WhitePages Launches Next Generation of Flagship Android App

Full Redesign of Leading App for Finding People and Businesses Adds Call Identification, User Listing Controls and Unlimited Phone Lookup

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Nov 21, 2013) - WhitePages, the leading provider of contact information for people and businesses in the U.S., today announced a complete redesign of its popular WhitePages Android application. The highly rated app offers consumers one-tap access to contact information for more than 200 million adults and 30 million businesses, and now provides consumers with the ability to update and manage their personal listing. The updated app includes a completely revamped UI, spam score for suspicious numbers to help callers avoid unwanted calls and texts and an unlimited subscription feature that offers consumers the option to look up unknown numbers from the WhitePages directory.

"We are always striving to improve our flagship WhitePages products to ensure that we provide the best people and business search experience for our millions of users," said Sanam Mehta, Product Manager, WhitePages. "While we have seen phenomenal growth across all of our mobile apps, the WhitePages Android app continues to receive the highest praise from our users for its innovative features. We believe our users will love this new updated experience including the ability to identify spam phone numbers and efficiently look up unknown callers."

New features of the WhitePages app for Android, released today, include:

  • UI refresh - New design enables easy access to your favorite searches and one-tap access to popular business categories; either search for a business around you or in a location that you plan on visiting in the future.
  • Reverse phone look up - The app now offers a subscription plan for unlimited reverse phone lookups at one low monthly cost, providing an even better value for users who receive a large number of unknown or unsolicited calls.
  • Spam score - WhitePages provides a variety of tools for consumers to help avoid spam calls and monitors searches over time to determine if a particular number is generating spam activity. The new WhitePages Android app includes spam scores for suspicious phone numbers, and adds the ability for users to leave comments about spam activity for a particular phone number. User comments are also factored into a phone number's overall spam score.

Since its launch, the WhitePages app has been the leading people and business search app, and consistently ranked in the top 10 in Google's Travel and Local Search category with a 4.5 star rating from users.
