Accessibility Comments: 

The 4.1update (May 2011) adds Voice Recognition to input search terms (category, or name of business) into the text box. Flick right past the "Find" text box to the "Microphone" button and double tap. You'll hear the app say "listening". Speak your search phrase and pause. The app will say "done listening" and display your results. If there is a problem with the voice recognition, you'll get a message "No results. There was an error processing your speech, please try again." with button options to "Cancel" or "Try again." The results will show up, just as though you had typed them in. The voice recognition is powered by the same Nuance engine used by Dragon Dictation.

Other Comments: 

Although this app appeared in the U.S. App Store and was specifically tested for that country, the developer (Avantar LLC) also makes White & Yellow Pages Apps for other countries (e.g. New Zealand and Australia) Avantar appears to have added turn-by-turn directions to its suite of other apps, as well.
