The new apps just keep rolling in. Earlier today we wrote about some new apps for Windows Phone 8, and now it’s Windows 8’s turn. Two popular services are finally getting native Windows 8 apps. OpenTable and Fourquare announced official apps during BUILD. Let’s take a look at what they offer.
OpenTable is a popular service for making reservations at over 20,000 restaurants across the country. The service makes it easy to see what times and how many seats are available. Gone are the days when you call in and hope the time you want is open. The Windows 8 app has the ability to see available restaurants in real-time, search by city, food, and price, browse menus, and of course make reservations. It’s available for free right now.
Foursquare went up on stage at BUILD to officially show off their Windows 8 app. In the last few weeks Foursquare has taken an interest in tablets, so it’s only natural they would come to Windows 8. The app appears focused on discovery, but of course you can do everything else like check-in, follow friends, and earn badges. Foursquare did not give a release date for when to expect the app. We will keep you posted.
