Whitepages gives me the ability to search for people and businesses just like I would with a phone book.  But, unlike a phone book, I also get a Reverse Directory Lookup.  Did I mention that this is free?
Finally, the integration between desktop and phone is very nicely done with an app called Evernote.  Evernote allows you to easily capture information in any environment using whatever device or platform you find most convenient, and makes this information accessible and searchable at any time, from anywhere.
There are more business apps available, but these five will allow you to move much closer into the realm of true mobility as a real estate agent and at pricing that is truly real estate agent friendly.  I am convinced that the iPhone is a serious business tool that will only get better as new apps are released   What do you think?

Once upon a time, whenever a consumer needed to find a local restaurant, dry cleaner, plumber, TV repairman, florist or pretty much anything, they lugged out the big yellow book. The Yellow Pages concept became so popular that as business began to shift online in recent years, so did the yellow pages solutions. Just as consumers naturally turned to the big yellow book in print, they turned to the online version. One of the things consumers often found frustrating about the Yellow Pages was its limited number of categories.
Businesses, on the other hand, found the concept of search engines to be quite a bit more daunting than the much simpler Yellow Pages.
While getting a high ranking on Google for category keywords may be difficult, it is important to update a business’ online platform.
Having a social media presence across Google+, Facebook or Yelp is crucial for today’s local businesses, as customers want to feel connected and valued. The key to getting the most from these online services is providing good products, value and customer service. After a disappointing Yellow Pages iPhone app, Sensis is having another shot with a White Pages app. Regular readers might remember that I didn't think much of the Yellow Pages iPhone app from Sensis (an arm of Telstra) when it was released in August.
If you just want to look up a phone number or address, the advantage of using the White iPhone app rather than Safari is that the app knows (roughly) your current location.
Like the Yellow Pages app when it first launched, the White Pages app is very hit and miss when it comes to pinpointing your location. I live in a slight valley and when I drove up the street Whereis managed to get within about 50 metres, although this still sometimes put me in the next street. One difference between the White and Yellow Pages apps is that the White Pages app doesn't offer to display search results on a map, or tell me the distance to each location. If I search for Newsagency in the Yellow Pages app, it gives me 15 results in order of their distance from my current location, even though it claims I'm in the next suburb. The White Pages app is certainly a handy addition to your iPhone, assuming you only want to use it as a traditional phone book and not rely too much on the location-based aspects. Comments that are offensive, defamatory, unsuitable or that breach any aspects of the terms and conditions will be deleted.

When the new one arrived, I used to throw the old ones, complete with plastic packaging, into the dustbin. My thoughts turned to the festering telephone directories in the corner of the room and I found myself wondering what the options were. Most areas in the UK have readily available recycling containers for paper and newspapers doted around and many areas have kerbside collections of paper. Yellow pages are more tricky fellas to dispose of as the UK has different facilities depending on area. You can put old Yellow Pages to good use by donating them to participating schools for the Yellow Woods Challenge. Some councils accept Yellow Pages at the kerbside, some have recycling facilities at the local civic amenities site (ours go in with cardboard at our local site). Finding the information for your area can be tricky, but there is a database on the yellow Pages site, although I’m not sure how up to date it is.
Like the BT telephone book I decided that cancelling the Yellow pages was the way forward for us.


