Gowalla MILF, now with OAuth

Today Gowalla Missing Items Location Finder (read introductory post here) was updated to a newer version, supporting OAuth amongst some other minor improvements

Main change is the switch to OAuth. This way one doesn’t have to disable his/her Gowalla Passport Privacy anymore. As a result it is not longer possible to “spy” on an other user/username by entering his/her username.

Implementing OAuth was a walk in the park actually, thanks to the excellent documentation available. However, I still found some little quirks in it, and suggested the Gowalla team to improving the docs in some sections.

Next to the OAuth implementation, some of the screens/copy were revised/simplified, and the ability to automagically detect your location, via your browser landed into Gowalla MILF. One such a screen is the results page.

Newer updates will be spread via the Gowalla MILF Twitter Account. Perhaps a changelog will make it onto the site.

So, what are you waiting for? Go try out the improved Gowalla Missing Items Location Finder!
