Today, I am excited to introduce the new WhitePages mobile site! The new site, which is live and available on your phone, has a new easy-to-use design for touch screen phones and many usability improvements that take advantage of today’s smart phone capabilities. Try it out today by visiting m.whitepages.com on your phone’s browser.
With all of the attention the growth of our Top 10 iPhone and Android apps have recieved, many of you may not know that WhitePages has a top 50 mobile website according to Comscore. A large percentage of our mobile web users surprisingly have smart phones. Surprising, considering that the industry would have us believe that everyone has moved on to apps, as Kevin Nakao mentions in his latest mobile web post on Mashable. We know that at times, it is just as convenient for you to use the mobile web as it is to find and download an app. That is why our teams have been hard at work to give you options — Mobile Web and Apps.
