Since we launched our first ever mobile app in the summer of 2008, we’ve worked tirelessly to create an amazing experience for you to find people and businesses while away from a desktop.
We’re rewarded every day with our 4+ star ratings, reviews like Alvin T’s “This App is truly awesome, I love it!!!!”, and our flagship iPhone app is consistently a Top 10 in Reference.
We’ve come a long way since our first app. We’ve put out a lot of updates for that flagship app over the years, including identifying mobile numbers, Store Locator, and an iPad version. But today is the day we get to announce the biggest update to the acclaimed app: Version 2.0!
This new app keeps all of your favorite features (People, Business, Store Locator, Reverse Phone), but we’ve added several brand new, impressively useful, features.
· Nearby People is one of our most exciting features. This lets you discover people nearby where you are, to get in touch with your neighbors, add them to your address book and so much more. It’s one of the most useful features I’ve come across in a long time.
· Nearby Stores gives you the ability to find great businesses near anything — your friend’s house, where you are, or where you’re going – with top categories that put most stores a tap or two away.
· Sharing is a new feature that our developers worked hard to make insanely convenient, giving you the ability to share any meeting place or destination via Facebook, Twitter, email or text. Choose your friends and post directly to their wall or tag them with a tweet, all without leaving the WhitePages app. This a huge time saver – it doesn’t matter how you share it, or what the recipient uses, they’ll be able to see it!
· Reverse Address has been the #1 request from our iPhone and iPad users to date, and it’s now available in V2! We just added a boat load of new data, so we’ve gone ahead and added the ability to do reverse address lookups while out and about.
We’ve highlighted the features in the video below.
