Helio is partnering with Buzzd to provide real-time entertainment information about bars, clubs and restaurants based on Helio members’ locations.
The service is accessible on all Helio devices via the MVNO’s WAP deck. Members of the Buzzd community give reviews and ratings of events or venues and share them with friends. All U.S. major cities are covered, according to a press release.
The Buzzd service also allows subscribers to find, connect with and send messages to friends via SMS and messaging features.
Events and venues are aggregated through partnerships with Flavorpill, TimeOut New York and CitySearch. User-generated feedback for real-time activity about venues and events is layered at the top of event listings throughout the platform.
Users register for the service by clicking the “Buzzd” link from the Helio deck or texting “join” to 96321.
