    Restaurants used to ask you to fill out a comment card on your table. Nowadays, if a restaurant asks for feedback, it wants you to rate it on Yelp. And with the Yelp app, you could do it while the flavors and service are still fresh in your mind

    While Yelp is most commonly associated with finding good places to eat, Yelp allows you to rate many other establishments, too, like hotels, dive bars, and gas stations. It’s an interesting app to use not only while in unfamiliar territory, but in your own backyard, as well. With their augmented reality feature, Monocle, You can hold the phone up as you’re walking around and have ratings overlayed on the businesses you pass by, though we would advise against actually walking while using it.

    It can filter searches based on proximity and what’s open now, so when searching for late-night munchies after a pub crawl, you will only be steered to somewhere that’s actually still serving. Once you see a restaurant you like, you can place reservations in Yalp via OpenTable, and then you can share the restaurant on Facebook or Twitter to guide any party members there. Businesses can also offer coupons and specials through Yelp, so make sure to check your restaurant before you head out.
