Updated YellowPages.ca iPhone App Is Worthy

Share:

One of my favorite iPhone apps is Google Maps. It comes in extremely handy at times when I’m trying to find the location of a business or get directions. However, sometimes I have noticed certain business aren’t listed and I end up launching Safari instead. Getting directions to places? Adding to bookmarks? Calling from the search? Easy.

Recently, the YellowPages.ca iPhone app was updated to include some new features:

– Full access to merchant content, including video and photo montages
– Business, Person and Reverse phone number look-up
– Save to your favourites (My Favs) and/or address book
– Share listing results with others via email/sms
– Local proximity-based search using GPS & Maps
– Direct connect to Voice Search (no charge usage)

What I liked was the built in reverse phone number look up and white listings directory (although I haven’t used the white pages in over a decade). That always comes in handy. Also, by utilizing location services I have better odds of finding businesses nearby, something Google Maps is not the best at doing. Embedded features to call, visit location in Google Maps, add to contacts, and email make it nice and seamless for us iPhone users.

Simply visit here on your iPhone to install the YellowPages.ca app. Anyone using this app at the moment? Thoughts?

    This app can come in handy, although I bet I would still use google or google maps to quickly located a place.

    This is one of my most frequently used apps. It's extremely useful.

  • I still use Google Maps as my first choice too. But if GM fails, this YellowPages app is pretty good.

    I saw the new app and they are great at copying what others seem to be doing…the Canpages iPhone app not only had videos accessible but it also has a voice recognition component, making it far more sophisticated and user friendly than the yp.ca app.
    Also Canpages just released their new MyNearest app which is GPS targeted for common category searches while on the go…
    check it out at the app store!..better yet it is free!

    I tried the Canpages app and didn't like it. I use YP all the time for looking up business phone numbers and locating them.

    It is especially worth it because of the ability to search people through their reverse cell phone lookup listings also.
