Foursquare Swarm: Check-in App

Category: 

Description of App: 

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. • Check in to earn perks, 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!” *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.
