Great functionality, reviews I can trust
I've used Yelp since 2006. I keep coming back because it's trustworthy and reliable. Like so many others I've heard the rumors about Yelp and it's review recommendations. Do you really think a company could really bully businesses that bad without getting caught in 2016? No. But the reviews I see are reviews I believe. I look at the non recommended reviews. 9/10 times it seems like it's the person's first review... And probably came from the owner or an employee. I want to know an honest rating- and that doesn't come from the owner, employees, or their friends that they've asked to review their business. It comes from me, my neighbors, the strangers out there looking for the best restaurant, Doctor, electrician. If I wanted biased reviews I'd go to Google, TripAdvisor or CitySearch. I want the truth- so I use Yelp.
Not as good as the web version
I use Yelp all the time and find it very useful. However I have 2 concerns. First, the app is location centric. This may be good for when you are looking for something local, but if you are looking for something in a place you will be tomorrow or next week in another city, the app has a really hard time finding it. I wanted to write a couple of reviews, but since we had moved on to the next city, the app would not find the businesses I wanted to review.
Second, Yelp sells advertising. This means that they have the ability to push businesses that buy advertising up above those who do not...similar to what the better business bureau does. This is a strong-arm sales tactic that should be illegal. So i always look at All reviews when looking at Yelp and I discount all of the featured businesses because they have paid to be at the top of the list.
Will Remove 5 star reviews if you do not buy their packages
I highly recommended against downloading Yelp. This app places money before accuracy. When our restaurant page first launched on Yelp, there were a handful of 5 star reviews that showed up on our recommended reviews page. Shortly after, we were contacted by a Yelp representative that wanted to sell us an advertising package for $1,000 a month. After we declined the offer, they started taking many of our 5 star reviews off our recommended reviews page and moved them to the reviews that are not recommended tab. We now have a total of 17 5 star reviews that are hidden from our main page, but if a two or three star review is written regardless of how long the user has been on Yelp, it will always show up on our main page. This app is nothing but a business only looking out for itself. The sad part is that many people still believe that this app exhibits accuracy in its filtered reviews.
