Yelp update finally allows users to write review via mobile app


Yelp, a service for rating different businesses, etc, for others to see, has just been updated to bring a feature long-absent from the application: add review. As you can see above, next to the “Add Photo,” “Check In,” and “Bookmark” buttons is the new “Add Review” button. Here is the change log for the new version 7.0.0:

What’s New in Version 7.0.0

Today’s release is pretty epic, and we’re not kidding around. Are you sitting down? You might want to sit down. Starting today, you can add reviews from your phone! Visit any business page, tap “add review”, and go bananas.

This is good, as Yelp integration has been growing and growing in iOS ever since Siri came along, especially in the new Maps app as well. Siri can give you Yelp reviews, as can the new Maps app that came with iOS 6. So it only makes sense that Yelp would bring the ability to add reviews to its iOS app. You can get the app here if you don’t have it: Yelp.

What do you think? Do you use the Yelp app? Glad to see this added? Let us know in the comments, or tweet me @TiP_Kyle.

    Get paid for all the reviews that you wrote for Yelp! over the years. Federal and State laws state that as Yelp! had the right to control you as a reviewer/writer and as the reviews you wrote were essential to their business of reviewing restaurants and businesses that you must be paid wages for all the reviews you wrote.  We will ask the Court to award approximately $100 per review that you wrote. For example, if you wrote 650 reviews, we will ask the Court to order Yelp! to pay you your wages of $65,000.00.   It doesn’t matter in the eyes of the law that you were convinced to work for Yelp! for free as you can’t legally waive your right to wages. As this is a class action, if you want to continue to work for Yelp! you can do so as it is likely that a multitude of Yelp! unpaid reviewers will share in the court ordered award.  Clearly Yelp! owes you wages under the Nature of the Business test. Yelp! admits that it would not exist if not for you, a reviewer. But we’d like to know about Yelp!’s control of you in writing a particular way, how you had to do things their way at every stage, disciplined you for not following their rules and fired you. fff
