Eventful Adds Location Based Services

San Diego-based Eventful has rolled out a mobile version of the firm's services, saying this week that it has released a widget which will allow users to discover events near them. The Eventful widget runs on the WHERE Mobile GPS platform, and uses GPS information to locate nearby events, maps, and directions to those events. The GPS capability comes from uLocate Communications, which also powers LBS capabilities in Helio's Buddy Beacon and MapQuests's Find Me applications.
