i prefer foursquare over gowalla, but have noticed i use it less and less as time goes on.
seems alot of people just checkin anywhere they are close to just to do it...almost like a popularity contest. i got over that in high school. smh.

I primarily use Gowalla. I like the fact that it's not a contest because then I don't feel like a loser for never winning :P
However! I use Foursquare for ONE place... the single place I'm a mayor of. It's a coffee shop down the street from my office

I am also always forgetting to check in places. I like Foursquare because of its ease of use but really... a contest about how many places I go to? Kind of boring. Now if I were 20 and back in college and in to the whole getting drunk scene, then sure. It would be fun to see who can bar-hop the most. God knows, the more badges you have and the more mayorships, the better your life will turn out in the future ::jab::
I just downloaded Gowalla, basically because of Chad. So far i'm liking it. I have it on both the iPad and iPhone and have not checked in a single place yet because it does have a learning curve I think. I agree with llofte about the feeling like a loser, but yet... she beat me bad at Words with Friends so not sure why she is using the "loser-card" lol

Currently I don't use either of these, however if I were to use one I think it would be Gowalla. I'm looking at their trips now and it seems like a novel way to explore new areas. It looks like as of right now the trips are limited but I think as the network grows they will hopefully expand this area.
