    Question Yelp on Blackberry

    Advertisement



    I love using Yelp to find new places to go out and eat and drink at. iPhone as a great Yelp application that even utilizes the GPS to find restaurants near you. I wasnt able to find a Yelp app or even mobile site for Blackberry. Anyone have any information on this?

    Personally, I do not use Yelp anymore since I found out they are pretty much scammers. I actually used the service way back when I had my iPhone. I posted a few reviews of restaurants in the area, some positive, some negative. I noticed about a month later that all my negative reviews had disappeared. I later found out that this is common practice with Yelp. They contact business and offer to make negative reviews disappear for a "small fee". To me, that defeats the purpose of the app in the first place which renders it pretty much useless. Anyway, don't take my word for it - do your own research and find out for yourself. I can promise you that I won't be relying on Yelp for deciding where to go when I'm out of town.

    I use Where instead, works great for me.

    Lol, when I heard they were deleting bad reviews that was it for using them. Don't trust them at all anymore. They are dishonest plain and simple.

    ...just wanted to add that google maps is an often overlooked source of finding local restaurants on your blackberry. Try it out! I found it by accident one day just messing around. Doing a search for Pizza will show you pizza shops in the area but will also show you reviews, etc.

    Bought a paid Yelp app then found free Blackberry app "LifeInPocket" is much better. I should have found this earlier. It offers personalization, much more features plus voice activated GPS navigation. Very user friendly. Once find a restaurant I like, I can click on "Take me there" it will then take me there via voice instructions.
    I downloaded it from http://LifeInPocket.com.
