Local.com, a local search engine, is holding a contest to promote the company's Local Mobile service. As part of the promotion, the company will be giving away one Apple iPhone each day for 30 days to Local Mobile users.

"The goal of the Apple a Day Giveaway is to promote awareness of our new Local Mobile offering and have more people try it from their mobile phones and devices," said Jennifer Black, VP of marketing at Local.com.

To enter the "Apple a Day Giveaway" Local Mobile Challenge, individuals are expected to go to www.local.com/win and complete the entry form.

Local Mobile is a mobile-centric site that provides users with a quick, easy way to perform local searches by entering a keyword and a location from their wireless phone or device.

Local Mobile enables users to:

  • Quickly access search results based on a simple "what" and "where" search
  • Access business profile pages, complete with mapping
  • Access driving directions
  • Send listings to mobile phone or device via SMS
  • Access click-to-call functionality
  • Sort results by relevance, distance or name

The contest runs until October 17, 2007. No purchase is necessary to participate. The contest is open to legal US residents, 18 and older. The contest is not valid in New York and Florida. Winners will be notified via e-mail.

"Today, people are æon the go' and need to be able to search for information whenever, wherever," Black said. "Local Mobile aims to meet this need with superior mobile local search capabilities."
