Yelp iOS App Update Adds Apple Watch Capabilities

“The Yelp app for Apple Watch serves up nearby restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and new businesses along with their star rating, review count, business category, price range, distance from your exact position, and hours of operation. We’ve stylishly packed in millions of local reviews with petite precision so you have vast insider knowledge right at your fingertips…”

The announcement adds Yelp’s name to the list of companies joining the Apple Watch app gold rush. Apple’s new wearable should start showing up at the door of buyers on April 24.

Yelp’s new Apple Watch app will support Handoff, allowing users to easily jump from their Watch to their iPhone to place a phone call, add a review, take a photo or video, or check in to the business.

    It seems incomprehensible that the Yelp app for the Watch doesn’t allow you to check in to places from the watch. Seems like that would be the #1 use for the application. Oddly, it seems like not a single person on the internet has wondered about this?
