YP and Gas Guru on Apple Watch

Posted by: Darren Clark – Chief Technology Officer

It may seem like a long time ago, but back in 2007 when Apple launched the original iPhone, YP was one of the first local search apps to make its way to the iOS platform. So it’s only fitting, as Apple released its long anticipated Apple Watch, that YP would be one of the first in line to build an app for the platform – an app that would make it, yet again, even easier for consumers connect with local businesses.

YPCB003AThe new YP℠ app for Apple Watch was designed with simplicity in mind, letting people quickly find nearby restaurants, ATMs, gas stations, and pretty much any other type of local business simply by using their voice to search. The app quickly provides business addresses, ratings, distances, directions, and more.

But we didn’t stop there. We made sure that the incredibly popular, YP Gas Guru app would also be available on the Apple Watch – a must-have app that helps people avoid hitting “empty” by making it quick and easy locate the nearest gas station with the lowest pump price, for every fuel grade.

Wearable technology couldn’t be a more perfect format for delivering local search content. Having instant access to information at a moments notice is what people expect today more than ever before. Plus it creates a new opportunity for local businesses to reach local consumers and grab their attention. Being available on the Apple Watch platform is one of many steps in YP’s journey to become the definitive the leader in local search.


Both apps are available for iPhone, Apple Watch, and Android on iTunes App Store.
