Checking in on Swarm makes a game of life: score every day with real-world perks and bragging rights, like being crowned the Mayor. Stay connected to your inner explorer, be truly aware of life’s journey, and have more fun along the way. Live your life more checked in.
• Check in to earn perks, and compete with friends to see who’s having the best week on the leaderboard. Finish near the top to earn sweet bonuses!
• Think you’re a local? Then try to earn the title of “Mayor” at your favorite spots. But be careful, others will be coming for your crown.
• Keep track of where you’ve been and who you’ve hung out with. After you check in we’ll show you interesting little insights like: “That’s 5 weeks in a row at bars!” or “That’s your 25th time hanging out with Courtney!”
*A note on battery. We’ve spent *years* developing the location technology that powers Swarm, making it extremely power efficient. But, as with all apps of this type, continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
What's New in Version 4.7
Introducing: Swarm’s Trivia Game! It's simple. Every so often you’ll be quizzed about past check-ins. When were you last at the gym? Seen your pal Tracey recently? Answer correctly to win bonus coins!
For iPhone users with a fancy new operating system: we’ve got a fancy new sticker pack. No need to take the time to type "Do you want to grab coffee?”, just pop that Joey Beans sticker into a message and hit send.
We know you've all been wondering "What the heck do I do with all these coins I've earned?"
Coins can now be used to unlock and redeem special Perks available in the US. So that Tuesday night grocery store check-in?....It just got you a free drink at the bar down the block. Cheers.
Notification function change???
Not really happy that the functionality and ease of 'liking ❤️' a friends check-in was removed from the notification pop-up and from the Apple Watch. Now we have to open the app to like it??? Thought the point of this improved iOS was to have less taps for the user to go through. We had the ability before... why remove it??? 😒
Love this app
Been using it for years and have no complaints. My fav feature is the profile map where you can zoom in on a particular geographic area and bring up the places you checked into in the past. A great way to give recommendations and catalog the places you've tried!
Love the new way to earn coins by answering Trivia questions about your personal lifelog history. And thanks Swarm team for giving us a new way to spend our hard-earned Coins on unlocking Perks and discounts when you check-in at various places around town.
