We love food. We love Yelp. And most of all, we love yelping for food. Thankfully, we can finally do just that on our Android phones. Yelp has just released their Yelp for Android app that'll use location services to search nearby businesses and display reader reviews. According to Yelp:

  • By leveraging location-aware technology, the Yelp for Android app determines your current location and then lets you search for nearby businesses, read reviews and access a moveable Google map that enables you to easily zoom in/out on a location and redefine your search based on that geographic area.
  • In addition to searching nearby businesses, you can also filter reviews by 'Price,' 'Open Now,' 'Special Offers' and browse 'Hot on Yelp'
  • Like all our other mobile applications, Yelp for Android works everywhere Yelp is available (US, Canada, UK and Ireland)

It's a fairly bare bones Yelp app but we're confident that more powerful features will come (the iPhone Yelp app supports augmented reality, quick tips, etc). We've been waiting for Yelp to come to Android for so long that we'll take anything at this point. If you're anything like us, you're always in search of the next great eatery or figuring out what to order. Yelp will help with that.
