Description: Looking for a burrito joint open now? An Irish pub nearby? A gas station you can drive to before your tank hits empty? Yelp for Android is here to help. Use us to search for places to eat, shop, drink, relax and play then read reviews from an active community of locals in the know.
A friend and me at a restaurant:
Friend: This place is the shit, how’d you find this place?
Me: I found it on Yelp. It got good reviews.
That conversation has happened multiple times. I’ve been relying on the yelp website for years in finding good places to eat. Now when I’m not near a computer, I’ll use the Yelp App. It’s easy to use. Enter the search criteria, enter either the location or your current location, then search. With Yelps large database of reviews, I can find almost anything I’m looking for. I mainly use it for food, but there’s many more options like dentists, autobody shops, yoga studios, etc.
I generally trust the Yelp scores. I’ve heard news reports of Yelp and how some places boost their rating with unfair practices, but I usually agree with the ratings. There was one burrito place near San Jose State University that got good reviews and was on a popular food show, that I didn’t agree with. The carnitas was dry and had no taste.
It meshes seamlessly with Google maps, so finding directions to your point of interest is easy.
