Unlike other mobile map applications it allows users to save business names, addresses and contact details directly to the phone contact list. This means it only takes a simple click to call through. This information can also be forwarded to the user’s other contacts via text.

Carey Bunks, head of mobile, said, “Mobile search applications are becoming increasingly popular and with mobilePeople we know we are supplying our loyal users with the very best in breed technology. maps are extremely useful for people on the move whether on the way to a business meeting or on a night out, providing them with both contact information and directions.”

The new mobile maps application is available to all UK users immediately. The application is initially supported by 65 different mobile handsets and is set to expand rapidly to more than 100 handsets by the end of August 2008.
