Foursquare, YouTube apps get major updates for Windows Phone 8

Freshly enhanced versions of both Foursquare and YouTube arrived in the Windows Phone Store today, bringing additional Windows Phone 8 features to the two popular apps.

The updated YouTube app lets you pin channels, playlists and results directly to your Start Screen, redesigns the playlist experience as a touch-friendly filmstrip and allows you to limit what videos little ones can watch by pinning the app to Kid’s Corner and configuring your YouTube Safety Settings. An update to YouTube for Windows Phone 7.5 is expected to follow in a few weeks.

Location-based social app Foursquare now incorporates voice commands, so you can use your voice to find and check-in at points of interest, and also brings notifications to your lock screen and lets you pin your favorite people and places on your Start screen.

Download the Foursquare and YouTube apps today to see more, and keep an eye on the Windows Phone Blog to get the latest on the phone front.
