The Yelp application for Android has been updated this week with a nice range of enhancements packed inside, and is now available for download for Android 1.5 or later devices.For those out of the loop, we should note that Yelp for Android provides users with the possibility to easily find and read reviews about local businesses near them.
Whether it comes to finding a place to eat, shop, drink or simply relax, the Yelp application will help users easily find what they are looking for.
The new flavor of the application, namely version 3.7, hits devices with a newly integrated action bar UI, which should provide faster navigation through the app.
Furthermore, the mobile software brings along Yelp Talk, while also featuring a holiday theme, which is the development team’s way of wishing Happy Holidays to their users.
There is also an enhancement for early birds, the team notes: “users who add the first Tip for a business will now earn a ‘First to Tip’ honor.”
The app also brings along all the features and capabilities that were previously available for its Android users, including quick links to easily find nearby bars, restaurants, cafes and more.
The list of features that this software arrives on devices with also includes:
- Narrow your searches by hood, distance, price, and what's open now
- Browse reviews to read what's great (and not so great) in your city
- Find great Deals offered by your favorite local businesses
