Memories Swarm around me

“Life is a song, sing it; Life is a game, play it.”~Sai Baba, Indian leader

I’m feeling nostalgic as I pack up my life. The phone app Timehop reminds me of what has been years ago on this date in my life.  So does the Swarm app.

Specialty and limited time only stickers

I’ve always adored Timehop, but Swarm…it took me awhile to fall in love with it. Now I am passionate about it.

On July 23, 2014, I ranted about the Foursquare app change. Foursquare is a location-based search/recommendation service. Want to find a nearby coffee shop? A place for dinner? Bars? Best nearby? It’s all there. The map is insanely accurate, better than my iPhone’s Maps or any other directional program out there. It also had a game function: checkin where you are, gain points, become Mayor and rule the world. Or at least rule the place you visit more than anyone else does.

Spend coins to upgrade certain collectible stickers for more coins at checkins

Swarm brought back that gameplay of checkins and Mayorships and added new elements such as coins and stickers. As I plot my way to an awesome coinage bragging rights 86 checkins from now, I discovered this post of my stats.  Interesting to look back and see how obsess–I mean, how interactive I’ve been with this app in 2 years 4 months, 19 days later.

This is fun! Even the official Foursquare Swarm Twitter feed finds me impressive.
