Question About Having Checkie Post to Social Networks

Forum
iOS & iPadOS

Hi all. I tried to check in to a place using four square, and it forced me to download and install swarm. I find this app hard to use, so have installed checkien. While I like this app and its simple interface, I do have one question. How can I get checkie to post to my twitter and facebook after I tap on the place I want to check in to?

Hi. Swarm isn't that hard to use. If you don't want to say anything tap above the P letter you should see check in button. Personally Checy idnd't do well so I politely threw it away and am not advised on my own experiences to download it again. Thi sis my view, of course. Ifyou need help contact me off here I'll show you swarm isn't as scary as even I thought it was.

I spent some time looking at Swarm. The interface in my opinion, is almost impossible to navigate. The buttons and tabs are unlabeled, and there is no way that I can see to check in. They take several tries to find actual places were you can check in, but once you double tap on the place you want to check into, there is no way to check in. In my opinion, this app has serious accessibility issues.

Hello treky fan,

There are two ways to Check In using the Checkie. The first is the one finger double tap to instantly Check In. The other is doing a single finger triple tap. This will bring up the option that you have asked for.

When this page comes up. Notice that the Facebook and the Twitter is either set to ON or OFF. To toggle those options. Just do a single finger double tap to flip them to ON or OFF.

Once you have it set the way you like. You can now use the Check In button.

HTH

Hello Treky fan. First i'm sorry for the bad spelling in my original comment. Second, i to agre there are problems with the swarm app. I did let them know via swarmfeedback@foursquaresupport.com that things needed to change. They seemed quite receptive. so if you think it needs changing by all means please give a shout to them about improving accessibility. It makes sense as the same company puts out bothapps.

I find that strange, too. What seems to work for me is to first triple-tap on the place so that I can write something, swipe to twitter and/or facebook, and then turn the one off that you want to post to, by double-tapping it, and then coming back to it and double-tapping it to turn it on. That is how I post my check-ins to twitter. Sometimes it works when I don't do that, but I don't take those chances, lol.
