Swarm is described as making a game of life, “score every day with real-world perks and bragging rights, like being crowned the Mayor. Stay connected to your inner explorer, be truly aware of life’s journey, and have more fun along the way. Live your life more checked in,” the company says.

Jeff Glueck took over from Crowley as chief executive officer in January 2016 after the latter resigned.
