DescriptionSwarm 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 3.0Wait for it… Wait for it…
• The leaderboard is back! Compete with your friends to see who’s having the most interesting week. Every check-in will earn you coins. You’ll get more coins when you check in with friends, become the Mayor, extend streaks… and more! Finish near the top of your leaderboard to earn sweet prizes. Remember, taunting your friends is encouraged... “O’Doyle Rules!”
• Messages and notifications have been combined into one easy to access inbox. In the words of Outkast, so fresh and so clean clean!
• Looking for your friends? We’ve combined the worldwide and nearby views into one “friends” tab. Keeping up and meeting up with friends just got a whole lot easier!
• And finally, we added a new “here now” section to the nearby view. At a packed restaurant, bumping club, or raucous sports stadium? Now you can see everyone who’s checked in with you. Man, this place is swarming!
