Launches Local Business Search App has launched a local business search app for iPhone users, enabling them to access the company’s database of over 1.8m UK business listings. As well as listing local business details, the free app allows users to read reviews from other customers and leave their own ratings and reviews in real-time.

Businesses can upload additional information such as pictures, promotional offers and a more detailed description of the products or services they offer via for inclusion in the results returned by the app.

“Mobile users want quick, easy and accurate search results when they are looking for a local business whilst on the move,” explains marketing director, Jill Pringle.  We have included ‘one-touch’ search from the homepage, meaning that people can find the most popular types of businesses in an instant using the in-built GPS functionality. Our focus is to ensure our customers gain the local, targeted exposure they need, and to give users relevant search results across a wide range of media.”

The app can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store.
