- 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 2.2
This version contains a few fixes to make Swarm more reliable and stable.
Took out the reason I use Foursquare
I use(d) Foursquare to check in to places. That translated to about 90% of my usage of the app. Every now and then I'd check the other features, but really only when I was bored (usually when I was waiting for food or something.)
Now I need a second app to check in? Why? Who thought this was a good idea? I found out I couldn't check in using Foursquare while I was out too, with no wifi, so I had to sit and wait for the app to download very slowly, since I was in a place that was packed with hundreds of people.
I check in to places so I can keep a diary of sorts. I like to look back on trips and remember the places I've been. I don't do it to brag, or to snoop on my friends, and most of the time I check in while I'm LEAVING a place so people don't know exactly where I am.
Having a separate app for the sole purpose of checking in is asinine. You took out the main reason I use Foursquare! I don't understand why you separated these things, and I'm incredibly unhappy that you did. I'm hoping the negative reviews will help you rethink this decision.
Swarm for Foursquare
I am delighted to include among my favorite applications this excellent feature called Swarms for Foursquare . My best friends are on my list with Swarm . We have great chats . I recommend Swarm to all my contacts , best friends from all over the World on Swarm, too. I can find the best restaurants, places to visit and stay at the best hotels , too. I ll give five stars to this excellent application connected with Foursquare. As a frequent user of Swarms I'll give 5 Stars.
Fun to use...but not sue why I use it
If you're looking for a "check in" app I think this one is the best. Or at least it seems like the most fun one to use. I feel checking in everywhere has become a compulsion! I don't know why but I like getting and using the stickers when I check in. There's no real purpose to them though.....but I must have them!
This app seems to be the quickest at updating the current list of locations.
