• 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.

"What was the name of that coffee shop?" Foursquare's Swarm helps you remember where you've been — from your local favorites to your world travels — with a simple check-in. See where you and your friends have checked in and view tips from others who have visited before.
It needs enhancements
It’s excellent application but it needs some enhancements like :
1- the main issue is that the application is very slow
2- in the inbox the messages font its toooooo small, sometimes I couldn’t read correctly and there is no way to enlarge it from inside the application,,, you should give the user the ability to make the font bigger.
3- there is no way to delete the notifications from the inbox. I need to delete some notifications like the friendship and the like notifications. You should give the user the ability to delete these notifications.
4- messages history, if i start a conversation with somebody and after 4 or 5 days i sent him something new, the application will start a new conversation without bringing the old history specially if i opened his profile and sent the message from inside his profile.
I wish you fix these important issues quickly and update your excellent application.
Swarm user for years, frustrated with lack of fixes
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.
