Time Out feature makes its way to Ovi Maps
Continuing to branch out and become more refined in order to keep up and possibly ahead of its competitors, Ovi Maps now provide users with the Time Out feature than will allow them to look up event listings and city guides directly on their handsets. After seeing Expedia hotel booking and Qype become integrated with Ovi Maps, Time Out is the latest to join the fun by allowing users to view local events (such as a concert) and find additional information regarding it. Now the key thing to remember about Time Out is that it currently only covers major cities like Chicago, Kuala Lumpur, Lisbon, London, New York, Singapore, and Sydney. Essentially you'll be able to scope out local events which will have a Time Out rating, description about the event, and sometimes reviews – it's divided up into different categories so you can search for something specfically. One drawback seen by it is that it only pulls stuff based on your exact location, but doesn't allow you to view all listings in a particular city – so that means you'd have to venture closer to the venue before it pops up in Time Out. Although there are some limitations seen by it, there is no arguing that its arrival continually shows how Ovi Maps is evolving to encapsulate the end user.
