Palm Pre and Palm Pixi users have a treat stored in for them. Gowalla declared the direct accessibility of a local Gowalla application service, particularly developed for Palm webOS handset users.
Thanks to this app, people who own Palm Pre and Palm Pixi can now effortlessly download the application from the Palm App Catalog on their device and boast of a personalized Gowalla experience.
“Palm webOS is a beautiful mobile operating system and we live in a beautiful world. It only seems right to have Gowalla for webOS showcasing the rich experience of our service. We’re very happy that Pre and Pixi owners can now go out with Gowalla too,” commented, Josh Williams, CEO and co-founder of Gowalla.
“Palm webOS is all about staying connected in a fast-moving world. With its ability to ‘check in’ and connect people and places around the globe, Gowalla is a perfect fit for webOS and an exciting addition to the Palm App Catalog,” stated, Joe Hayashi, vice president, Platform and Tools, Palm, Inc.
Palm webOS users can now embrace a Gowalla experience customized for their particular device. Owing to their location-aware Pre or Pixi handsets, users can swiftly find close by restaurants, parks, museums, boutiques and more. The app enables it quite simple to check in, share the place with friends and then write down a comment to help potential visitors.
The launch of Gowalla for webOS is right in time to correspond with Austin, Texas’ SXSW Interactive Festival that commences from March 12. Users of Gowalla for webOS can ‘check in’ at SXSW sites, sessions and events to share their locations with fellow attendees and to earn SXSW-related prizes.
Furthermore, Palm may be offering several Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus handsets via Gowalla at SXSW as virtual goods redeemable for the real phones. Gowalla for webOS is accessible for no charge at the Palm App Catalog or at Gowalla.com.
