It’s been very busy in the WhitePages Mobile group lately, and this time I think we’ve really outdone ourselves. So, I wanted to give you an update on WhitePages Mobile for BlackBerry – now available in BlackBerry App World.
While we have seen tremendous success and uptake from our iPhone and Android apps as well as the newly relaunched m.WhitePages.com, we wanted to design something new with the power BlackBerry user in mind. It’s our best and most featured-packed application yet.
Instead of listing all the things you can do with the WhitePages Mobile for BlackBerry app, I thought it would be more interesting to start with some tips on a few different ways you can use the app, and why I’ve found it to be an indispensable addition to my mobile app collection.
Who just called?
If you’re like most users, quite a few of your incoming calls or texts aren’t already in your phone contact list. With WhitePages Mobile, you can now look up numbers directly from the BlackBerry phone call log. Just press the Send button to see your call log, then press the menu button. You’ll see an option to search WhitePages, which launches directly to a page with info on the caller. That’s quick!
Even better, we’ve included 600 million hard-to-find mobile and unpublished numbers to provide the best results possible. This works for incoming calls as well as unknown text messages.
Getting your contacts all in one place
It’s fantastically simple to update existing contacts, and quickly create one contact that holds all of the information WhitePages has available – home address and phone, work address and phone, company and job title. Find a listing, select Add to Contacts, then Add to Existing contact. New information will be updated to fill in the details you didn’t know or didn’t have time to type in manually. Then, your information is stored all in one contact for easy access and syncing with whatever contact management system you may use.
Another great new feature is Send/Share. If you don’t want to keep all of your contacts on your phone, this lets you send WhitePages listing info to your desktop in a flash by email or, share the listing with a friend or colleague.
Find people with Company Search
Now it’s easy to search the 40 million+ work listings in the WhitePages database — track down important business contacts and colleagues quickly with just a last name and company name. With only a few keystrokes you can get a phone number, map, and directions to get you to business meetings fast, or locate colleagues who may have moved offices or locations without knowing the city and state.
This is one of the easiest ways to find phone and address info for important business contacts, with no strings attached or new memberships required – if you’ve ever had to friend, follow or fumble through contact lists to get the information you need, we’ve made this easy and straightforward. Plus, you can add to your phone contacts or check your recent search results in WhitePages Mobile to keep the information right at your fingertips, offline or online.
From business trips, sales prospecting and trade conferences to everyday communication, WhitePages Mobile brings a whole new level of convenience and productivity to active BlackBerry users. I hope you’ll enjoy using it as much as I do!
So, take a look at our video to see how it works, then go download it from BlackBerry App World. It’s available now on the Bold, with all of the other major BlackBerry models (Storm, Curve, Pearl) to follow soon. Check out our first review, and feel free to let me know what you think about our new app below.
