Mobile411: Search by Voice, Get Directions, Share

Posted on 4.13.2008
There are many mobile search functions popping up these days and, well, here's another one. Mobile411 has a few functionalities that are intriguing. You can search by text or by voice for businesses or white pages, and what you get in return are listings with phone numbers and addresses. Pretty simple, but there's more.

One of the nice features is a link for a map of the location, driving directions (GPS-enabled) and the ability to share what you've found with others via SMS by using your current address book. Mobile411 also saves your searches so you will never have to search for the same place twice. Finally, there are live operators available if you have any difficulties. The only downside is that you have to download the application, which might send some users straight to Google 411.

Check out the cheesy, but effective video demonstration.
