A Canadian First – Blackberry Application Featuring People Search

Canada 411 - Canadian People Search

Released over this past weekend was a very cool blackberry application from Yellow Pages Group. The application can be downloaded directly to your blackberry at InstallYP.ca/Blackberry (http://installyp.ca/blackberry) – please note that this link is blackberry specific, if you try to access through a web browser it will tell you that your devise is not supported.

This application features the leading directory services in Canada, YellowPages – for finding a business, Canada411 for finding a person, and a blended Reverse Lookup for finding both people and businesses.

Compatible with the newest blackberries and backward compatible to previous generations, this application automatically detects your device and installs the features that are compatible. For example, GPS search is enabled on devices with GPS, non GPS blackberries won’t see this option.

Lastly, the application auto detects your language settings and is available in French and English – pretty cool stuff.

Some of the high-level features include:

– tab between Business, People and Reverse Lookup
– save listing information through MyFavs or directly to your blackberry address book or both
– people search with integrated find businesses nearby (surprise your date with flowers on the way)
– GPS search (for devices where this is enabled)
– direct connect to Voice Search (no charge usage) if you are on the go

Application is completely free to download and overall is pretty cool and puts the most up to date Business and People information in Canada at your fingertips.
