Finding events on the go

May 10, 2011

Imagine this: you’re in the line to get a drink at your favorite coffee shop, or you’re waiting for a car repair to finish. You’re not sure what you’re going to do this evening, but with the weather warming up you want to see if there’s anything happening outside. How would you find what’s going on while you’re on the road?

We’re making that easier today with the launch of the mobile versions of our Happenings network sites. If you browse to your favorite Happenings event site on a mobile device (iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, or iPod touch), you’ll now see a completely new interface to help you find events quickly and easily.

You can search events happening today, events happening soon, or you can even search for upcoming events that are nearby where you are. Once you’ve chosen an event, you can see times and contact information just as you would on the normal Happenings sites, and you’ll have a full, interactive map to guide you to where you want to go.

It’s easy to see the new site. Just head to any of our Happenings network members (Maine Events, NJHappenings, FLHappenings, PAHappenings, MAHappenings, NYEventCentral, or NHEventCentral) on your mobile device to see the new site. If you’re on an Apple device, be sure to follow the simple directions in the bubble that pops up to put the site right on your home screen for easy access later. Good luck finding the perfect event!
