There’s a brand new update of Swarm out today, and it addresses two of the constant asks from our community – more stickers, and make it easier to check in the people you’re with.
First up, when you’re looking to add a little flair to your check-in, you’ll notice an easier way to choose from your stickers. When you’re checking in and you tap on the sticker book icon, you’ll see all the stickers that you’ve unlocked, those that you don’t yet have, and teases of new stickers to come in the future. And, if you tap on the silhouette of one you haven’t earned yet, you’ll see a little clue as to how you can soon make it yours (without taking all the fun away). Oh, and those question marks? We wanted to keep some stickers a total mystery.
We’ve also made it easier to check in with your friends. When you’re checking in, tapping the add friends button will show you a list of friends you’ve recently been with, as well as friends that are nearby. Tap whoever you’re with and they’ll be checked in.
Finally, if you’re on iOS, we’re giving you an early sneak preview of the new map view of your history. Tap on the little map icon, and you’ll see all your check-ins around the world, broken down by where they are. It’s still got a bug or two, but it’s a feature that people ask for a ton.
In the past few months since releasing Swarm, we’ve been working hard to listen to all of your feedback and build new features for the app as fast as possible. We’ve also put a lot of focus on location accuracy and fixed some bugs in the meantime. As always, let us know your thoughts on the update at firstname.lastname@example.org.
