Foursquare announces new app

New app Swarm to help users share status and locate friends.

Foursquare has announced it has created a new app, Swarm. 

The development comes in response to the way users are using Foursquare – both as a way to discover places and as a way to keep up with friends.  Swarm will help people locate and arrange to meet friends and to share their own status and location.

Meanwhile, Foursquare itself will be evolving, focusing on ‘discovery’ and personalised, local search.
