What's New

2.0.1: This release fixes a few crashes, specifically around syncing your contacts and accepting friend requests.

Introducing messages!
In this release, we’ve added the ability to message your nearby friends (even if they don’t have Swarm) to quickly and easily meet up.

We also moved some things around. The check-in button is now closer to your thumb, at the bottom center of the screen. Try it out!

Finally, when viewing a friend’s check-in, you can quickly see more details about the place, including which of your friends has been there.

App Description

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!


- A note on battery – We've spent years developing the location technology that powers Swarm, making it extremely power efficient. But, as with all apps of this type, please note that continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
