A wealth of information awaits in YPmobile, and the range of stuff you can search for within the app may well make it a must-have in your smartphone library. Leveraging the power of YellowPages.com, YPmobile’s local search feature can find everything from restaurants and bars to shopping malls and all kinds of other businesses, as well as events for you to check out when you’re looking for something to do. It’s a surprisingly robust and useful app, helping you find just about anything in your area and save money while you’re doing it.
YPmobile combines good ideas you’ve probably seen in a number of other location-based business apps into one resource. You can find businesses by a number of criteria, see user reviews and get listing information, or post reviews and ratings of your own. The app is particularly geared to help you save money at the pump—by showing nearby gas prices—but it also allows you to search for and share local shopping deals and coupons. Additionally, YPmobile enables you to sign up for “Deal of the Day” from YellowPages.com. And thanks to YPmobiles’s partnership with Zvents, you can even see what events are happening near you.
Businesses can be quickly searched by typing, speaking or browsing through popular categories. Find an interesting restaurant but not sure of the menu? YPmobile now lets you check out the menus of over 300,000 local eateries. But what about the prices? You can filter your results by pricing as well as by ambiance and cuisine. YPmobile has all the convenient features we want and need, so finding anyplace is easy.
