The app can be downloaded for free from iTunes or the iPhone App Store (look in the “Reference” category).
WhitePages Mobile puts the WhitePages online directory of more than 180 million people in the hands of iPhone users, providing a fast and easy way to connect with friends, search nearby, get maps and directions, identify callers and more. The application makes mobile search remarkably easy, using either the iPhone’s GPS capabilities to automatically detect current location or smart text entry to recognize most search cities after typing one or two characters.
Some of the great features we’re most excited about:
√ When you look up listings, you can save them to your iPhone Contacts.
Keep all your friends and colleagues’ info up to date using WhitePages – create a new contact entry or update an old one.
√ Pull up your latest search results even when the phone is offline (such as on an airplane or in an elevator).
When you view a search result, it’s automatically saved on your phone in Recent Results.
√ Identify who just called you with Reverse Phone lookup
Protect your privacy and only talk to who you want to.
√ Automatically fill in search fields and get directions using your current location
Make comprehensive searches with only a few screen taps.
WhitePages Mobile represents the first product of the recent Snapvine acquisition. By combining the mobile application expertise of the Snapvine team with the people-search functionality and data available through the WhitePages API, the team comprised of WhitePages and former Snapvine employees was able to move quickly from concept to launch in a matter of weeks.
