By pointing your mobile web browser to Google.com and allowing Google to access your location, you can then tap into Near Me Now, Google's latest lab for mobile. I tested it last night while hunting for a place to grab a late-night bite with some friends and can tell you that it's easy to use and gave me lots of results even though it showed a message saying that my GPS signal was too weak (in gray writing under the "Explore right here" field). Near Me Now even lets you save locations as favorites to remember later.
I've talked about Dial DIR-ECT-IONS (347-328-4667) and its awesomeness before, but did you know that this handy, free service can be used for your wedding day as well? Just go to the site and click on the event section. Say name of the event (wedding, reception, etc.), as well as your starting address or intersection. On the big day, guests can call DIR-ECT-IONS to get all the info via text message! If you do decide to utilize this great service, be sure to let all your guests know about it on your wedding website!

Our friends at Switched wrote about the company last week and after learning that Dial Dir-ect-ions sends driving directions to your phone via SMS, I decided to test it out. All you have to do is call the number and step through the voice-activated menus, by telling it your starting and destination points.
Right now the service only works in nine cities, but more are on the way. It's a lot easier than pulling over at the gas station.
