Swarm is the best way to keep track of the places you go. From the new café downtown to that killer ramen spot in Tokyo, you’ll never ask “what was the name of that place?” again. Whether you love to be a local, or are trying to travel the globe, check in so you can remember everywhere with Swarm. • This is lifelogging made easy. Each time you check in we’ll add a pin your personal map so you can look back on the places you visit. Help out your future self by adding a photo or a note to your check-ins to make the memories all the better. • Indian Restaurant? Check. Karaoke bar? Check. Haven’t been to an Art Museum yet? Now’s your chance to go somewhere new! Explore more and collect different types of places. You’ll earn fun Stickers along the way. • Whether it’s your 10th week in a row at the gym, first time to Canada, or the 25th time you’ve gotten ice cream with your BFF, the more you check in, the more helpful insights you’ll get about your habits and explorations. *A note on battery. We’ve spent *years* developing the location technology that powers Foursquare 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.

 Why to reply to reviews?

User reviews affect conversion to installs and app rating. Featured and helpful reviews are the first to be noticed by users and in case of no response can affect download rate. This is why it is highly recommended to reply to them.

One of my favorite apps to use regularly. I’ve been using it since 2010 (just Foursquare back then). The motivation then was to get deals companies would have for “mayors,” etc., and to be “mayor” of places for the fun of it. Since then, I haven’t seen any deals for years. I basically keep using it to have a “journal” of where I go. I cannot say how many times this has come in handy, to be able to search history and see where I was on a certain day in the past 9 ½+ years, which is a huge chunk (25%) of my lifetime, at present. The mayorships are still fun. I love looking back on the daily history scroll, even though sometimes it involves sad memories. Overall I really enjoy using Swarm and am glad it exists!

I was a Foursquare user for a long time, then got moved to Swarm when they were forcing people to switch. It has been a great way to keep a history of my check-ins, and I like to have it linked to my twitter. I have two huge problems though and they have persisted for years and I have emailed and tweeted support multiple times and they either ignore me or tell me they are “working on it.” Well, they’ve been “working on it” for years now and nothing has changed. First, the app is hit-or-miss in whether it recognizes an event is taking place at the location of your check in. For example, checking in at a music venue and it doesn’t recognize a concert is taking place, or at an arena and it doesn’t recognize the pro sporting event that’s happening. This has gotten worse the last few years and it only recognizes maybe 60% of the events I’m attending. And these are huge events with anywhere from 1K-20k people. Secondly, if you have the app linked to twitter, it tweets your check-in, then ruins it by sticking an ad in the tweet with a pic of their logo and link to the Swarm website. It makes your timeline ugly as hell and you can’t change it. I wish to hell there was a different app I could use for check ins but unfortunately Swarm is the only one, so I’m stuck. I would pay $$$ for an app that fixed these issues, but oh well.

I’ve been a long time user, but went away for a while sure to these problems, which have only gotten worse. Although I check in more than others, I've lost all mayorships I ever had and cannot get them back anywhere. When I look at my profile it says I have 7 mayorships, but when I look at what they are, it says I have none. And now this week, on Saturday I had over 2000 coin points for the week but come Sunday morning, I'm at zero, going from first place to last in my group of friends and every subsequent check in shows for a few seconds then goes back to zero. And what can you do with these coins anyway. They get you nothing; no discounts or perks with vendors or anything. I've reported mayorship thing, but it seems there isn't anyone at home at Swarm/Foursquare corporate anymore because there has been no response. Plus it's way too easy to game the system by checking into nearby things you aren't actuality at or while driving by. Don't expect much from this app. I used to have tons of my friends on here, mostly via Facebook, but I'm down to just 8 friends now and one is my wife. Not much of an app, game or useful system. Skip it.

I’ve been tracking with Swarm since 2011. I use this app daily. My husband and I travel a lot and it’s hard to remember, let’s say, every brewery or coffee shop you’ve ever been too. Inevitably at some point someone will say hey what’s that coffee shop we were at 6 years ago in Texas.. I know bc of Swarm. Also I can see my daily activity at a glance. This makes it easier when I’m like.. was that 2 days ago or a week ago that I went to the diner for breakfast? The map function is awesome. I can see all of the places I haven’t visited yet at a glance... looks like I need to explore the Dakotas :)

I LOVE Swarm! This app is not just about checking into places but connecting with people! Of course, I’m a sucker for gamification & love gaining mayorships, but even more I love seeing where my friends are in the world! How awesome to keep up with your communities in a simplified & specific app like Swarm! If you’re an intentional community builder, you’ll love this. If you travel often, download this & immediately see what your friends are doing when you arrive. Community is what makes anything & everything last. Swarm is the perfect place to help build community everywhere you are in the world!
