Zingy MovieGoer gets LBS

Jan 10 2006 - 10:49 AM ET | Backpage, Sprint Nextel

Zingy yesterday announced that its MovieGoer application has gotten location-based services so that users don't have to type out their current location. Instead, the phone recognizes where they are and finds the nearest theaters:

Instead of having to manually key in a zip code or address, mobile users' exact locations are determined using cell sector technology. Sprint customers simply opt-in to select the MovieGoer "Locate Me" feature and the service automatically identifies their locations to provide the nearest theaters, movie times and information.

The feature is now available if you're a Sprint customer.
