Dial Directions Adds Event Coverage

dialdirections.jpgDial Directions, a mobile directions service, has expanded its national coverage and now supports directions to current events, TechCrunch reports.

For those unfamiliar with the service, here’s how it works: dial 347-328-4667 (the word “directions”) and say where you are and want to go. The service then reads directions off to you on the phone.

With the announcement, Dial Directions now works in San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Denver, Sacramento, San Diego, and DC.

“The other announcement, event directions, …is now opened up to self-service. Now anyone can list a keyword and address for an event with Dial Directions. Attendees can get directions to an event by calling and asking for the event by title.”
