Yesss. It takes way too long to check in on Swarm.

@tzhongg yes! That's the thinking! I originally developed this app in 2011 before Swarm when it was even slower to check in than it is now. I still take pride in being the quickest way to check in. Also, there's an Apple Watch app on the way!

This shouldn't have to exist, right? 😉

@rrhoover Hey Ryan :) Yes, the introduction of Swarm mostly obviated the need for this app. I started developing this in 2011 way before Swarm when it was way slower than it even is now to check in. I still take pride in being a super minimal Foursquare/Swarm check-in client and I have a small cult following. There's an Apple Watch app and a today extension on the way as well!

@rrhoover @timonus I've been a LONG time user of Checkie. Swarm did kind of steal it's thunder, but in my mind kind of validated the separation of Swarm from Foursquare.

@chrismessina happy to hear that! What keeps you using it? I'm curious. Been wondering what I can do next that'll keep it competitive and keep people happy.

Howdy guys, I've been developing Checkie as a Foursquare client since 2012, and originally it was a Gowalla/Foursquare client named ✓In I made in 2009. There's an Apple Watch app and a today extension on the way! I'm planning on submitting the Apple Watch app as soon as Apple permits it.

@timonus also planning on adding @-mentions in the near future
