Print Page

Location-based app Gowalla has released version 3 of its iPhone application.

The biggest addition in this new version is the integration with other location-based services Facebook Places and Foursquare. This means you can now check into those services and also view all checkins from friends using Gowalla. And that is not all, you can also unlock Foursquare badges and get Facebook deals. As an added bonus, Gowalla also pulls in Foursquare Tips whenever you check in.

Another new feature is “Notes.” It enables you to leave a note for a friend at a specific location. Your friend will be alerted straight away, but they won’t be able to read it until they check in to that location. You can also leave these notes via the website.

It also added photos to the Activity Feed, and bookmarking for keeping track of your favorite locations.

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.

Gowalla 3 is currently available only for the iPhone, Gowalla plans on releasing this new version for the Android and other mobile devices in early 2011.
