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 3.4.1

Do you love earning coins and using stickers on your check-ins? Good, ‘cause you can now earn bonus coins by adding certain stickers to your check-ins! Try using your Joey Beans coffee sticker next time you check in at a coffee shop. Or the Famous Ray sticker at your next pizza place. This is just the first step in some big and exciting changes coming to Swarm.

We’ve also made it super easy to customize how often you’ll receive notifications from your friends’ check-ins — with Always, Nearby or Mute settings. So set your best friends to “Always” while your annoying co-worker gets the “Mute”! You can find these under Settings or on your friends’ profile pages.

For all your fancy iPhone 6s owners, we’ve got another 3D Touch feature for you! You can now press on your friends’ check-ins to quickly access more info about that place. No goofy 3D glasses required.
