Mobile phones and location services go together extremely well. This would help to explain why there are so many apps in the Android Market that offer features like checkins, point-of-interest search, and much more. Yet another to enter the Android Market is the grand daddy of all location services, Yelp.

Yelp is known for its huge review offerings for locations and is used in almost every location-based app I have seen. It was only a matter of time before the company released their own app for the world to try out. The app combines many of the popular features that have been highlighted in previous apps. It offers the standard location search which will pull up reviews of popular places like restaurants or gas stations. It also brings the ever0popular check-in feature to the app so you can always see where you’ve been and where your friends have been.

Another recent feature that is making its way slowly through mobile devices is augmented reality. Yelp has that to. Altogether, you have one excellent app for finding the businesses you want and it’s all presented in a clean and user-friendly way. It’s available for free and definitely worth the download. Check it out.
