Time Out, the listings magazine, is launching a free mobile service to offer local information about entertainment in London. Time Out Mobile will also offer a search facility to help users find taxi services and the nearest cash point.
The service, which will launch on Vodafone, is the first time that Time Out has offered information specifically designed for mobile. Users can access information about bars, restaurants, clubs, gigs and theatre as well as reviews and recommended venues and events.
Mobile Commerce, the search and content provider, has developed the site for Time Out. It has already worked with the magazine brand to develop its Time Out Worldwide City Guides for mobiles.
Mobile Commerce chief executive Steve Page says: “This package really does illustrate the way in which the mobile phone continues to become ever more important in daily life.”
