Facebook acquired Gowalla last year to boost their own location based check-in and database. Looks like the terms of the deal allow Gowalla co-founder Josh Williams to leave the company to work on newer projects.
And that is exactly what is happening now.
Williams has not revealed what he plans to do next but one thing is clear, we can expect another cool product from him. Gowalla was one of the best looking apps on Android platform!
Gowalla’s largest competitor at that time, Foursquare continues to remain independent. The focus has shifted to help users explore best places to visit nearby rather than check-ins.
