Since Foursquare announced the Swarm app, there has been a fair amount of interest in it. But now it is possible to get hands on with this new app and see exactly what all the fuss is about. The idea behind Swarm is to provide the user with a way of finding out who of their friends are nearby to either meet up or maybe just share what you are doing at the moment. There is a feature that allows the users to organise a night out, event or special occasion. It’s made easy because of the GPS feature that running in the app and can be picked up by other users.
Normally, as with many apps that run in the background there is an issue on how much battery it is going to use. However, according to the developers they have been working to make Swarm power efficient. The Swarm app is free and available now from iTunes for iOS powered devices and Google Play for Android users.
