yelpapplewatchApple Maps partner Yelp has today announced an update to its iOS app that will bring the service to Apple Watch. The announcement comes in the midst of more and more companies announcing their Apple Watch apps as the April 24 launch races forward.

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. Now that’s what we call a micro machine!

The app allows users to search for places of interest in addition to receiving recommendations nearby businesses and restaurants. It also comes with Handoff support, allowing users to jump from the Apple Watch to their iPhone to make a phone call, write a review, add photos or video, or check in for potential rewards. The Apple Watch app is live today.

Yelp can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Still don't see the point. My phone is in my and has a much larger screen and is much more powerful. Why would I use the watch?

In the case of an app like this one, I have to agree. The best apps are "at a glance" style apps or ones that are voice activated to respond with simple data. App developers will figure this out just after everyone else does.

It's a shame their iPhone app still feels like something out of iOS 5/6.
