Foursquare brings AR feature to WP8 Lumia handsets

In addition to releasing the latest iteration of its Windows Phone 8 app, Foursquare, together with Microsoft and Nokia, has announced that WP8 Lumia user will also get an added Augmented Reality feature if they update/install the new and improved app on their handset.

The AR feature of the new Foursquare for WP8 is only limited to some Lumia handsets like the 920, 820 and the 720. It works similarly to Nokia Here City Lens where in the app uses the device’s camera in order to display information about the nearby venues around the user.



Apart from providing details such as the distance of a given venue from the user’s current location, the app also displays some info about the place which can aid users to decide which place best suit their need. The app also makes check-ins easier by taking advantage of the handset’s NFC and voice recognition feature.

You can find out more information about the new Foursquare for Windows Phone 8 by heading over to the source link below. But if you want to skip through that part, you can download the app here.

    It works on the 820 too. Kind of odd you skipped it while listing the 720.
