I wonder how many of you know what's going on in terms of entertainment in your city tonight. You'll probably think you have a pretty good idea but it's actually fairly difficult to get a grip on the multitude of events that are happening every night in a major city unless you buy an evening newspaper, the local 'whats on' guide and then check a few local Internet sites. Wikido is a very flexible  geolocalization-based entertainment search engine that hunts down all the entertainment in your city from countless websites whether it be a concert, a rodeo or sports event. What's more, the Wiki part means that the information can be added to - making it a somewhat more personal and social experience.
WikiDo is a local event search engine where searchers can find out everything that is happening nearby whether it be a live music concert, an art show, musicals, social events, parades and theater shows or local kids activities and general city nightlife. WikiDo automatically gathers data on hundreds of thousands of events from various websites. Users can then manually add and edit them in true Wiki style. Each listing provides a date, time, place and a detailed description of the event and visitors can simply click on a link to access the promoter's website and learn more. Users may also add their own comments and supply tips to any listing or express their opinions about things like the venue. The website doesn't contain any advertising making it faster and easier to use. WikiDo also offers promotors an easy way to promote theirevents and promoters can submit their individual listings or request that WikiDo periodically check their websites.  WikiDo lets users search for events by keyword, location, date or type. After searching, they can narrow the results by clicking on tags like basketball, ballet, jazz, fitness, pop, live shows or with category names like festivals, arts and museum and technology. If there aren't any listings for a specific town or city, the site shows events in neighboring cities as well as providing an estimate of the travel distance for each event.
At the moment, Wikido is in beta mode and only features cities in the US but plans are afoot to take in wider pastures like Europe and Australia. In reality, the app is more like a 21st Century version of the old city entertainment guide. It's a shame but the print industry just doesn't cut it anymore and there is only one way to get the most out of an entertainment guide and that involves taking it online where a single click takes you to the events own web page. WikiDo is ultra easy to use and totally free. When it spreads it's wings past America it could well turn out to be the ultimate entertainment guide.
