Gowalla Hits Android, Signs Travel Channel

Austin-based Gowalla, which develops a location-based social networking service, announced Monday that it has launched a new Android native application, and also tied into The Travel Channel. Gowalla previously only provided iPhone and web versions of its service. The new app is free, and available in the Android Market. Gowalla also said it has signed a new agreement with the Travel Channel, where it will integrate content from the network's Food Wars series, with its service. Financial details of that deal were not disclosed.
