Gowalla OS X Icon Pack

March 25, 2011 Leave a comment

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.

Ben Dodson the guy behind has moved the site and relaunched it as, “a series of apps for Gowalla that provide additional functionality such as item finders, detailed statistics, STE functions, and low-data usage.”

Along with the new site comes a new iPhone app called Wallabee Travel-Edition.

I’ll be trying everything out over the next couple of days and will give a full review early next week.

TriOut, a location app specifically designed for the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill area of North Carolina. Version 2 of their app (which is coming soon) will feature one of the first integrations with the new Gowalla API.

Here’s a sneak peak screenshot:

Not much info on how it will integrate with Gowalla yet, but once it comes out I’d love to hear some more about it from anyone out there in North Carolina.

Update – August 19, 2010 – 10:23pm PST: TriOut sent me a tweet with the following screenshot of their Gowalla integration:

Thanks guys. Nice way to leverage the popularity of Gowalla and Foursquare while allowing your app to focus on a particular region.

Here’s all we know so far:

Update: TechCrunch coverage:

Update – August 18, 2010 – 10:54pm PST: Looks like the integration will go live tomorrow:

Starting tomorrow, Gowalla check-ins you chose to post to Facebook will automatically be shared as check-ins—not simply a status update. 🙂

Gowalla API getting Check-In capabilities

No need for me to rewrite this whole article. The news is this: Next week the Gowalla API will add the ability to Check-In, meaning you won’t have to use the official Gowalla app to do so. Should lead to a lot more universal Check-In clients.
