Foursquare has updated its recently launched standalone check-in app Swarm. This time the iOS app is receiving an update that takes advantage of the iOS 8 feature of widgets.
The app now gets a widget that lets you check-in without launching the app. It can be userd by simply swiping down the notification menu from top of your device and Swarm will display your current location. In addition a check-in button and a list of your friends that are nearby will also be seen.
One of the main aim of the app is to simplify and speed-up your check-ins. The updated Swarm app is available on the Apple App Store. It is not known whether Swarm will bring the same feature to Android and Windows Phone. Swarm was last updated in September with more stickers and better check-in options.
