fouraquare and swarm

While Foursquare tells your friends where you are, it won’t in the near future. Forusquare will be splitting its app into the original and a new app called Swarm this summer.

The original Foursquare app will get a sort of makeover and will focus more on discovering new places and their reviews. It will be dropping the check-in feature completely.Swarm on the other hand will what your friends are up to and what they’ll be doing next. The app will hit iOS and Android in the coming weeks, followed by a Windows Phone version later. You can sign up on and you’ll be notified via an email when the app gets released.

The move is being done to give a better future to Foursqaure, which according to the developers, is turning more into a check in button.
