Location Fail

When I flew out to the UK on Friday I made the decision that I was gonna give Gowalla a full go whilst over here, as it had more spots & users compared to the relatively slow uptake in Cape Town. But to be honest, I just can’t get into it…

For one, it’s quite a mission to check in at every place; not in terms of the process, but more in remembering to do so. And secondly, I don’t see the value thereof for either myself or my followers.

Gowalla has an amazing interface and I can’t (and won’t) knock them in any way, but the service just doesn’t seem to be able to entrench it into my natural ways (as to some extent Twitter has done).

Anyone else feel this way?
