Yelp's new iPad app is a feast for the eyes
The Yelp iPad app's user interface is quite different from the iPhone version. In landscape mode, it keeps the list of venues and their star rating in a sidebar, and devotes the remainder of the screen to reviews and large photos. Switch to portrait, and you can view search results as a list, a photo grid, or a map. Another feature you'll find in the iPad version of Yelp, but not in the iPhone app, is the ability to write reviews without loading up Yelp.com in your browser.
All in all, Yelp's iPad app doesn't add a ton of new functionality, but it does add a ton of new visual flair, especially in the photo search results grid. Even if you only occasionally use the Yelp website on your iPad, your eyes will thank you for getting the app instead. You can grab it for free in the App Store now.