The challenge with these directories is that there appears to be no centralised opt-out system like there is for junk mail.
There is currently an online petition to call for an opt out system for all directories in the UK. I have just ent BT an email to cancel our phonebook as it is still sat here in its platic wrap and last times we had to unwrap to put in the recycling. As I said on another posting, despite having cancelled both the yellow and white pages, they were both delivered!
My anger at the Yellow pages resulted in me being given the hat of local Community Champion with a mission to help neighbours recycle rather than bin redundant Yellow Pages. Last week the White pages was squeezed through my letter box and luckily we were in to witness it.
Poppy, although frustrating for you, it’s good when something like this moves us towards positive action.
Your training course is evidently top notch – we’ll have to send more people to you! Have just sent an email to Thomson Directories ([email protected]) to cancel future deliveries. I had a letter from Thomson last week, which says they have been informed that I don’t wish to receive their directory, with a big sticker to put on the door to remind the deliverers when they come round. The opt out for stopping directories on the web no longer exists but this is the advice from the Essex CC web page.
By not receiving telephone directories, you can help to save a vast amount of paper every year. Simply Being Mum: Found this post while trying to find a pasta brand that wraps in recyclable plastic!
Jerry earned his GRI early in his real estate career and then went on to earn his CRS and CRB setting the tone for a career-long focus on the importance of continuing education.
Known as the Yellow Pages, the big yellow book provided a complete listing, by category, of all of the businesses in the consumer’s local area. Sometimes it was difficult to determine in exactly what category to search for a particular product or service, whereas with Google and other search engines, they could simply type in a few words and be taken to the right place.
Once this is taken care of, it’s possible to augment this presence by purchasing advertising. Particularly, small businesses can gain more valuable (and free) advertising through social media than through any paid source. While it might be cost-effective for some types of businesses, your primary focus should be on your online presence and customer interactions if you want to build long-term customer relationships. The White Pages app seems more practical because, unlike the Yellow Pages, the residential phone book isn't integrated into Google Maps. You can also view recent searches and save favourites or add them directly to the address book on your iPhone. At least when I manually type in the correct address I get a result - back in August the Whereis mobile site would crash whenever I tried this. I guess it's because it assumes you're looking for a specific house, not the nearest x, y or z.
At least the results are in the right order according to distance, unlike when it first launched when it sometimes presented them in a random order.
The Yellow Pages app has certainly improved since August, but it still pales in comparison to Google Maps. Once you’ve clicked through to your specific result though, the White Pages app provides you with a map. Helps explain why the category search for “newsagencies” in White Pages delivers a different result.
And even when they can afford one, rural residents often cannot get good Internet service because companies like AT&T have stopped investing in DSL expansion. They’re not proposing to do away with the Yellow Pages because they make money there. For the past few years they have sat unloved and unwanted in the corner of the office until the new one has come along to replace it.
I certainly would not have one delivered through choice – they are a totally wasted resource in this house. The Yellow woods challenge is run by the Woodlands Trust and local authorities across the UK.
In other areas the county council will take them back if you take them to their offices and in some areas Community Champions volunteer to be a drop off point for Yellow Pages.


However, a friend of mine gave me a telephone number to stop them completely which is 0800 671 444.
75,000 of tonnes of phonebooks are produced every year and many never make it out of the plastic before going straight back into the landfill. Is it easy to recycle your Yellow pages or how have you got on with opting out of receiving them – has it worked for you? How many times have you heard that or said…WEEE (electronic goods) Have you ever wondered what that symbol of a crossed out wheelie bin is on packaging…Talk Have you got a great idea about reducing waste? After being caught in the Boscastle floods in 2004, our family begun a journey to respect and promote the importance of Earth's fragile ecosystem, that focussed on reducing waste. Responding my crys of woe, junior grabbed the offending book and ran dwon the road to the departing deliverer to give it back! The school collections for yellow pages are a good way to use them up, but stopping at source is better.
You’ve provided a wonderful service to your local community and the environment by being a Champion. I wrote to congratulate him and he was concerned that the opt out people would go into their office on Monday morning to see 1000 new opt out mails LOL! Looked out of the bedroom window this morning and I see yellow dotted around everywhere I look! Some companies seem to absorb me constantly returning things to them – BT is one of the worst offenders AND they keep increasing their prices. Along the way, Jerry has earned three Microsoft certifications, MCP, MCP+I and MCSE, as well as one from Cisco, CCNA. Customer review sites such as Yelp can make or break a business, so when a Yelp page is managed carefully, it can be invaluable to a local business.
It's very handy for looking up the phone number or address of your mate John Smith, especially if you're near his house, or else John Smith Newsagency. Previously the Yellow Pages app would fill in the suburb it thought you were in, but now the Yellow and White pages apps have a stab at the street name and number as well.
At the bottom of the list is a Map These Results option, which seems accurate but isn't very useful because it's a static Whereis map rather than an interactive Google Map. Thankfully the iPhone's copy and paste features work within the White and Yellow Pages apps, so you can let you fingers do the walking and then paste the results into Google Maps so Google can do the heavy lifting.
Gadget guru Adam Turner embraces the way of the road warrior, hitting the open highway in search of all things mobile.

I saw a copy on a doorstep and finally remembered to look it up to see if they have anything to say about it.
Rounding out his list of technology certifications are two from COMPTIA, an A+ and a Network+, as well as the ePRO from NAR. Of course if falls apart when you click Get Directions, because Sensis' Whereis online mapping service just isn't as user-friendly as Google Maps. Unfortunately they both put me about 300 metres away in the next suburb, sometimes much further. The application is convinced I'm in the next suburb and is listing results accordingly, while the Yellow Pages app seem smart enough to use my GPS location rather than the name of suburb it thinks I'm in.

I've noticed Google Maps tends to say I'm over that way for a few seconds until it gets a better lock on my location, at which point it can even tell if I'm at the front or back of the house.
Better yet, the White Pages data needs to be added to Google Maps - but Sensis is unlikely to play ball on that one.
