We Tried It: YP.ca App


Living in a small town in the mountains on the West Coast has its’ plus sides – but I’m still a city girl at heart and that means many trips into Vancouver, whether to go shopping, check out a new restaurant, or visit our family!

Yellow Pages has recently launched the new version of their free YP.ca app for both iTunes & Google Play, intended to make your shopping experience better and provide over 20 million business listings at your finger tips. The app is the perfect tool for impromptu trips into the city – it lets you discover a neighbourhood, informs you on any events happening in the area, gives you shopping deals, and even finds you the cheapest local gas prices!

I love that the app saves you time when checking out a new area or that it can help you discover new things in an old locale! The app quickly shows you great shopping deals, awesome events going on, and restaurants to eat at!


I was hanging out in New Westminster recently visiting my mother-in-law and decided to do some exploring in her neighbourhood – using the YP app I quickly discovered where the closest Starbucks was located. After a lovely little coffee date we headed over to a new Yoga & Pilates studio and took a class, it was fun discovering places to go in a new neighbourhood!

Before heading home I needed to fill up on gas and the YP app shows a map of all the local gas stations and their current pricing – amazing! It gave me directions straight to the gas station and helped me save money at the pump. And it’s so super easy to use, which is a major bonus when using a new app.

Another great feature is that you can save your favourite finds into “My Book” – a new boutique you discovered with the YP app can easily be saved in its’ own category and easily found again! I love that this app is catered to your needs and offers you deals and things to do that you’ll actually be interested in.

The YP.ca app is available for download at iTunes and for Android.

    This looks great! I am always asking Siri where the closest —– is and never get a good answer. But Wow! What a difference in gas prices!!

      Yes, SIRI is so useless for me because she can’t even find the closest town that I live in (she can’t even pronounce it!). This app is great because it works in big cities and small towns!
