Gowalla 3 marks truce, checks into Foursquare, Facebook

updated 04:50 pm EST, Thu December 2, 2010

Most complete Gowalla 3 iPhone app released

Gowalla, the check-in service that competed with Foursquare, has opted out of direct competition and has now released Gowalla 3.0 for iPhone (free, App Store) to let users link to their Foursquare and Facebook accounts. The app also lets users view their friends' check-ins from the three services. The user interface is also now slightly improved, with the check-in button accessible from the toolbar.

Other quirks, such as having to wait to draft a message while the app finds the user's current location, have also been addressed. Posts can be made directly to Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr. Notes can be made on locations for users themselves or friends, while highlights can be added right from the iPhone app. Highlights are now viewable.

The update is the company's most involved to date, and requires iOS 3.1. Gowalla's revamp isn't yet available for the iPad.
