My family recently moved to a larger house to accommodate our growing family. While we stayed in the same city, we ended up moving to an area I’m not very familiar with.
I needed to know where the closest gas station is, grocery store and even more importantly… the location of the closest coffee shop.
Perfect timing to try out the brand new version of the Yellow Pages app!
The YP app, available on Android and Apple, allows you to find local businesses and services. The listings include all the information you could want when searching for products and services including hours of operation, payment methods, user reviews, applicable deals and more.
The YP app has been designed to help you make smart decisions and to improve your overall shopping experience. You can also share your discoveries, like that amazing new Sushi restaurant, with your friends on social networks and through text messages and email.
The Yellow Pages app can even help you save money on gas with the map-integrated feature that shows you where to find the cheapest gas close to you! This feature has been made even easier to use in the updated app with improvements to the search function within the app.
I love that while looking for the products and services around my new house I was able to easily run a location based search using GPS. You can also put in specific location if you want to find a business in another city.
The fact that I was given all the details I could want, including hours of operation really sold me on making the new YP app a sticky on my home page.
The deals included in the listings are also a winning feature for me. While I don’t necessarily need a deal when I want to purchase something, it doesn’t hurt to take advantage of them when you can get them! Who doesn’t love a good deal?
The first business I needed information on though was for dinner on our first night in our new home. I was able to quickly open up the app on my smartphone and find local options. I ended up going with a Vietnamese restaurant located just around the corner based on the reviews found within the app and was given all the pertinent information including directions and hours of operation! In no time we were sitting together among unpacked boxes eating a hot, delicious take-out meal.
The YP app has been really indispensable in helping us adjust to our new surroundings, and I’m sure it will be continued to be used long after we have made our neighbourhood home.
