Are you on Gowalla?

08Jan10

I have to admit. I was a bit overwhelmed and not very impressed by the amount of location based check-in iPhone apps.  I tried so hard to give Foursquare a fighting chance.  I became the Mayor of so many fun places… then one day I looked at my phone and asked myself — WHY?! It made no sense.  I had heard of Gowalla, since it was created in Austin and I’m so on top of technology, but it seemed like another useless one.  My good friend Duncan, who now lives in Berkely and works for Pixar (!!!), told me to give it a second chance.  Ok.. Ok… I’ll try.  I have to say– I’m addicted.  It’s nice because you have to be actually physically in the spot tocheck i (unlike Foursquare) and you get to pick up and leave items for others! You get badges, pins, etc. You also can go on special “Trips” for instance this Austin Bar Crawl….

Perhaps I’m as sucker for good graphics and an AWESOME UI.
