Helio inks partnership with Buzzd to offer location-based information on entertainment
Helio announced their partnership with Buzzd. Accessible on all Helio devices via the carrierâ€™s WAP deck, Buzzd delivers editorially-driven 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 U.S.
Buzzd is more than just local entertainment listings and reviews, as it allows its subscribers to instantly find, connect with and message friends with easy to use 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 the mobile platform. Events and venues are aggregated first through partnerships with Flavorpill, TimeOut New York, and CitySearch. User-generated feedback for â€˜real-timeâ€™ activity about venues and events is also layered at the top of event listings throughout the platform.
One of the key features of Buzzd is the ability to find real-time activity across any event in the United States including the rating of specific events and what the â€œsceneâ€ is actually like at the particular location. Users can register for the service immediately by clicking the â€œBuzzdâ€ link from the Helio deck, or texting â€˜joinâ€™ to 96321.
