More Updates to Yelp for Android (and a few for iPhone)

We promised 2010 was going to be an even bigger year for Yelp Mobile and today, we are excited to announce V1.4 of our Yelp for Android application. In addition to our previous updates, this release will give Android owners the ability to:

Bookmark Businesses: Two-way bookmark syncing; any business you bookmark on will show up in the Yelp Android app and vice versa.


Draft Reviews: Draft reviews from your phone and they’ll be waiting for you to polish your prose when you’re back at your home base. Read more on why we currently don’t allow publishing of full reviews from mobile devices here.


Since launching Yelp for Android in December 09, our team has worked hard to iterate consistently and we promise we’ll have additional updates for this application, as well as others, soon. (Yes, we are talking about Check-ins… as well as some other really cool stuff!)

Additionally, you may have seen earlier this week we released a few updates to our Yelp for iPhone application. For lucky 3GS owners, you get even more “Magical Map” features including when you’re on business page maps, tap “Orient the Map” to orient the map to the direction you’re facing. Compass schumpuss when you got Yelp in your corner! Because you’ve been busy bees, for Check-ins, we’ll highlight the places you’re a Regular at on your profile. And in addition to those updates, we’ve also given you some bug fixes as well as the long anticipated iPhone Jet Pack feature.


OK, not really. But you gotta admit, it would be pretty bad ass.
