I know Foursquare is more popular but please add Gowalla too. I will love you forever. :)

If I'm not mistaken... the big hitch on this end is actually that Gowalla's API doesn't permit third parties to upload photos yet. You Gowalla users on here begging Instagram to add support for Gowalla ought to be beating down their door too!

But yes: Instagram guys-- as soon as Gowalla is ready for you... get ready for them!

Hear, hear.
Gowalla’s last update permits you to upload photos from your library, hence it’s possible to use Instagram-filtered shots. But they are still resized (and cropped), so I really hope the Gowalla and Instagram guys can work together on this...

I think the main task here is to implement the function to check in on gowalla using instagram. Gowalla just lets you post photos when you're checked into a location (as far as I know) and therefore instagram would need to check you into a location on gowalla to let you post that instagram photo... I think...

Since Gowalla now allows posting photos from your Camera Roll instead of requiring all photos to be taken with the in-app camera, at least now you can post your photo in Instagram, then switch over and post the Instagramified photo from your Camera Roll using the Gowalla app. An extra step or two over having an integrated way to do it from Instagram, but it's at least possible to do now.

i think the current problem with this deal is that Instagram uses the Foursquare location database so it might not be 100% compatible with Gowalla's and there might also be some politic behind the deal as well

Gowalla has integrated the Four Square API and now it is possible to check in with both simultaneously from Gowalla. Photos are still resized, though.

Technically speaking, Instagram is accessing the Four Square API, but IG is not dependent upon that for location information. All of the services depend upon third party location information.

Oh come on, people -- it's been seven months and a bunch of Instagram updates since they said they were "talking about it" on here...!? And nothing's happened yet...?!

Can someone from the Instagram team at least be bothered to give us an official update on why this is taking so long and what the problem is...?! This is just lame...

I don't know why Instragram would bother with Gowalla. With the ever increasing uptake in Facebook Places I'm surprised (happily, I might add) that Foursquare is still included.

Surprisingly, not every one is on FB or Foursquare. Gowalla has its own twist on things, and some kind of association between the two would be great from both directions.

Well of course there are some people not on Facebook or Foursquare, but there are some people who still use MySpace only, can you believe it?

I just can't see it being a worth while investment in time to pursue the inclusion in Gowalla, unless it's very quick and they think "Myeh, why not?".

Hi! Just wanted to add my support for instagram + gowalla. I'm hoping that if they are integrated, my current cropping issue will be addressed, and I might also be able to load photos to gowalla in fewer steps. I would use instagram for the majority of my photo uploads if this were to happen.

I love instagram, by the way. You guys are doing a great job! Thank you! :)

It'd be great if any item pickups occur through the instagram app checkin too; they're hard enough to find as it is, without missing them due to 3rd party checkin!
