Foursquare has launched its first ever desktop app, kicking off with Windows 8 today. This is two months after Microsoft revealed a version for its latest operating system would be made available.

Foursquare launched four years ago, and is today available on Android, iOS, BlackBerry, BlackBerry 10 and Windows Phone 8.

With Windows 8 now in the mix, this is a notable move by the location-based social network given that it’s now not only available for tablets such as the Surface, but also any Windows 8 machine.

You can download the app on the link below, and stay tuned for our hands-on with the app which will be coming up shortly.
