iTunes link: Yell.com - £Free
With tons of location-aware apps floating around that offer lots of information on your current surroundings it can be easy to forget that some of the more established names still have plenty to offer. Take Yell.com, for example. This app calls on the UK’s Yellow Pages listings to allow you to search for local businesses and service providers in your local area.
The database includes pubs, restaurants, taxis, cash machines and shops. The app can also use your phone’s GPS chip to show you those that are nearest to your current location and there’ an augmented reality view that overlays information about local business on a live feed from your phone’s camera. You can save business details to your iPhone’s contact list and get driving or walking directions to the businesses that you find.
Yell.com is a well-designed application with an easy to use interface that makes it easy to find useful businesses nearby.
