Yelp Triples The Search Filters On Its iOS App

Yelp logoYelp quietly made a pretty big expansion of its search capabilities on iOS within the past week.

The company’s latest iOS app update included a new photo viewer, increased visibility of bookmarked businesses, improvements to review highlights … and about 15 new search filters that should make it easier for users to find the specific types of businesses they’re looking for.

Before the update, Yelp’s iOS app had seven filters including things like Price, Delivery, Offering a Deal and Distance. The update added 15 new filters:

  • Takes Reservations
  • Accepts Credit Cards
  • Outdoor Seating
  • Good for Kids
  • Good for Groups
  • Take Out
  • Wheelchair Accessible
  • Accepts Insurance
  • Has TV
  • Dogs Allowed
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Paid Wi-Fi
  • Full Bar
  • Beer and Wine Only
  • Happy Hour

Certain filters only show up on searches for certain types of businesses; i.e., you won’t see “Beer and Wine Only” when you’re searching for a dry cleaner. Most of the filters seem geared toward restaurants and related businesses. Here’s how some the new options look on the iPhone (on a restaurant search):

Yelp says the new search filters will be available soon on its Android device.
