Drink up! Untappd social app coming soon to Windows Phone 8
Untappd, the social network for those who like to spend their free time relaxing in their local with a well-poured pint, have recently announced that they are working on bringing an app to the Windows Phone 8 Store. What’s more they are anticipating having it released before the end of March, as revealed in a blog post picked up by our sister site CrackBerry.
Featuring the ability to discover popular establishments as you travel, as well as which beers come with the highest recommendation, Untappd brings together ideas from other popular networks (Foursquare, Twitter) such as badges and a stream showing what your friends are drinking.
In fact Untappd’s geo-location and social aspects are where I always thought I’d take my first Windows Phone 7 app, ‘RateYourBeer’ before I became involved in an app which has gained so much popularity it takes most of my free time!
Personally I look forward to adding Untappd to the list of apps which started on other platforms and are now seeing Windows Phone as a viable platform to add to their portfolio. Whilst it’s not yet clear if we will be seeing a fully native app, or one built on top of PhoneGap, you can be sure we’ll bring you a review as soon as it’s ready.
