Yelp comes to Android; Upadates following soon
Frequent Yelp users will be pleased to see a Yelp for Android app take its place in the Android Market on Monday.
Yelp, the growing Zagat guide-meets-social networking hub, introduced its Android app today. Users can search for nearby businesses, browse and read reviews and access a move-able Google map — you can easily zoom in and out of locations and refine your searches according to desired geographic areas. Like all of Yelp’s apps, it’s available in the U.S., Canada, the U.K. and Ireland, and reviews can be filtered by “Price,” “Open Now” and “Special Offers.” The Android app is the 5th member of Yelp’s mobile family, which includes WAP, the iPhone, Palm Pre and BlackBerry.
Yelp for Android is available in the Android Market and works in all of Yelp’s markets (U.S., Canada, UK and Ireland). The app is free — just go to the Android Market on your handset and search for Yelp.
