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 1.0.6

Thanks for all your feedback so far. We're building your requests as fast as we can. New in this version:

- More mayor: in each and every check-in, you can now see a leaderboard of your friends that shows who has been there the most, and who is the mayor amongst your friends.
- Easier sharing: you've asked for an easier way to send check-ins to Facebook and Twitter. This update has them.
- Better check-ins: we made a bunch of improvements on the backend, so check-ins should be faster and more accurate.
- More about the place you're at: now, when you check in, you'll see a couple great place photos of the place you're at.

Thanks for using Swarm. Keep sending your ideas to We have a lot more improvements coming your way!
