For smart phone users location-based gaming is a new fav! Be it Foursquare, Gowalla or MyTown… people are increasingly using these services for various reasons. This morning I just felt like checking out Compete.com to see how Foursquare & Gowalla are doing (I have no hatred towards MyTown, but as it is not on Android yet… I did not feel like including that. By the way, I use FourSquare right now).
As you can see this is just for fun exercise and by no means a scientific experiment. The screen shot suggests that Foursquare really push the gas pedal some time in August 2009 and raced past Gowalla.
Note: This exercise was mainly to satisfy my curiosity.
