Yelp is Getting Personalized Based on Your Dietary and Lifestyle Preferences

Yelp today announced it is rolling out a new personalization feature that enables users to indicate their dietary, lifestyle, and accessibility preferences to receive more tailored restaurant and business results.


The news was shared in a Yelp blog post via Engadget:
After indicating your preferences, which takes less than two minutes, the app will update in real-time, surfacing businesses and things to do you're most likely to care about. Your preferences won’t be locked in either. If you decide not to keep halal anymore, or if you want to eat more salads next week, all you need to do is update your preferences and you’ll see these changes reflected in your app.
Yelp also shared a video demonstration:


The personalized functionality is rolling out now, with all iPhone users expected to have access in the fall. Yelp says the preferences users set will only be visible to them and never shared with a third party.

The latest version of the Yelp app is required.

I hate how Apple Maps uses Yelp as their tie-in. Nobody uses Yelp. Nobody.

Want to view photos of a business after typing in an address? Apple Maps says “photos available on Yelp” and the only option is to install the app, and it takes you to the App Store.

Trash.

Not a fan of their business practices or what they've been doing with Grub Hub taking unearned commissions from rerouting restaurants' phone numbers. I won't be using...

Yelp should be pulled out of the store. Everyday there is a ‘new’ update but in fact they want to remove all the bad reviews.

They probably want to remove the plethora of reviews purportedly for their app that are actually reviews of restaurants and other locations:



I can understand that.

Lmaoooo no way! There are people that leave a review on the app itself mistaking it for the actual restaurant?! Omg.

Does anybody actually use Yelp? People just open their Google or Apple Maps and search straight from there.

I hope there's an option for gluten-free intolerance.


Check out Happy Cow, either its web version or a dedicated app:

I feel like Yelp is where people go just to complain. An app like Seamless are Opentable are more representative of how people like a restaurant, they ask you to rate your experience after you order.
