Yelp Released for Android

Yelp blizted mobile this summer, with webOS, BlackBerry, and iPhone apps all coming out in rapid succession, but Android’s not left being the last one picked for the team (that sadphone hat goes to Windows Mobile). If you haven’t checked it out, Yelp is a community that lets users write reviews, rate locales, and add friends who have similar tastes. The types of locales vary across 22 categories, but some of the bigger ones include restaurants, nightlife, spas, and shopping. The mobile app in particular is GPS enabled, so you can search for reviews of places close to you, map the results, and click to call. Good stuff all around – folks in US, Canada, UK and Ireland can get downloading Yelp from the Android Market presently.
