Jeff Wilcox, senior developer at Microsoft and developer of the 4th & Mayor Windows Phone app, has published some statistical data on his blog covering the app's usage in the past year. Wilcox publicly released 4th & Mayor one year ago today, and the app quickly become an extremely popular choice with consumers.
The Foursquare client, which currently sits at version 3.2 / 3.3, boasts some bold statistics:
- Used by over 60,000 people, most every single day.
- Over 35,000 people have push notifications enabled.
- Of users who’ve opted into sharing usage information, the app has been used to check-in over 7,650,000 times.
- The app's been run over 8,000,000 times.
It's interesting to note that 4th & Mayor has been run over 8 million times in 365 days. That's almost 22,000 times a day. While one would expect a high level of use due to the nature and functionality of the app, it's still a positive sign for Windows Phone itself.
As for 4th & Mayor, Wilcox is set to release version 3.4 soon which will "add a lot more features for international users, including more map choices such as OpenStreetMap and Google Maps, plus business hours support".
Should you not have 4th & Mayor installed on your Windows Phone, you can download it from the Marketplace for free.
