Yellow Pages Group Launches iPad App
June 17, 2010 | Contributed by: Stephanie Hobbs
As Apple’s iPad continues to gain popularity worldwide, Canada’s Yellow Pages Group announced this week that it is the latest Yellow Pages company to introduce a free iPad app. Previously, Yellowbook, Avantar, and Yellow Magic introduced new apps designed for the tablet device.
YPG’s app—which comes on the heels of the company’s announcement in May that its mobile apps have attracted one million downloads—features business and residential search, reverse phone look-up, local proximity-based search and a “favorites” tool. Additionally, users can view video clips on participating merchants’ pages and share listing results with others via e-mail or text message.
Greg Sterling at Screenwerk also notes that the app links to other YPG properties including Urbanizer, Restuarantica and RedFlagDeals.com.
