What's New in Version 11.21.0
Looking for reservations? Now you can see available tables and times right from a restaurant’s page on Yelp and book with fewer taps — so you can save your tapping strength for Clash Royale Of Clans or whatever.
An app I hate, but sometimes love.
Why can't I filter my restaurant search results for Waiter Service? There are filters for Dogs Allowed, Nearby Pokéstops, Gender Neutral Restrooms, and Military Discounts. Are these features of interest to a greater number of people than those who might want to know without drilling deep into each search result whether they'll be standing at a counter and ordering something that comes on a paper plate, or being seated in a comfortable booth and waited on? I think not. The existing filter options are useful, but the exclusion of more commonly useful features is just silly.
Yelp! allows users to post idiotic hateful reviews that destroy good businesses, and no means for more reasonable reviewers to respond to them. There needs to be a way to balance the campaigns of nastiness. Some moderation. I can vote that a review was helpful, but if I have factual knowledge that a review contains outright lies, all I can do is ignore it. What sense does that make?
What's with the default order of search results? It makes no sense. Results which are closer and higher rated often appear below results which are further and lower rated. The inanity of result ranking is infuriating enough that I haven't bothered researching it. Ugh.
All that and a heap of other unspoken complaints being the case, I still find Yelp! to be an invaluable standby when I'm in an unfamiliar neighborhood and need to find some good food.
Most recent updates are annoying
I love the Yelp app and have used it for years. It is overall the best app of its kind, however the most recent version has a couple of UX features that are really obnoxious.
1) the new push notifications contain a picture of the user; I love my friends, but being able to see their first name and last initial is more than enough. Unless it's a preview of s photo they're posting, I don't need to see their face every single time they check in somewhere.
2) Yelp has changed the format of the app so that you can scroll through photos by pulling down from the top of the app, but for businesses who are paying for the photo organization feature (so they pick what shows up first) it doesn't trigger when you see photos from the top pull down—annoying simply because if a business owner has organized photos in order of aesthetics and relevance, the last thing you want is to be relegated to swiping through some millennial who posted a few too many selfies of themselves.
Updated Review - Aug 2017:
- the most recent version does not allow you to add a biz tip when you click "add tip"
Yelp app can either be told in a few sentences, or not told at all. Here is an app immune to spoilers: If you knew how it ended, that would tell you nothing unless you knew how it got there. And telling you how it got there would produce bafflement. The app is all about process, about fighting our way through enveloping sheets of reality and dream, reality within dreams, dreams without reality. It's a breathtaking juggling act, welcome to Yelp.
It has a wild production design, a bit of claymation, and lots of unusual toys and props demonstrate what ingenuity can do on a tight budget. Yelp isn't regarded as abnormal in this app -- as it was in the less successful follow-up, Big Top Pee-wee -- rather, he's just an innocent man-child in a red bow tie who would rather find his stolen bicycle than go to the drive-in with the persistent Dottie. I love it.
