    Looking for a tip here.

    How do you look up a local phone number (for calling) or address (for nav).

    I have tried Yellow Pages, magnifying glass (search), and a few other apps but nothing is working great for finding the closest Pizza Hut for example (had a gift certificate).

    What do you use?

    by the way, maybe those apps work great and I am not using them correctly so any advice is appreciated.

    Holly smokes you are missing the best part of the google phone! Use the map app. Search inside there and it will find pizza all around you and then map them. click on one and it will give you all the info including address and phone number. Dial right from there if you wish. In many cases customer reviews and buzz are in there. Then just navigate to it. street view will even show you the store front.

    Even just zooming in without search will list businesses at a certain address on the map.

    "Where" is also a decent app for what you're looking to do.

    Lars,
    That is exactly what I needed. I knew it had to be easier than what I was doing!

    Perfect. You are a champion.
