Me again. I was just wondering what you collectively know about the way that smartphones integrate with businesses. Where is the data that certain apps pull about them stored? For example, if I have an app that displays all the pubs in my area, where is the app getting that information from? Is there any codified way that businesses do this ?

In any app which tries to find information like that, it needs to have an integration with a third party. Local data like pubs, resturants, ATMs and others, can be fetched from these third parties like Google Place, FourSquare etc. They provide Rest APIs which can be fed to mobile apps.
If the restaurant is registered with the third party that has been integrated with the smartphone, then it will show as a search result. If it is not registered, then it will not come as a search result.
If the app is made by a company which has its own database, then the smartphone will be integrated to its own information. There is no codified way of showing information on searches like these.
