entity, but rather, will be split into two – Swarm and Foursquare. The former will be more focused on check-ins and the like as it arrived on both Android and iOS platforms just a few weeks after the initial announcement, with Windows Phone owners left hanging on just two words – “soon after.” It seems that the clock has since ticked on pretty fast until now, and there is still no sight of Swarm on Windows Phone. We are glad that Foursquare has not forgotten about Windows Phone users, having introduced a trio of screenshots that depict Swarm for Windows Phone.
It does look from the screenshots seen above that the Windows Phone version of Swarm will share many resemblances to its Android and iOS versions, packing in the same kind of features that will include stickers not to mention “Nearby plans”. Apart from that, it will also boast of navigation buttons that are located at the top of the display.
Unfortunately, it remains to be seen as to when Foursquare will make a public announcement on the release of Swarm on Windows Phone, but they claim to be “putting the finishing touches” where the app is concerned, citing a release window of sometime “in the next few weeks.” [Press Release]
