Yelp removed two of my reviews for "it did not provide enough detail about your customer experience." One was detailed enough to pass muster, the other was my short honest feeling of another place that was "meh" that I won't be going back unless put into that situation. If they want people to be honest about their experiences, they need to accept that people have varying ways of expressing their views, even if it is brief. Plus they don't list all locations even if given info. Now I just use the app as a quickie atlas to find locations. No reviews, no ratings, no nothing.
What is there to complain about? Most of us use it as our default business search engine, even with its flaws. Sometimes my recent searches don't show up in recent but I still use this more than Google Places. No sense in knocking down a star if it's my go to.
This is a very useful app.. I use Yelp to find any spot, not only in my city, but the county as well.. reading other ppl's experience is very helpful.. some comments make sense, others think their royalty.. if you're not too sure about other ppl's comments, check the place out yourself and let us know what was your experience..
. The app continues to be mediocre at best and have added nothing useful in forever They fixed the Collections problem, so they earn another star. Main feature gaps: 1. Can't search bookmarks in a area. 2. No BYOB flag on restaurants. Clearly, the use cases for this app were developed by underpaid 20 somethings with no ability to travel more than a few blocks from home. Other categories of users include people that travel and plan trips to places they have seen before and would like to find bookmarks in the future destination. Sucks to be that sort of person.
In the past, I've typically used the App on my phone as a resource -- seldom rating restaurants or writing reviews on my phone. However, I do like to use the App on my tablet for that purpose and THAT has become easier and easier over time! Now sporting a new phone, I find myself using the App on my phone more and more... That said, the more I use the App, the more I realize how outdated and broken it is. Hopefully, as I write this the development team at Yelp is diligently working on their next generation product! I can't wait to see what they're working on!
Yelp is inconsistent, one sided, and shady in their business practices. If I could rate 0 stars I would. They ask businesses to make monthly payments to remove bad reviews, they give reviewers the ability to comment with no photo and make derogatory statements, and won't allow businesses to respond without a personal (approved by yelp) photo. They run their business like a Mafia!
We removed precisely 37 bugs (and one intrepid spider, which we’re pretty sure isn’t technically a bug) from this version of the Yelp app.
