Seems buggy

I’m happy to see the return of Gowalla. I always enjoyed the festive artwork of all the pins. However, the app performance has been pretty spotty. I’m not able to add a custom profile image to my account. It gives an error every time. Notifications stay unread. App crashes when trying to check in.

Hoping performance improves

Great concept, can’t wait for this platform to get more updates eventually!

Been with Street Team since 2021, and it’s been a pleasure helping to build and curate my hometown and places I’ve been. Hoping that Gowalla will get updates again and hopeful that this app will fully take off and compete with the likes of Foursquare/Swarm, and especially Superlocal which has been quite a buggy experience.

Good visual design, terrible UI/UX

The team focused a lot on making this app visually pretty, but the actual interface is not intuitive to use, not activity-centered, and also very buggy. I was looking forward to the promise of what the original was supposed to be, game-like where perhaps your friends could leave you objects at locations, or even a UI where you can actually see where your friends are if they’re not geographically close by. I’m not sure what problems they were solving when they designed this app, this seems like an art project not a utility.
