Users of Yahoo! Local can now click a "send to phone" link which sends a text file of local listings to their cell phone or PDA.

Blurb is here [thestandard.com]

I really think that whoever is most effective in developing mobile applications for local search is going to really well in this space.

Yahoo appears to be making progress...

Having tried this service numerous times this week, I must say that I am very impressed with its ease of use and potential utility.

What would be helpful is to allow the user to send a little message along with the listing. Something like "meet me here at 9" etc.

Yahoo local is continuing to impress.

Thanks for the post, Lawrence.
