FREE! SuperPages Mobile officially released for the BlackBerry Storm with more features

In March I posted about the SuperPages application for the Storm being available. SuperPages let me know  that version was just a beta release, and the official version is now available with some cool new features.

The new version includes the SuperGuarantee program where services provided by select advertisers on SuperPages.com and the Verizon Yellow Pages are guaranteed. The new version also allows you to review businesses directly from the application with a fun thumbs up/thumbs down scale.

Some other features:

  • Add Photos: Did your food taste as good as it looked? Take a snap shot before you chow down and upload it when you rate your experience.
  • Find Movies Fast: Search by movie or theater and see show times, read reviews, watch trailers or browse movie posters.
  • Get Directions: Get step-by-step interactive driving directions with an option to have multiple stops on the way to your destination.
  • Locate Local WiFi Hotspots: Find free and pay-for-use WiFi hotspots near you.
  • See your local five-day forecast with current conditions, conduct a reverse lookup of people or businesses and access your My Superpages account to easily see your previous searches.

With SuperPages Mobile you have access to more than 17 million U.S. businesses right on your BlackBerry Storm.

You can download the new version of SuperPages Mobile for your Storm through the BlackBerry App World or visit SuperPages.com. A version for the BlackBerry Pearl and Bold will be available soon.

Full press release after the jump.

Press Release

DALLAS – May 20, 2009 Superpages.com® introduced today its new Superpages MobileSM BlackBerry® Storm™ application where users can rank and review businesses on the spot with a thumbs up/thumbs down scale. Most local search apps only allow users to read reviews but Superpages.com is one of the few to allow users to submit reviews.

The Superpages Mobile app for BlackBerry Storm lets you bring the power of Superpages.com wherever you go, which means access to more than 17 million U.S. businesses with just one touch of the finger.

“Idearc has been quite thoughtful in adapting the online directory to the mobile environment,” said Greg Sterling, Founder, Sterling Market Intelligence and Senior Analyst for Local Mobile Search. “The result is an application and a consumer experience that is very useful but also starts to expand and redefine the yellow pages category.”

Search by keyword or choose popular categories — like automotive, entertainment, restaurants, services and stores – and view as much or as little information as you like. Use the scroll bar at the top of the search results to minimize or expand business information. Go from business name and number to full business address and services to viewing search results on a map.

Plus, Superpages Mobile has the powerful backing of the new SuperGuaranteeSM program where services provided by select advertisers on Superpages.com and the Verizon® Yellow Pages are guaranteed. Find SuperGuarantee businesses from your BlackBerry Storm by looking for the SuperGuarantee shield next to listings.

Other super features:

  • Add Photos: Did your food taste as good as it looked? Take a snap shot before you chow down and upload it when you rate your experience.
  • Find Movies Fast: Search by movie or theater and see show times, read reviews, watch trailers or browse movie posters.
  • Get Directions: Get step-by-step interactive driving directions with an option to have multiple stops on the way to your destination.
  • Locate Local WiFi Hotspots: Find free and pay-for-use WiFi hotspots near you.
  • See your local five-day forecast with current conditions, conduct a reverse lookup of people or businesses and access your My Superpages account to easily see your previous searches.

The Superpages.com BlackBerry Storm application is free and available in the BlackBerry Store. A version for the BlackBerry® Bold™ and the BlackBerry® Pearl™ will be coming to the BlackBerry Store soon.
