Editors’ Notes

We all enjoy discovering new places and experiences but some of us don’t like to be surprised. If you’re one of those who prefers to research then Yelp is the right source for you. From restaurants and shops to night clubs and museums, check comments and ratings by fellow Yelpers and make sure you make the right choice.

Why anything less than 5 stars


Yelp is my most used app for many reasons.
First, I travel a lot so I’m alway in need of finding the best local grub spots in town from the true insiders (the locals). Second it’s always nice to hear about an ice resurrect from a friend who tells you a mini review while describing why you should go there. So why not get those reviews for restaurants from places even your friends haven’t been to!
Third, it’s awesome to be able to see what the most popular menu items are from the frequency of mentions in reviews. But also to get a picture attached to a menu item in which case might not be found on the actual menu in the restaurant.
And final but last greatest amenity that y’all provides is the information about restaurant; whether it be cash only of small location so not suited for large groups, etc.
If you’re not using yelp when you’re looking for great food in a new area or even finding old places you never knew existed in your own home town, you can use the app to help find other useful tips for other business and services offered out there.

Functionality is usually good, but...


The app works fine most days, but there are times when certain functions simply don't work. For instance, none of the photos for businesses are displaying on the app for me. I can see ratings, reviews, and the attached photos, but I can't click on any or the app shows there are no photos posted. There is also another problem I run into every now and then that involves the search feature. Whenever I type in a new city or change search filters, the changes are never saved; the previous search results just refresh.

I don't have a problem with Yelp's practices. I think it does a great job at preventing fake 5-star reviews from counting towards a business' rating. A lot of people complaining say that a 5-star review on their business page is authentic, when in reality it's the owners themselves, family, or friends posting the review. It's all too common, and you can tell by the number of 5-star reviews from blank profiles (1 review, no photos) that go up within a certain timeframe. I also think Yelp does a great job preventing competitors from posting fake 1-star reviews on other business' pages, which is becoming a bigger problem.
