Location based social games are becoming more and more popular. Foursquare has seen corporations jumping on board and teaming up with them to offer different badges and even some specials. They recently even had the NBA team up with them for the NBA Finals. One thing I always stand by when it comes to tech and social media is that competition is good, it breeds competitiveness and innovation. Gowalla is just that for foursquare. They are a similar type of location based social media outlet that users can check in and earn various things. For awhile now they have been on iPad, iPhone, Android and even WebOS. Starting today, BlackBerry users don’t have to feel left out anymore. They have released their BlackBerry application in beta stage for the masses to use and abuse. If you haven’t jumped on board with Gowalla, or you have but have been waiting for a BlackBerry version download and install it today.
(Side note: I keep getting prompted to download an update, yet the version numbers are identical. Is anyone else seeing this?)
