Yelp Updated with Improved Social Features and Streamlined iPad Business Page

Yelp today updated its Yelp app for iOS to version 6.5.0, offering improved social search search results and a redesigned iPad business page. Yelp on the iPad is now streamlined, with easier access to hours, menu items, and phone numbers.

"Explore the Menu" and Yelp Deals, which have both been offered on the iPhone for some time, are now available on the iPad. Search results on both the iPhone and the iPad have been enhanced with information on friends who have checked into businesses, and the Yelp app now offers clearer notifications on restaurant hours. The update also includes several bug fixes and performance enhancements.

We gave our iPad business page a whole lot of love. It's now more streamline and clear, with more emphasis on business photos. In addition, we're now showing Yelp Deals and our new "Explore the Menu" feature.

Yelp search just got more social: Now you can see which friends are checked in to businesses directly from your search results.

Getting to a restaurant just after closing is a major bummer. Now we'll indicate if a business will be closing soon or is just about to open.

We also got in a TON of bug fixes and enhancements: showing your review first in the reviews list, supporting updated reviews on iPad, swipe-able photos on the business page, and huge speed improvements on iPhone5!
Yelp is a universal app that can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Yelp are a bunch of thugs who try to extort local business owners.

They try to convince you advertising on Yelp is a great idea and if you have a different opinion all of the sudden all of your customer reviews become filtered as spam and competitor ads will display on top of your own results page.

Just know that the reviews you see on businesses are the ones that Yelp wants you to see.

The big complaint has always been that the moble Yelp apps don't allow submitting reviews. Sounds like this doesn't change that.
