Go local with Gowalla

The popular location-based app Gowalla for the iPhone has recently been made available for use on Android devices, allowing users to share their location with other Gowalla users and through social networks like Facebook and Twitter.

For now Android users can try a lightweight web app, but soon there will be a full native client.

It’s good to see Foursquare get some competition. Gowalla has a nice site that you can look through to get more details about how to use their app, or you can check out their video below to see some of the features in action.

We were able to meet one of the Gowalla devs at the most recent Austin Android User Group meet-up, and it seemed like they were working hard to deliver a great client. Do we have any Foursquare or Gowalla users here? Which do you prefer to use, or to the new users, which would you prefer to try?
