Location GPS search tool - InfoSpace Find It

"InfoSpace provides a valuable search application that helps BlackBerry users find nearby locations of interest," said Jeff McDowell, vice president, global alliances, Research In Motion. "Location-based applications, like InfoSpace Find It!, provide an added dimension that can simplify and enhance the mobile experience." InfoSpace Find It! is a premium application that distills millions of listings into six easy categories tailored to the on-the-go user - Dine Out, Go Out, Shop, Travel, Health, and Services. It combines eyes-free spoken directions and simple-to-use GPS functionality with the convenience of local search to locate nearby businesses, people, and events quickly and easily.


Mobile phone with a GPS receiver - InfoSpace Find It

"Now that I have InfoSpace Find It! on my BlackBerry, I can't live without it! In my day-to-day travels as a real estate appraiser, InfoSpace Find It! provides easy mobile access, giving me maps and directions to the addresses I'm looking for," said David K. Akina, owner of Akina Appraisal Group, Los Gatos, Calif. "I also use it to find what's nearby the houses I'm appraising, like restaurants, copiers, coffee shops, etc. It's so easy to use and accurate because it works with my GPS receiver, and it saves me the expense of calling 411 all the time."
