Swarm by Foursquare


“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.

Recent changes:
• The leaderboard is back! Compete with friends to see who’s having the best week. Every check-in earns you coins. Get more coins when you check in with friends, extend streaks… and more! Finish near the top to earn prizes!

• Messages and notifications were combined into one easy to access inbox.

• Worldwide and nearby views were combined into one “friends” tab. Keeping up with friends just got a whole lot easier!

• Added a “here now” section so you can see everyone who’s checked in with you.

Thanks for bringing back Mayor ships and making fun again! Please fix the part where we enter text before checking in. I can't see what I'm typing, I have to close the keyboard. Otherwise, it's perfect 👌!

I really wish you guys didn't mess this up earlier The mass exodus from foursquare is sad, but understandable. Y'all took something fun and made it serious. Now y'all learned your lesson and are re-"gameifying" it back, but I fear it might be too late...

Still can't be mayor So I can see all my iOS buddies becoming mayor, but my check-ins don't count.

App just plain sucks With every update to this app, I have to wait days for a new update to fix the bugs they dropped in. Love the concept and addicted. This is the most frustrating app on my phone.
