Swarm — by Foursquare
By Foursquare Labs, Inc.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Swarm turns every day into a game! Earn prizes and compete with friends based on the places you go. See when your friends are hanging out nearby, so you never miss out on the fun!
• Check in to earn prizes, 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!”
• Want to meet up with friends? Just open Swarm to see who’s hanging out nearby. Have a better idea? Quickly message your friends to make plans and meet up.
* 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 4.6
Swarm went on a camping trip last week and got a few mosquito bites. Guess that’s what happens in the summer. It was itchy for a minute, but we sleep well (in our own beds, not in a tent) knowing that those bugs are now dead.
Swarm is really a pretty awesome idea. Love the sticker achievements and the Mayor ability.
Me and a couple of my friends compete for Mayorships and try to make it to the top of the leaderboard.
When paired with Foursquare, this app lets you find the best place in town, and who to ask about what.
This app seems to work only when it wants to, not when you need it to. Too often it freezes or crashes in the middle of operations. The developers don't seem to care about their users as they have been very slow to fix very basic problems. If you come to rely on this app you will soon regret doing so as it will you down again and again when you most need it.
Mayors should do more
App is nice but it would be even better if the mayors can actually get stuff or do something. Maybe interact with others swarmers that are there, or receive a free great if you have that partnership with the business. Something to think about....
