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 4.0

Welcome to Swarm 4.0. It’s pop quiz time!

* Where do you REALLY check in more, gyms or bars?
* What place do you think you check in the most — home, work, or the frozen banana stand?
* Which of your friends is your #1 check-in bff?

Pencils down!

You’ll find the answers to those questions and a whole lot more in the latest version of Swarm.

Lifeloggers rejoice! We’ve completely redesigned your profile to include beautiful stats and insights about all of the places you go. You’ll also see a ton of improvements to photos, including previews of multiple photos, additional privacy settings, and true-to-size photos in your feed.

While you’re busy perusing all your stats, don’t worry about missing a great check-in! We’ll collect the highlights into the Weekly Swarm — a weekly digest of your friends’ best check-ins. Lastly, we’ve rounded up all of the places you may have forgotten to check into and put them in one place. Now it’s easier than ever to fill up your Swarm map, even if you forgot to check in somewhere!
