Power of the people!!!!

I am writing this because it is a RARE occasion these days, in our media, technology, & business driven society that reviews can and ‘hopefully’ will have an impact on the direction and success of the reviewed company.
In addition to a generation that has no idea about the importance and/or price of “PRIVACY” which ultimately affects our freedom, we have companies that are pushing that boundary to the outer limits, and less & less people have the time or intellect to care about ramifications. So, to the point; I have used this app for years and have always been VERY satisfied with the performance, but recently the app tells me I NEED an UPDATE, which seems to be the trending business model nowadays.
Before automatically complying with the digital request/demand, I read all of the reviews and weighing the pros & cons and after doing so, I found one common & reoccurring complaint that specifically addressed the “UPDATED” version being inferior to the previous version, to include requiring the user to allow access to their location. Probably contacts as well, but I’m guessing because I haven't tried the newest version and won’t be downloading it (EVER) based on not one or two; but NUMEROUS negative reviews citing similar issues. So again, power to the people. Hopefully folks will continue to communicate about functionality and PRIVACY issues instead of blindly marching lock-step into “1984”

Thanks for the review! We do request both location and contact list access, but I can explain why below. Location is optional, but it helps us understand where you're searching, so that we can provide nearby results. This saves time for the user, so that they don't need to manually type in city & state for their searches. Contacts is requested so that you can add numbers directly to your saved contacts. If a user finds someone they need to save into their phone, they can easily do so after they found them in our app. I understand the privacy concerns, and hopefully this provides some useful context.


Amazed I found it

I don’t subscribe to any white pages premium search service- yet I found the now grown, twice married, moved to Florida woman who grew up in my house, the daughter of the previous owner. They moved away 38 years ago!
I was trying to connect this woman with her long ago college boyfriend, who sent a letter here addressed to her or to “current resident”.
I found her brother on Facebook ( name unchanged, being male) and now having his full name including middle name, found his relatives on the white pages advanced search. There is a very small profile, but it showed the town she was from, and both married names.
I forwarded the guy’s letter to her, to take what action she wished, and was rewarded with thank you notes and a gift from both of them about a month later.
I’m not a detective or a techie so the credit doesn’t go to me. I’m impressed with both Facebook and the White Pages!


If it’s not broke, don’t fix it!

The app was great the way it was. My lame iPhone did automatic updates and installed this latest version. I wish I could undo the update. The latest version took the simplicity and versatility away and replaced it with a very limited version.
The original version, or just prior to the latest update, had four categories which enabled you to search for a residential listing, business listing, a reverse phone number search, and a reverse address search. The business listing gave you the option to search by a list which sorted by proximity, or you could view a map that used location services to show what was closest to your position. You could easily expand the distance to look beyond your locality. The reverse phone number and address enabled you to find a a person, business or place, that you may only have some, but not all of the information.
Everything worked great. And now, not so much. Confusing, limiting, not user friendly. Maybe there’s a learning curve, but like I started with, if it’s no broke, don’t fix it!

We made some recent updates based off your feedback. First, the primary person search screen allows you to perform reverse phone, reverse address, and name searches, all from the same search bar. A location filter exists to narrow this down by city, state, or zip code. We recently made improvements to the business search too, which should help organize relevant options nearby. If you have other ideas on how we can improve beyond the latest update, please update the review, or let us know at
