Yelp Links In Siri Can Take You Straight To Yelp App In iOS 5.1

Before Apple released its iOS 5.1 update to the public earlier this month, clicking on a Yelp link after performing a search with Siri did nothing.

However, changes have been made. Now, clicking on Yelp link will take you straight to Yelp’s iOS app — or the App Store if you do not already have it installed.

The new feature will make it quicker and easier for you to read Yelp reviews, makes reservations, find opening hours, current offers, and more. Under iOS 5.0.1, users had to find the restaurant with Siri first, and then open Yelp and find the restaurant again manually to get this information.

Yelp explains the update on its blog:

Well, last week, Apple launched iOS 5.1 and with it, an updated Siri and Yelp integration on iPhone. Now when searching for a recommendation on local businesses, Siri will return Yelp-reviewed businesses and when you tap the star rating (BOOM!) you are immediately taken to the Yelp business profile page. Oh, the places you’ll go… now that you’ll have faster access to Yelp review highlights, quick tips, hours of operation, address, phone number, photos — the list goes on.

  5. Traditional powders are not as effective as the
    new treatments and involve a great deal of trouble in application.
    For applying on the head first spray your hand and then rub onto dogs
    head to prevent eye irritation and ingesting the chemical by your dog.
