Foursquare is once again bringing back a feature that was a part of its main app before it spun off its check-in features to Swarm. Now Swarm users can access leaderboards with the latest 3.0 version update.
The feature is being added a couple of months after Foursquare brought back Mayorships again in the Swarm app. Here's what users can expect from the new 3.0 edition of Swarm:
- The leaderboard is back! Compete with your friends to see who's having the most interesting week. Every check-in will earn you coins. You'll get more coins when you check in with friends, become the Mayor, extend streaks… and more! Finish near the top of your leaderboard to earn sweet prizes. Remember, taunting your friends is encouraged... "O'Doyle Rules!"
- Messages and notifications have been combined into one easy to access inbox. In the words of Outkast, so fresh and so clean clean!
- Looking for your friends? We've combined the worldwide and nearby views into one "friends" tab. Keeping up and meeting up with friends just got a whole lot easier!
- And finally, we added a new "here now" section to the nearby view. At a packed restaurant, bumping club, or raucous sports stadium? Now you can see everyone who's checked in with you. Man, this place is swarming!
You can check out the new additions to Swarm right now in the Google Play Store.
