Gowalla Updates Android Client

Austin-based Gowalla, the provider of location-based social networking services, announced this morning that it has launched a new version of Google for Android. The firm said the software is a "complete new vision" of using Gowalla, including both features of its recently updated iPhone version, as well as features it says are "uniquely Android". New features include a redesigned activity feed; easier check-ins; highlighting of friends' photos; and push notifications. Gowalla said the updated software is available in the Android Market.
