Beta Test This! Gowalla for Android

We’re finding that many of our readers and twitter followers love to try out new applications.  Any time we mention a developer is looking for feedback or insight into their application(s), you guys seem to jump all over it.  Here’s another one, and its a pretty big title – Gowalla.

Gowalla is a location-based social networking game that seems to be picking up quite a bit of steam. Many liken it to foursquare in how it lets users to checkin to places, share locations, experiences, and pick up stamps for their ‘passport’. I downloaded Gowalla earlier this morning and can already see myself getting addicted to it.  However, I am not certain I will be integrating twitter into it just yet.  I don’t wanna flood the feed with all the places I visit around town.

Reading through the Gowalla blog, it sounds like the developers are pretty big on Android.  Official representative Josh Williams posted a short blurb on the status of the app where he says, “…Our goal has been to do this right and provide a premium experience on the Android platform. We don’t want it to play second fiddle to the iPhone.”

If beta testing and social networking games are your thing, then I would recommend heading to http://static.gowalla.com/gowalla-android-20100212.apk from your Android handset.  You can also scan the barcode below with your Android phone and get there too.

Thanks for the heads up Wes!

    I like this app, but still lacks some important elements. For one reason or another application can not find my current position as accurately as the web version.
