A few weeks after the launch of Swarm – the social meeting app heir to the Foursquare check-ins – the team publishes on its blog some clarifications regarding the new app and the future of Foursquare itself.

After a brief intro full of enthusiasm here is that the Foursquare team immediately begins to explain what the two apps stand for: Swarm for people who want to the fastest and easiest way to connect with their friends.The main application, instead, for explorers who want to know the best places and share what they have discovered with others. Whether there really was a need for two separate apps, we're not sure.

Following are questions and answers such as:

How much does Neighborhood Sharing impact on the battery of my smartphone?

Swarm uses a 0.7% then for this function, which is automatically closed when the battery drops below 30%.

Why does the arrow localization services stay when I close Swarm on iOS?

The icon does not mean that we use GPS, but only means that location services are available for use by Swarm.

Do you have other doubts? You can figure it out here. And if, despite the reading, they haven't yet eclipsed, send them here.
