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!

Developer Response

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



I have never left a review of an app before. I have used Whitepages for years and had no problems with it. I have to let the developers or whoever designed this version that it is the worst, definitely not improved. Along with others, I would appreciate having a choice to have the previous version back. This really is not helpful anymore. It might be if I let it access my location, but I don't do that. I was able to find a number I needed, without before. It would give me a choice of People or Business, whichever I was looking for. Now, the whole USA?! Lousy update! Listen to your users and bring back the previous version. I will be watching for an update, with an apology to previous users, to go back to the previous version. That version, from the other reviews I've read, was the best and no one had issues with. Thank you for hopefully listening, understanding and hopefully returning this app to the great app that it was.

Thank you for the detailed comments. Location can be manually changed within the app, without turning on the services. Press the blue text below the search bar, and you can filter by city or zip code. If you have other specific changes you'd like to see us implement, please let us know at

Developer Response is great


I loved the original app and have written two prior reviews with 1 Star. Both times I’ve received replies from the developer with help in understanding what changed or explanation of what they are working on. And turning location services back on to retain my last city entry (not sure how I turned it off) was my error that in my frustration I blamed the app. My apologies.

I still miss the old one but can work with this one. For most of what I need it still functions the same - getting from point a to point b in town.

My own personal data is incorrect, but that may have been true with the original and I never was inclined to look up my own name. (I assume the database accuracy is independent of the shell overlay created by an app.) It would be nice to have an easy way to alert someone to correct it. My current address is correct but it is placed below an address in another state I’ve never lived in. There’s also some address data errors for a friend I checked as well. As soon as I learn how to correct mine, I’ll tackle hers.

All in all, if we were rating developer response I’d give it 5 stars. But 3 is the best I can give it based on the app itself because I compare it to the original — nothing is an improvement for me.

Thanks for the updated review. We did actually implement some changes based on your last feedback, including the auto-complete on city names. Please continue to let us know what can help you most. In regards to your comments, if location services are enabled on your phone, the area filter should default to your current city. To help you quickly change cities as necessary, there's a grey "X' button on the right side of the area filter. You can quickly clear the city, instead of having to backspace. In regards to the map, our developer team is examining the best way to solve this request. We hope to add a solution in one of our future updates. Lastly, I'd like to understand your comment about "re keying" the Business and Person search. Would you please send an example of that to for technician review?
