TellMe is a dead-simple 411 service.

      Category: Mobile

      TellMe is a dead-simple 411 service. It's actually two-services. One is a voice-controlled directory service that lets you search for business listings using a free 800 number. The other--and more compelling--use is its mobile app. Once they've downloaded it, users can it to look up businesses on a map, get directions, and keep track of any previous searches they might have made, which are saved in a temporary history folder. While the 800 service is free, the mobile app uses data, so make sure you have a data plan before racking up charges.

      Microsoft acquired TellMe earlier in the year.
