    Everytime I open the Yelp app it shows a pop-up "Connect to iTunes to Use Push Notifications" and you can't make it go away even if you try hitting the OK button many times. Other apps show this message too, but one click of OK and they would work fine.

    The problem with the Yelp app is so bad, you can't even exit out of the app by pressing the home button. The phone gets frozen. I have to press the power button to put the phone to sleep, then using the drop down notification I have to open an email or a message or some other app and by pass Yelp that way.

    Any body have this problem? Is there a work-around?

    This is a beta.

    The developers of Yelp didn't even have access to iOS 7 until 2 days ago.

    The only fix is for Yelp to make the app support iOS 7.

    When you install a beta, this is to be expected.

    App seems to work fine for me. I'm using it on an iPhone 5. I don't get the error message at all.

    Of course, I know this is a Beta and problems are to be expected. I was just wondering if this was a problem specific to me or it was a problem faced by others too and if there was a work-around. I will just use the web version of Yelp, I guess for the foreseeable future.

    If this was directed at me, it was totally irrelevant and added nothing to the discussion. In my OP all I asked was as if others had any issues with the Yelp app and if there was a work-around. I never complained about any other bugs that are always part of a beta release like this.

    I'm more surprised people use the Yelp app than the fact a beta broke it lol.

    I travel a lot for work and it is a great tool to find review of restaurants and such. What app do you use?

    Well, you could've just post this bug under iOS 7 Beta 1: Bugs and Problems instead of making a big deal out of it. It crashes, doesn't work, it's a beta!
