Gowalla is one of the most beautiful apps on any platform (it even looks good on Android), and the latest update adds some thrilling new features, the biggest of which are guides to cities. These guides are based partially on user reviews, which means that they’re essentially handbooks to the best of a city. The guides have launched in 60 locations (Gowalla says “cities”, but there are theme parks and national parks as well). Unfortunately, Calgary isn’t one of the launch locations, so I get to look at the beautifully rendered artwork instead.
