I have been a Foursquare user for years, using it to checking in at location and use it for finding recommendations. Earlier this year Foursquare split its service into two apps, one for recommendations and one for checking in. Android and iOS have had the separate apps for about a month and yesterday the checkin app called Swarm arrived for Windows Phone.
With the app you can see where you friend are and checkin to a location, you can also message nearby friends. The Windows Phone version looks almost identical to the Android version but with the Lumia 1520 you can to see a lot more information on the screen than I can on the Nexus 5, it’s one of a few Windows Phone apps that takes advantage of the large screen.
The app is free from the Windows Phone Store.
Swarm, the new app from Foursquare, 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.
– Want to meet up with friends? Quickly open up the app to see who is out nearby.
– Want to share what you’re doing? Checking in is faster and more fun than ever.
– Got an idea for something fun to do? Easily message all of your nearby friends.
Get started with Swarm now!
