Dynamic Content
Local Directories – Local Search allows you real-time access to listings, ads and categories within any of our directories. Information is updated daily, so you know the listings supplied to your mobile device are always up to date!

This app contains all the listing information from both the Business Directory and Residential Directory sections of our printed phone directories across all of the regions we cover. All mobile content is driven from the same data that's published in our online business and residential directories on our website. It truly is your best local search!

Within the Local Directories - Local Search App, all our directories are presented in a list-view format. This provides a simple text-based interface and "Click-to-Call" functionality that allows mobile phone users an easy way to place calls directly from advertisers’ listings. Mobile broadband customers using Internet web browsers will enjoy the added benefits of an improved graphical interface along with easily accessible ads, coupons, maps and driving directions.

Speech Recognition
Local Directories - Local Search offers speech recognition to make finding a listing fast and easy. Entering a simple search term like "Plumbing Contractors" using the standard iPhone touch interface can take well over 15 keystrokes. With speech recognition, you can simply push a button and speak your search query – thus greatly reducing the number of steps required to find a local business.

QR Code Reader / Scanner
Local Search now scans both QR codes and barcodes! With a single click using your Smartphone or tablet camera you will be redirected to profile pages, webpage links, books review, multimedia and calendar online information. QR Codes generated by Local Directories will load automatically within the app, optimizing your results!

    I've used this app on a number of occasions. Worked well for me on my last fone but since updating my fone, it doesn't work at all. The app refuses to progress further than the opening map. Please fix as I find this app useful. :-)
