Swarm, the new app from Foursquare, is the fastest way to keep up and meet up with your friends. With Swarm, you can easily see who’s out nearby and who wants to hang out later.
- Want to meet up with friends? Quickly open up the app to see who is out nearby.
- Want to share what you’re doing? Checking in is faster and more fun than ever.
- Got an idea for something fun to do? Easily message all of your nearby friends.
Get started with Swarm now!
- 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, please note that continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
What's New in Version 2.0.1
2.0.1: This release fixes a few crashes, specifically around syncing your contacts and accepting friend requests.
In this release, we’ve added the ability to message your nearby friends (even if they don’t have Swarm) to quickly and easily meet up.
We also moved some things around. The check-in button is now closer to your thumb, at the bottom center of the screen. Try it out!
Finally, when viewing a friend’s check-in, you can quickly see more details about the place, including which of your friends has been there.
Get This App & Tell Your Friends!!!
This app is great and is easily one of my most used apps on my phone. The new format makes checking into places so easy and seamless. Being able to message friends from the app has proved to be an excellent way to make plans with my friends. I love being able to look back on places I've checked in to and learning about new places to go from my friends check ins. Go get this app and tell all your friends to as well!
"It's up to you as to how much information people find out."
We have to be safe with our information. I'm just wanting to hopefully be of a reminder to be careful. For example, DO NOT check in at your home, apartment building etc.. Check into your own "NAMED" location. Swarm is amazingly safe. It just depends who is following you on Swarm as well as what other social media networks you share these check-ins to. And the other is yes I do love this app.
The Best Social Radar
So, I get that Swarm is a niche, but I think all the people whining about the app split haven't taken a minute to consider how the two apps work. Swarm is the best implementation of geo-social out there. Know where your friends are, what they're up to, if they're in the neighborhood, and keep it light and fun. This is Swarm. Foursquare is the city guide it was always best at being.
UPDATE: Hey look, easier access to notifications! And cool messages with stickers!
