The original foursquare is back.. All the cool features that were there in original 4sq before the split are back. Swarm now has mayorships, points are now coins,badges are now called stickers plus some cool effects. The only issue is now u can't tag non swarm users in check-ins but that's coz of FB policies. But u can always ask your friends to install swarm and link there fb acc. with it even if they don't wanna use it.
Best Check In App The only problem is that it doesn't have notification sounds when friends have checked in. Thanks For Bringing Mayorships Back and Finally Leaderboard!! A nicer interface after the latest update. The coin sound is however annoying and should have an option to disable or enable it. Auto suggestion of place is great. However these few days, there's a glitch with earning coins. I checked in but earned no coins. Please fix
Meh ...this could be so much fun! People seem hesitant to play though and I agree it seems complicated. All these coins, bonus promoted but how to collect? It seems like you are expanding and releasing new features with not much explanation of how (or why) to use. A little competition can be fun BUT I have no wish to "taunt" my friends.
Love the new features including points for week, but inconsistent or defects in spoof check-in detection sucks it all up Turning back to Single mayor @ given location is very good. Stickers and mayorship distinctive selection allowing is also much appreciated. However the weekly leadership board with points is very addictive and when you get into the game with your own friends randomly points awarding is not functioning or swarm has new rules number of points per day or incorrect spoof detection. This is very disappointing when we engage in it. If a feature is given it should be well handled and well informed of rules.
Never version ok, but annoying The app works fine, but the constant noise of the stupid coin tally and again when you swipe away the display of the tally is NOT acceptable for use without the whole phone silenced. I keep forgetting and I check in when out to dinner or lunch and am horribly embarrassed by the stupid childish sound effects they chose.
I wish you would do away with the senseless points and mayorship systems again. Also, I miss the ability to write tips for places I go within the app and unlocking badges (although the stickers are cool). Love sharing my check-ins with FB and Twitter but would also like to see ability to post to and from Instagram, Pinterest, Shazam, and Classic Glue. Being able to share my points to Instagram after I've checked in is stupid and pointless. Looking forward to future updates.
We've introduced two new features to help you keep track of all the great places you've been.
Bad reception at the concert? Forgot to check in at the gym? Not a problem! Now, when we think you've been at a place but you haven't checked in, we'll suggest that place in your history on your profile. We'll also keep an eye out and remind you to check in when you arrive somewhere.
We’ll be rolling out these features over a few weeks so don’t worry if you don’t see them right away!
