Yelp Update Brings Improved Search, New Photo Viewer, and More

Yelp has been updated today to bring in a new photo viewer that displays who added the photo and who liked it. In addition, the search filter UI has received a major overhaul bringing more attributes that you can filter by. Review highlights have also been improved and you can now top any review highlight to browse through all the reviews that mention it.

Places you have previously bookmarked also appear in your search results now.

Looking for a burrito joint open now? An Irish pub nearby? A gas station you can drive to before your tank hits empty? Yelp for your iPhone or iPad is here to help. Use us to search for places to eat, shop, drink, relax and play then read reviews from an active community of locals in the know.

What’s New In This Version:
• Two of our summer interns, Max and Alton, locked themselves into a conference room back in May with a three-month supply of Red Bull and Power Bars. When they emerged this week they were sporting glorious beards and presented us with a brand new photo viewer and search filter ui. Now all photos display who added them and who liked them and Yelp search got even more powerful with lots of new attributes that you can filter by.
• We’ve improved our review highlights – now tap any review highlight to browse through all the reviews that mention it!
• Finally, we are now indicating places you’ve bookmarked in your search results. You’re probably wondering why we didn’t do this earlier, to which we sheepishly shrug. :/

You can download Yelp from the App Store for free.
