Yelp Version 4.0 Released

A huge update to Yelp iPhone app was released on 1/15/10 with the following changes:

  • Check it: Out to dinner? At the club? “Check-in” to businesses when you’re out to tell your friends where you are. Check-in often enough at a business and get showcased as a “Regular” there. Oh, and see where friends are checking in on a map and via the Monocle Hot.
  • Mad Profilez: See your full Yelp profile and the profile of all your fellow Yelpers in the app. See photos, recent reviews, quick tips, etc..
  • Bookmarks, Friendlier and Map-ier: See all your Yelp bookmarks on a map, and check out places your friends are bookmarking.
  • Mo’Monocle: In addition to check-ins in our fancy augmented reality view, hold your phone “flat” while in Monocle to see a magical rotating map of the area around you.
  • Learn to Share: Share your check-ins and Quick Tips on both Facebook and Twitter.
  • And more….

This update looks really cool, download it and have fun!
