Yelp Updates Its App: Good News for Android Users
Yelp (NYSE:YELP) iOS app version 7.2 has just arrived, bringing with it a number of interface changes. Not forgetting Android users however, Yelp has some changes in store for those who went the smartphone route sans Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone. Previously, only the check-in location option was available to Google’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android users, according to PCMAG.
Reviewing the location checked-in at had to be put off till users reached a laptop — or borrowed their friends iPhone. With the update though, Android users can now not only post reviews from their non-Apple phones, but they can also include photos. It can be assumed that Yelp will gain a whole new market’s attention with a single app update.
“The government shut down may have ground Washington to a halt, but it hasn’t slowed down the Yelp Mobile team … We put aside our difference and reached across the aisle (separating our desks) to collaborate on what may be one of our biggest iPhone updates to date!” said the company in its product update notes.
