About this app

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 so you can keep track and remember your history. 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 as you track your habits and explorations.

Keep up and meet up with friends. Share your location with a checkin and see friends nearby. A serendipitous checkin can help you find friends when you’re out and about and see who’s here.

•Don’t have any friends nearby? Not a problem! Not only is this app a great way to lifelog and remember for yourself, but to keep track of your friends’ adventures as well, no matter how far far away they are.

•Lifelog your adventures so your history is less questions, more remembering the good times.

*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.

It's definitely useful, but a few edits could make it extremely usable. I love having a timeline of the places i go, but the check-in process is pretty restrictive to present, current, online locations. I wish you could go back and edit the time you visited the place. Sometimes my phone isn't or I've had a couple places that didn't automatically generate and when I go back I can't edit when I visited it. It also has some hiccups when you try to check in from a friend's place.

After the most recent update, every single time I check in I'm prompted to update my settings to allow Swarm to access my location when I'm not using the app. I don't want to change my settings, and being continually asked to is really decreasing my enjoyment of the app. Even after selecting the "don't ask again" option from my phone menu, I keep getting the pop-up. I've used Foursquare/Swarm for almost ten years, but I'm not sure how much longer I'll be a user if this continues.
