What's New in Version 10.11.0
Break out the red-and-blue glasses because we've added 3D Touch support to the Activity Feed! Wait, we've just been informed that 3D Touch doesn't require any special eyewear.
Awesome utility; the app itself needs work.
Yelp is awesome, once you take the outliers with a grain of salt, such as the lone one-star review about the time the waitress tripped and spilled a few drops of water on the customer, or the five-star reviews of the otherwise two-star business, probably written by the owner's friends (or the one day the business actually ran smoothly).
What pisses me off about the app itself? When you are writing a review, tip, or photo comment and you receive a phone call, urgent text, etc. and when you switch back to the Yelp! app, that which you were drafting is GONE, UNSAVED, HISTORY! #SorryIWastedYourTime #NotSorry Also, if you were checking out a business, scrolling through the reviews, you will need to find that business again and search for wherever you left off. It's okay Yelp! My time isn't important.
Hey Yelp! Developers! You must be new to iOS. I believe it was iOS 4.1 that first allowed apps to run in the background, allowing your progress to be preserved while you work in another app. While your new, trendy 3D Touch functionality is really #TryHard, refreshing the app every time it goes from background to foreground after a few minutes effectively takes the app all the way back to iOS 3. Congratulations!
They remove or hide 1 star reviews at request of business owners
Regardless of what their claims might be, Yelp does indeed remove low ratings and poor reviews at the request of business owners and managers, most notably ones who advertise with them. One of the sleazy ways around admitting to this is placing a poor review into the reviews "not recommended by yelp" area, hoping you won't read them. They will throw an occasional 4 or 5 star review into the mix to make it look like it's all on the up and up, but it is not. After watching several local businesses in the area for some time it's almost comical to watch the negative review on them disappear in a short period of time, with yelp hiding behind the pretense of this process being "automated". Be careful when choosing a place to eat or shop when using yelp, you can easily get burned by false positive reviews and deleted or hidden truthful reviews. Always double check with sites like tripadvisor and other review sites, where they do not cater to businesses for their own personal gain. Any business who advertises with Yelp can have your negative reviews deleted immediately, no questions asked. These guys are bought and paid for by some of the shadiest businesses in the entire world. Not to be trusted.
This app used to be the gold standard for finding stuff, and maybe even getting an idea of whether a business was good, bad, or at least worth a try. Not true anymore... The demise began with Yelp using Orwellian methods to filter contributor's reviews. Then came the inevitable mafioso tactics of muscling small businesses to pony up advertising cash or else... Now, it's become apparent that more and more businesses are being blacked-out... try searching for BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse in Houston/Katy TX.
Additionally, a serious annoyance... I appreciate reading real, useful, and concise reviews. I don't have the least interest, time, nor expectation of reading a book; especially when some drama queen gets their panties in a knot over a ridiculous social slight and blabs on and on uselessly about crap totally unrelated to the quality of services or products offered. Likewise,sometimes I'd like to share my thoughts on an experience; again, real, useful, and concise... But nooooo... If I'm not wordy enough, the overlords at Yelp block my brief prose, and relegate it to the 'Tip' file (aka trashcan). In short, this app is no longer helpful!
