Yahoo oneSearch comes to iPhone

Joining Google and every other technology company under the sun, Yahoo today announced the Yahoo oneSearch for iPhone.  Although it is a Web Application it mirrors a lot of the functionality of the Google App from the App Store.  From Yahoo’s description:

Find what you need, near you

Yahoo! oneSearch helps you find what you’re looking for, wherever you are. For example, search for pizza in your area and get local restaurants, reviews from other Yahoo! users, and restaurant address and phone details. Ready to eat? Just select the phone icon and you’ll be connected to the pizza joint of your choice. Or, select the car icon and we’ll tell you how to get there.

Want to catch a flick after work tonight? Enter a movie title plus your zip code and get theaters and showtimes near you. See what’s tops at the box office, read reviews from critics and Yahoo! users alike, or check out movie photos and more.

A quick once over shows that it works fairly well, though it is a bit slower than the Google App.  It is however, early on in this race and competition only benefits us, the consumers.  From your iPhone, go here:
