They will find friends and places, create unique trips, and then collect stamps in their passport in order to earn rewards. The main screen on the Gowalla app features a custom selected avatar of the user.
The screen also shows the number of stamps and pins collected, the GPS location of the individual, and gives the many tabs to select what sort of activity should occur. They can open their Passport, identify Spots that have been recommended by others, find Trips that they have taken or have planned, and also choose the Friends tab to see where their Facebook and Twitter friends are currently located and what they might be up to.
When visiting any Spot, the user can Check In to get their Passport stamp and they can also see what other Gowalla users happen to be there too. They can even click on the Items tab to see if there are prizes available for those with stamps or pins as well.
There are all kinds of travel oriented apps and social networking sites, but the Gowalla app combines the best features of all of these genres and converts them into a highly usable way to explore a city, find friends, and enjoy unique adventures.
