Yelp Invites Users to Explore the Menu | Courtney Social Media Consultant in Los Angeles

Yelp invites users to “Explore the Menu” of the businesses listed on Yelp with the latest Yelp 6.3.0 release. And for the first time, since…ever, Yelp has released this feature on all three platforms, at the same time.

It’s certainly easier to check-in using Foursquare, but Yelp just gave you another reason to open Yelp first.

From the business page on the website, the mobile site or your Yelp App, look for the “Explore the Menu” link to see the new dedicated menu page when the business is open.

Specifics on menu items, like description and price, will match up with Yelp’s user generated photos and reviews mentioning that particular dish.

Feeling indecisive? Pick something with the “popular” tag – items Yelpers can’t stop talking about – and Yelp guarantees a good meal.

Other Yelp 6.3.0 features include:

We completely rebuilt our iPhone homepage notification bar to make it even easier to respond to friend requests, approve compliments, and view your past likes and comments.
Create more expressive and helpful tips on iPhone by attaching a photo to them.

While Yelp only mentions the iPhone above, the feature is visible on the iPad as well, making the change available on iOS as a whole.
