Fan Reviews
★★★★★ "Where were you all my life? LOL I don't know how I survived without it. Totally a time saver."
★★★★★ "I use it at least once a day and the information is always current. I've never run into a business I get from this app that is not still in business. My life would be much more difficult without this app."

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. The 4.4 update (March 27, 2012). Adds turn-by-turn Voice GPS navigation. See the AppleVis podcast for more details.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

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.

Avantar's free yellow pages app for the Canadian App Store, AirYell, has also just added a similar voice recognition option. I can't test this app since it's not available in the U.S. App Store, but here's the link to the free AirYell app in the Canadian app store:

This is also supposed to be a Universal binary version

Now has a FREE integrated Turn by Turn GPS Navigation! For being FREE this is certainly something to check out. Works rather well for me and very surprise to offer such a quality good navigation. You won't be able to use it to enter addresses as you would in a normal GPF Navigation app but it will get you to places that the White and Yellow Pages has to offer.

I have used this app ever since I got my iphone almost 2 years ago. It has always been accessible & easy to use. Congrats to the developers who, either by accident or on purpose keep their app accessible for us.
