GUMBAND, a new information platform developed by DeepLocal, allows users to send short text messages to a
local phone number to find nearby events or activities as well as directions by car, or bus to get from where you are to where you want to be. GUMBAND can also highlight historic sites and local landmarks that are often left out of the public eye.
