Send Gift with Address Auto Append (iOS)

Find Person can enable many interesting workflows, including this mobile app example that allows you to find a person using partial name and address information in a spur-of-the-moment “Send a Gift” via a mobile device situation.

This sample application demonstrates a hypothetical situation where you’d like to be able to look up a person and their address based only on the name and a portion of the address (such as city and state, or postal code). With just a few details and with the help of the Whitepages Pro API, such an app becomes possible and removes friction from users using Mobile devices for e-commerce transactions.


Tap Send Gift and enter some information to identify your gift recipient such as “FirstName, LastName, City State” and tap on Submit. The app uses the Whitepages Pro Find Person API to retrieve the most likely match and display it on the screen. From here you can confirm that this is your desired gift recipient, or try again with slightly different information.


This example uses the Find Person Whitepages Pro API. The application was built using Xamarin Studio on a Mac running OSX 10.11 (El Capitan).
