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.

Possibly the WORST APP EVER


So almost all google searches for a restaurant include the yelp listing and reviews as a top result. If you make the mistake of clicking on it thinking you’ll get more information, you will instead be led to a page which asks you if you’d like to open up the result in the app. That just a formality and not a true and actual choice because even though you’d be perfectly happy to continue reading the result that has your interest right there in the mobile-version website, you actually have no choice but to indeed select the open-in-app version. Once you do that you will have one of two completely frustrating experiences— you will either be prompted to update the app (because this app seems to require thrice weekly update), or you will in fact be taken to the app, but to a thoroughly generic page which bears no connection to your original search, must less your original result. If you haven’t yet fainted from hunger in the now 13-Minute long experience, you may start your search all over again from within the app but it will never bring you the same result of the half-read review that originally caught your eye in your google search. To spare myself this agonizing frustration I have deleted this stupid app from my phone and when googling restaurants only click on Trip Advisor reviews so I don’t have to be dicked around in the Yelp app circle of hell any longer.

Extremely corrupt/dishonest


Yelp is an extremely corrupt and dishonest company. None of their reviews can be trusted, just read down through some of these reviews and see some of the things that they have done to people, especially small businesses who will not pay their outrageous advertising fees. Yelp is strictly pay to play. Always check other reviews and other resources before patronizing any business reviewed or advertised on Yelp. You are going to miss out on some very good restaurants who did not want to pay to advertise with them and had all of their positive reviews taken down. They will also have employees post false negative reviews to harm your business, this is nothing more than extortion. You will also wind up in an establishment that is shady or nothing like what their positive reviews states, simply because they have paid Yelp to remove negative, honest reviews , and put up fake 5 star reviews, trying to lure you in. Even the reviews in the App Store are a hoax, with hundreds of Yelp employees putting up fake 5 star reviews about how great Yelp is, which we all know is a joke. Let's hope another company comes along soon with reviews that can be trusted, and employees with honesty and integrity. 0 stars for this extremely shady, dishonest company that is Yelp. Easily the worst company out there and getting worse, no end in sight for these evil crooks.
