Whether you’re looking for your favorite restaurant or trying to find that unfamiliar number that just called your phone, WhitePages Mobile puts all the convenience of WhitePages.com into a useful and free mobile application.

The WhitePages Mobile app allows you to search for a specific name or under generic terms like “pizza” or “movie theater” to find the nearest location from your current spot, which WhitePages Mobile also tracks.  And if you have friends who are looking to join, just email them the destination. Up comes a Google map that shows you and your friends the quickest route to get there.

I found this feature to be especially handy when trying to direct friends to one location without having to stay on the phone and hassle with turn-by-turn directions. 

The app has features that include People Search, Business Search, Reverse Phone Lookup and Recent Results, all of which are extremely navigable. And if you happen to receive a call while you’re searching or you have to navigate away from the page, the app picks up where you left off when you return.

When you find the listing of your choice, all you need to do is click to call instead of trying to find a piece of scratch paper to scrawl the phone number on.You also can save any number into your contacts, which will make those late-night pizza runs that much more attainable.
