• It's Like Looking Through Bakery Windows - Windows Phone, That Is...!

    Drumroll please.... And now a warm welcome for the next app to be joining our mobile family: Windows® Phone! Starting today, you can find the Foodspotting app in the Windows Phone App Marketplace.

    Thanks to Microsoft's support and developer advocate program, we were able to launch this app in record time! Microsoft was instrumental - providing guidance and design recommendation to ensure that the Foodspotting Windows Phone app is easy to use and delivers great performance.

    As many of you know, we have a lofty goal to cover the world with amazing food recommendations and this expansion will help us arm even more foodspotters with the ability to find and share dish recommendations wherever they are. We've heard a great number of requests from our community for a Windows Phone app and now here it is!

    We're working on a family of apps that all share similar simple design and functionality that's signature to Foodspotting. And we're particularly proud of our Windows Phone app, which takes full advantage of the beautiful Windows Metro design to represent the core Foodspotting features of easy spotting, location-based search and browsing.

    Existing Foodspotting users might notice some slight changes - more straightforward language within the actions, a simplified feedback mechanisms and streamlined interface. We're excited to say we'll be rolling all these characteristics into our other apps in the coming months.

    In future versions of our Windows Phone app, you'll be able to browse your "Wants" list, see when others want or compliment your recommendations, as well as follow friends and experts like the Travel Channel and Top Chef.

    Windows Phone Foodspotters, we hope you'll enjoy this app - search for it in the Windows Phone App Marketplace or if you have the Zune software, download it here. Do share your feedback and thoughts with us and report any bugs you find!

      Something fishy (food language) going on. My comment just disappeared on refresh.
