Foursquare Swarm: The Check In App
By Foursquare Labs, Inc.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Keep track of your adventures and turn every day into a game! With Foursquare Swarm you can remember the places you go and celebrate your accomplishments with stickers and coins. Stay connected to your inner explorer and have more fun along the way. Live your life more checked in.
• 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 Foursquare 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 4.17
Oh, nothing new to see here...yet. We're working on cooking up something BIG for our next release. Until then, live every week like it's Shark Week.
Please merge back with Foursquare!!
When I look at all my Swarm friends' feeds, almost all of them stopped checking in around the same time in 2014--when Swarm split off from Foursquare. Three years later, it's clear: the split into two apps isn't working. It's not what people want, and so people aren't using it as much anymore. There is no reason why this can't be one app. We could have two different lists of friends in the same app (check-in friends and review friends), if that's the issue. Just squish then back together into one app, and call the whole thing Foursquare again.
Love using this app to show my family and friends where I am and what I am doing. Also great for remembering places you been, things you done, and what you have eaten. Use along with the Foursquare app to find new places to try and leave reviews. Awesome company.
Why can't we use Bitmoji or mesh w/Foursquare?
The Swarm app is pretty decent, it's about the only part of the old Foursquare that I actively use (or used). I'd still much rather go back to just one app for Swarm & Foursquare, like in the past. Why can't we yet paste Bitmoji into our checkins? That would at least make Swarm
More personalized and awesome to show off! 3 stars until all the above happens.
