New Gowalla 3 App

Gowalla 3 Launches Today

Popular location-based app Gowalla released today its most significant update to date. The biggest addition: the integration of other location-based services via a "combined activity tab" that merges your Gowalla check-ins with Facebook Places and Foursquare check-ins, and it enables sharing via Twitter and Tumblr. In addition, you can see friends' Foursquare and Facebook check-ins directly in your Gowalla news feed, without hitting up any other service.

The new Gowalla is also sporting a new, smarter check-in system that "guesses" where you may be based on your current location and check-in history, similar to Foursquare's "My Favorites" location suggestions. And that's not all! For more of what's new, keep reading.

Here's more of what's new in Gowalla 3:

  • An improved photo preview allows you to quickly view photos friends are posting from various locations.
  • The addition of Bookmarks allows you to flag favorite spots or places you'd like to check out in the future, similar to bookmarking a web page.
  • You can now leave Notes at certain locations, and (this is the best part!) you can even leave a note for yourself or a specific friend! Plus, you can leave these notes via the app or the website.

Gowalla 3 for iPhone is available now, with iPad, Android, and BlackBerry updates coming soon.
