Swarm is an application from Foursquare which is the fastest way to keep up and meet up with your friends. With Swarm, you can easily see who’s out nearby and who wants to hang out later.
When Foursquare launched, mayorships and badges added a layer of playfulness and gamification to the action of exploring the physical world, encouraging users to check-in to new and varying places often in an effort to one-up their friends with more badges and mayorships, or compete for the same mayorships.
Slowly FourSquare changes its rom the gaming aspect to recommendations and discovery, similar to Yelp, going so far as to kill off mayorships in May of last year when the company introduced a completely revamped version of Foursquare and split off check-ins into a separate app called Swarm.
The previous version of Swarm was tremendously lacking in the playfulness that the original Foursquare app had, though, and the company eventually vowed to bring that back in even fuller force than ever before. Now the application has been updated to latest version 2.5 with reintroducing the badges and a new messaging feature. Currently this application is available on the Apple App Store. Interested candidates can download the application from App Store.
