If you looking for the contact details of an institution or organization or office or pizza place and cannot find it, one thing which can definitely help you is yellow pages. Yes that yellow coloured book that contains almost every possible detail about places located just near you as well as the ones located in the extreme corners of your city.
But don’t you think, at times, it is not so pleasurable and convenient to hold that bulky book and search for something? Well if you have an iPhone then we can suggest the best alternative for that bulky yellow book.
Yellow Pages official iOS app is here and available on the App Store for free. It is complete in all senses and covers tons of details.
Let us give you small yet useful tour of the app now. After installing the app, enable your location services as it needs to detect your location. Now the main interface consists of five tabs at the bottom: Search, Popular, Movies, Favorite and Settings.
The search page is where you can manually search for what you are looking for. For example the name of the restaurant or bank or anything else.
The Popular page has all the popular search categories. If you are looking for a pizza center, tap on the Pizza and the list of all the pizza corners in your city will appear. Similarly if you are looking for a petrol pump, bank, hospital, tap on the corresponding button.
Under the popular section I tapped on Pizza and here I have a complete list of all the nearby centers.
If you want to know more about a place, tap on its name. On the next page you have its location picture, address and a number of other options. The Phone icon can be used to make a call to that particular place, the next button to the right which is orange in colour can be used to create a contact for this very place and lastly the purple car button is to be used to get turn-by-turn navigation to that place.
To add the place to your favorites list, tap on the Star button present just below the address.
To take a look at the locations of the respective places, tap on the Map button present in the top right corner(refer to the image of the restaurant list)
The next tab is Movies, where you can have a list of all the cinema halls in your city along with the movies they are playing and at what timings. To get the shortest route to the cinema hall, tap on the corresponding car button(the one in purple)
The More section once again has a list of popular places like Pizza centers, restaurants, dentists etc. It also has a Categories section where you have all the categories which are not there under the Popular tab.
