Now you can let your fingers do the walking in a whole new way. Long the master of local, YellowPages.com has unveiled another effort to dominate local search—this time on your phones. With its new downloadable local mobile search apps, you can find the best restaurants, stores and other businesses near you.
This is delivered through a partnership with AT&T—the apps are available for not only the iPhone but 20 other AT&T devices. It looks like you may be out of luck unless you have an AT&T phone. Of course, since AT&T owns YellowPages.com, this isn’t entirely surprising.
I don’t quite get this part of the release, though:
iPhone users can now easily find local businesses and services by going to www.yellowpages.com on their Safari browser and inputting a search term or category and location.
