    Superpages Serves Up BlackBerry Application

    Advertisement



    Superpages.com has launched a mobile version of its local search product, Superpages Mobile for BlackBerry. The application is designed to help mobile users, especially business travelers, find local information easily with a BlackBerry mobile device. For example, users can search for local businesses, map directions, get local movie showtimes, find a person or check the local weather.

    Only the downloadable version of Superpages harnesses the power of the leading Internet Yellow Pages in a format that lives up to the quality of the BlackBerry.

    Get Movie Info Fast
    Search by movie, theatre or genre. See show times, read reviews and connect directly to driving directions from wherever you are.

    Locate a Business
    With millions of businesses available from the Superpages.com database, you're sure to find what you need, when you need it.

    Map Your Way
    With interactive maps and turn by turn directions, you can get where you're going quickly, easily and without the frustration of having to find that piece of paper on which you wrote directions.

    Find a Person
    The People Finder function allows you to find a friend, old neighbor or coworker across town, or across the country.

    Track the Weather
    Don't let the weather ruin your plans - your five day forecast is available whether you will be in town or far away.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Likewise. I have an 8800 and tried it with different browser emulations and still did not work. Maybe it needs to be accessed from a PC.

    So was I. I think we some times get spoiled with all of the OTA downloads. :-)

    Got it. Installs OK. The reverse lookup is nice and quick. Mapping is slow compared to Google Maps and BB Maps, and zooming is a bit painful with this (due to slowness).

    Turn-by-turn directions are interesting: each direction is on a separate screen, and you can scroll forward/back pretty quickly with this. At the end of the trip I had it calculate, there was an option to retrieve the "next page" of directions, but there were no more directions. After I backed out of the screen telling me this, I see: "Uncaught exception: Index - 1 >= 1" . Still clearly a beta, but it's promising. Will be interesting to see how this fares against InfoSpace, Maufait, etc.

    It doesn't list 8300 on the list, did you install 8800 version on 8300?

    Re: Superpages Serves Up BlackBerry Application

    I just downloaded the software and though it does look like a great tool but my searches comes back empty. I see when it attempts to search but still empty. I will delete and try to reload. Maybe it might work. Was wondering if anyone that has the bb 8800 that has the same issue.

    Before I attempted to download the software again, I looked for more info on their website and it appears that charges will incure through you carrier. Though I'm aware of this beta version, charges may apply.

    They all put that since they don't want to be held liable for data charges since not everyone has unlimited data plans.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
