Gowalla Shares Check-Ins With Facebook and Foursquare

No comments:



Gowalla has updated their application for the iPhone with the ability to share checkings with Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare and Tumblr.

Like a passport on your phone, Gowalla is an amazing new and social way to record your memories, keep up with your friends, share your favorite places and discover the the world around you. Find out where your friends are, then check in, share a comment or post a photo to let them know what you're up to.

Check in when you're on the coffeeshop, at the game, on vacation or simply enjoying the park down the street. With Gowalla, it's never been more fun to share and discover the world around you. Go with us!

What's New In This Version:
Gowalla 3 has been re-imagined from the ground up!

THINGS WE MADE NEW
+ New, Faster Check In: With a single tap, Gowalla intelligently predicts which spot you're at based on your history. Start typing a message while your phone is locating you.
+ Share your check-ins with Facebook Places, Twitter, Foursquare and Tumblr.
+ Connect your Facebook and Foursquare accounts to see what all your friends are up to in one place!
+ Notes: Leave a personal message—anything from "Don't forget the bottle of wine" to "The queso will make you glad to be alive"—for a friend. They'll receive it the next time they check in at that location.
+ Add and browse Highlights for your city, like Best Cup, Family Night and My Happy Place.
+ Bookmark a spot to remember nearby favorites and faraway dreams.
+ Flag a Spot to report problems or closed locations while you're on the go.
+ All-new drop-dead gorgeous design. We've re-imagined Gowalla and made it more beautiful and easy to use than ever.


THINGS WE MADE BETTER
+ Upload a photo from your Photo Library
+ Creating a Spot is easier and more accurate, with smart searching for possible duplicates.
+ Browsing friends is much improved, including the ability to search any friends list.

Take it for a spin, tell your friends, and let us know what you think on Twitter (@gowalla).

You can download Gowalla from the App Store for free.

Apple and Publishers Still Don't See Eye to Eye on iTunes Subscriptions

No comments:



Apple and magazine publishers still don't see eye to eye on iTunes subscriptions, according to a MediaMemo report.

Publishers want the ability to sell the subscriptions themselves, or at least the opportunity to hang on to subscribers’ personal data. And Steve Jobs won't let them.

Sources say Apple is offering:
● The ability to sell app subscriptions through iTunes.
● 70 percent of the revenue from each sale.
● The ability to offer an opt-in form for subscribers that would ask them for a limited amount of information: Name, mailing address, email address.

Apple has reportedly had their offer on the table for months but none of the big publishers are interested in giving Apple 30% and not receiving the credit card data for their customers. That information is valuable to them for marketing and bundles.

Publisher are now looking with hope towards the influx of Android tablets.
