SOUTHFIELD — A new mobile application for Apple iPhone and iPad users, BBB Search, allows Business Reviews and other information from the Better Business Bureau to be available on the go.
More than four million companies are covered internationally by BBB Business Reviews. This includes more than 80,000 businesses in the Eastern Michigan and Upper Peninsula region.
The new BBB Search iPhone app can be downloaded for free at the App Store under “BBB Search”. One key benefit of the app is information and graphics are shown in a larger, more user-friendly format. Features of the new BBB app include: search capability for businesses and charities; access to BBB Business Reviews; information about the BBB’s vision, mission and values; FAQs and support. BBB Business Reviews also highlight if a company is a BBB Accredited Business.
With the BBB Search iPhone app, businesses and charities can be found by name, phone number or web address. It also allows users to add Business Reviews to a Favorites list, store business information to their iPhone contacts and share a link for Business Reviews through email, Twitter or Facebook.
Users with other smartphones may still find BBB Business Reviews and connect to the BBB website on their phone’s internet browsers by going to m.bbb.org
