Gowalla iPhone Update 3.2.1

March 29, 2011 Leave a comment

This long awaited update should fix the extra annoying login/logout bug that plagued the last release.  We also hope that it fixes the bug that keeps us all from dropping items and founding locations.

Hit up the App Store and download the fix now.

SXSW Item Updates

March 28, 2011 Leave a comment

For those of you that were able to make it to our fair city of Austin, TX to experience all the greatness of SXSW we hope that you were able to score a few of the new items.  These items were inspired by various partnerships (Southwester Airlines) and product launches (iPad 2 at the special SXSW Apple “Pop Up” Store).  If you were around to take part in any of the Gowalla parties you might have also been able to snag the “Golden Viewmaster” and the “Gowallaby Ballooon”.

If you are both a Mac and a Gowalla user, you will be able to appreciate Redeeming Design’s, Gowalla inspired, OS X Icon Pack.   Download it for free and feel like you are out-and-about even when you are stuck behind your desk.

Thanks to @ericl for bringing this to our attention.

Well Dressed Gowallabies

If you are out shopping you have probably noticed that new custom stamps are popping up all over the place for retail locations.  One of the newer, and rarer finds, is the custom stamp created for Rugby by Ralph Lauren.

Nice looking stamp, now get out and try and track one down.  Remember you can just look, you don’t actually have to buy anything.

He’s a Daytripper…

March 10, 2011 Leave a comment

If you are like me, you love travel shows.   It’s a way to virtually explore places you have never been, and maybe even add new places to your list of locations to visit. One of my favorite travel shows is called The Daytripper, with Chet Garner.

Not only is Chet the host of the show, but he is also an avid Gowallaphile like the rest of us.  So if you are from Texas, or just in town for SXSW, make sure to follow Chet in his adventures and at the same time pick up some of his one-of-a-kind custom “Daytripper” pins along the way.

Currently there are 11 trips, but Chet is busy filming Season #3 so I’m sure there will be more to come.

If you are in Austin for the annual SXSW extravaganza (that’s the abbreviation for “South By Southwest” for all of you that don’t know), you have a chance to pick up one of these 737 Model Airplanes:

It’s pretty cool to just add this little item to your archive list, but it doesn’t stop there.  When you find one you get a chance to win a prize from Southwest airlines!
