Is there a way for me to set up notifications (e.g. iPhone push notifications, or email) when a Foursquare friend checks in nearby? Currently it looks like I can turn on notifications for all check-ins, but I can't restrict them to check-ins near my last one:

Now that the check-ins are in Swarm and not in Foursquare there is a way to set notifications only for the nearby check-ins. At least according to the official documentation.
