What’s New

Version 12.52.0

We resolved to have zero bugs in the app this year, so the fact that we squashed some for this release means we kinda failed. We also resolved to eat more tacos though, so the fact that we had carnitas while we did it sorta makes up for it. Life's all about balance, right?

Useful, but can use improvements

Why am I docking one star? We always use this app to find restaurants and businesses, and it’s very usefully and easy to used. Unsure if this is a bug or by design, but it’s a huge pet peeve of mine and poorly executed if it’s by design. When I write longer reviews I tend to do a lot of cutting and pasting to move elements of my review around so they make more sense. However that’s not possible in the Yelp app for iPhones. So I write them outside of the app (for example in notes), so that I can really think about it, check for errors, etc. Then I want to copy and paste it from Notes into Yelp. But again for some reason on the app, Yelp has blocked the ability to cut and paste information into the reviews field. I would then have to go to a computer (outside of the app) to finish my review. What a pain. There’s no reason why I shouldn’t be able to cut, copy and paste (edit using IPhone editing capabilities) into the field when leaving a review. I would have left many many more reviews if this worked like any other app and and not blocked the ability to edit in that field. If you want more people to leave reviews, fix it. Editing didn’t exist in the iPhone 1, but was added thereafter. So no reason to limit people to editing as it was 10 years ago.

Yelp has a place in the market however when it comes to construction contracting yelp has created a spot for haters. Point we build mega resort style outdoor living. Over 20 years hundreds of project A+ rating BBB no citations or disciplinary action from state contractors board. We run into contract language to govern our client inclusions and exclusions. We’re having client say if we don’t include a specific exclusion than as Graham S. Did leave a negative review. Notice he made no comment on the work fact is that would have exposed him to fraud if he stated such. Other bad reviews come from potential clients who just didn’t like our business model or pricing. In other words were the messenger of bad news when we tell them costs or if we’re not interested in there project. Not like a common consumer trend yelp is designed for.
I would put my marketing dollars into yelp but as I have stated feel yelp has a did functional service towards industry that is more complicated than everyday uses.
