Helio announced the launch of a new nightlife search application. As part of a partnership with Buzzd, a local entertainment service that provides real-time information for bars, clubs and restaurants, Helio members can now search for nightlife information based on their location.
Accessible on all Helio devices via the carrier’s WAP deck, Buzzd delivers event and venue information, along with up-to-the-minute reviews and ratings from friends and other members of the Buzzd community. The entertainment mobile service currently lists events and venues across all major cities in the United States.
More than just local entertainment listings and reviews, Buzzd allows its subscribers to instantly find, connect with and message friends with SMS and messaging features. Users can also browse and search continuously updated event feeds, which include pricing, location and event details as well as the firsthand ratings and reviews posted from the event by other members directly via their mobile phones.
Buzzd also provides a mobile platform for Flavorpill, TimeOut New York and CitySearch. User-generated feedback for real-time activity about venues and events is also layered at the top of event listings throughout the platform.
“Buzzd is the slick new way to find the best local events and venues for the mobile generation,” Anna Lee, senior manager of content services at Helio, said in a statement.
Users can register for the service immediately by clicking the “Buzzd” link from the Helio deck or texting ‘join’ to 96321.
