Gowalla app for WP7 in development

The makers of mobile-centric check-in service and social network Gowalla have confirmed that a dedicated app for Windows Phone 7 is in development. Gowalla rep Lora L. Abe stated yesterday on the Gowalla GetSatisfaction page

Hey everyone– just wanted to let you know that we’ve begun working on a solution for WP7. There isn’t a set date for release, but we do have something in development! (:

Currently, there is no Gowalla support for WP7, either in the form of the dedicated app or for the m.gowalla.com site, which only officially supports iOS and Android. Gowalla, a service similar to FourSquare whose principal draw is its location-based check-in, claimed to have 600,000 users this December.

Thanks to Dave Walker for the tip.
