Local Business Search is a free application from the book "Practical webOS Projects with the Palm Pre". It allows the user to search for businesses in and around their current location (as determined by GPS or entered location information) based on user-defined search criteria. A list of results is presented which the user can tap on to get a map view of the business and can even launch the Google Maps application directly to get driving directions. The user can also designate choosen search results as favorites, giving them a business-oriented contact book of sorts. As a little bit of eye candy, the background of the application can be changed, including animated backgrounds such as the computer code seen in The Matrix movies!
