Swarm — by Foursquare

Checking in on Swarm makes a game of life: score every day with real-world perks and bragging rights, like being crowned the Mayor. Stay connected to your inner explorer, be truly aware of life’s journey, and have more fun along the way. Live your life more checked in. Easier than ever to lifelog! Check in to keep track of where you've been and remember 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!” Keep track of important milestones every time you check in. Can't remember a specific location? We've got you covered. Swarm can track places for you, then you can easily search your check-in history to find exactly what you're looking for. Swarm will remember the places you go for you. Think you’re a local? Check in and try to earn the title of “Mayor” at your favorite spots. But be careful, others will be coming for that crown. “I checkin and compete to become mayor of my local bar. I love that Swarm makes average real life things fun.” - Melissa, Swarm user Meet up with friends! Share your location with a check-in and see friends nearby. A serendipitous Swarm check-in can help you find friends when you’re out and about. Don’t have any friends nearby? Not a problem! Swarm is not only a great way to lifelog for yourself, but to keep track of your friends’ adventures as well, no matter how far far away they are. 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.
