Usefulness & Ease of Use:
YP Yellow Pages comes in handy not only for locating businesses but for that deal diva in us. I find their comprehensive package of everything about a sought out business or type to be far superior to using say Google Maps or Places on Android.
For my personal use I would load up the app more if it had check-ins; which I’ve been assured is coming soon. The reason I mention it is because offering check-ins holds my engagement as a user even beyond the apps core experiences. Therefore it would be a source to find a business and/or deal coupon, hand off to navigating to the business, then return to check-in plus incentivize my efforts. 😉
I’ve been given the liberty of personal walk through and planned features of this app by YP Lead Android product developer. So bravo on excellent use of screen real estate, features, customization of categories, and gesture usage in this app. It has excellent user experience and user interface design; something of which I see many Android apps adopting.
