Gowalla Hits the App Catalog

by Robert Werlinger Tue, 09 Mar 2010 5:14 pm EST

It's here!  Gowalla, the hotly anticipated location-based social app, has finally hit the App Catalog, joining the likes of Foursquare and BrightKite (check out Parafoil on webOS for that).  Like Foursquare, Gowalla allows users can "check-in" to places and alert their friends via the app, Facebook and Twitter to where they are, and app logs all of your travels in a virtual passport.  Instead of  mayorships, badges and the somewhat competitive nature of Foursquare, Gowalla get virtual goods which can be dropped or picked up in various locations, stamps for places you've visited, pins, and a number of "trips" to complete.

The location space in mobile is rapidly heating up, with companies like Yelp, Facebook and Google getting into the game, and it's great to see these kinds of apps coming to webOS in such short order.

So, Foursquare users: now that you've got another choice, how many of you are going to make the switch?

 Thanks to everyone that sent this in!
