Hey guys, we’ve got another update rolling out today: v7.1.0-BETA! This one is mostly bug fixes and smaller updates. 

One note: this release adds a new app permission: “Prevent app from sleeping”. But don’t sweat it - this will help upgrade the app’s push messaging service, and you may also see some battery life improvements as a result.

Thanks for giving this a spin! We’ve got some big things lined up that we hope you’ll really like. Please keep the feedback coming!

-------

Remember that new builds can take time to propagate out from the Play store, so give it some time if you don't immediately see the update.

And make sure you've opted-in to the Beta by clicking the link in the Community description.

If you don't know whether you're running the beta, go to the app Settings page. At the bottom, the version number will be suffixed with "-beta". This release is v7.1.0-BETA.

Can you guys seriously get on the iPhone app guys to fix that annoying photo comp feature they have where you can't tell what photo they're comping and what photo it is we're comping to them? They're so lame that they can't even tell what one iFruit user is comping to another iFruit user. They're all just now figuring out this feature and I can't tell you how many photo comps I've received and the following conversation happens:

Them: "Great pic!"

Me: "Thanks, but I'm not sure which pic you're referring to"

Them: "Oh, the one of the McGullicuddy at Joe's"

Me: " Oh, ok. Thanks!"

I've sent them a bug report via my iPad and they act like that's normal and what it's supposed to do. I even sent them pics to show them what it should look like and they just said: "Oh, we'll look into it..." 😬

Under Settings > 'Share to Facebook and Twitter', I have all three options turned off. When I go to post a review, I'm still asked to post to Facebook and Twitter.

Minor Bug Reports 🐞

1) Duplicate alerts are still happening but far less frequently and not as annoying. Hardly worth mentioning, but I did anyways ;)

2) Check-in likes aren't holding. They'll get unliked as quickly as they're liked. Usually have to click 2-3× for it to finally hold.

Is everyone still getting random crashing? I can't figure out what I'm doing to cause it to crash but it's usually when I click to open up a new "window" within the app. Happens about once every five times I use the app.

Not sure if happening for other people. If you click on Talk, and then click on My Talk tab before the initial talk page loads or before the Loading icon appears, my app crashes. If I allow the initial Talk tab to load completely, and then click on My Talk, it works fine.

1st of all let me say I love the new events tab. I can see and RSVP to tons of events in my area--sometimes over 100 are shown! I have a few questions/improvement suggestions:

1) Are we ever going to be able to view/RSVP YEE on the app? This question comes from +stephanie papp​​

2) Are we going to get a customizable search radius to broaden/narrow down the events area?

3) A map feature like how the bookmarks has with the Google Map on top and the events listed below would be really swell, as well.

Thanks again. 👍

I understand how you feel. But I was talking about the way the feature works for the YEE on the website.

In no way, shape, form, or fashion am I telling them to adopt the same concept of the website. I just felt like I would be comfortable if they adopted the YEE concept (i.e. clicking your elite badge and being directed to the YEE page).

I apologize if I've revved you up.

Still getting that weird issue where if I look at a Yelper's profile pics 1st; then hit back; & then open their gallery & all I see is their profile pics. I then have to hit back and gallery again to get their business pics to load up.

There seems to be a weird disconnect between the check-in totals when your reading a review, to when you're looking at the review on the business site. For the record the 2nd check-in amount (the site view) is correct & not the amount listed when reading the review. It doesn't happen on every review, but most.

Bug Report 🐞
I've been sitting on this one for a long while, but if you "like" a check-in & the conversation on the thread becomes incessant and annoying, "unliking" the check-in doesn't stop the conversation from coming in even if you haven't commented. I've talked to friends who have the iFruit and they say that unliking works for them. Can we please, please, please fix this?!

+Juan Taveras​, I've noticed that for awhile now as well, however, my pics actually show up in my thread, as well as the business. It just doesn't show in your above pic... For me anyway. Still annoying because I always have to double check.

I just updated athen opened the app GoodReads and was immediately impressed by the What's New page. The subtle color, icons, and layout was very nice so and I wanted to share it in the hopes that the Yelp devs could do something similar.

I'm getting the missing photos again, after looking at a profile and then going back to the friend list. Both of the helpers have profile photos, now missing. The screenshot also freezes the app like before.

Bug Report update:
Ok, I think I've figured out the problem: no matter which review you look at, if you're looking at it from your review list within your profile it always shows 1 check-in (regardless), but if you look at the review from within the business page it shows the correct number of check-ins.

I didn't see your latest response until now, but I just looked again and a few reviews actually showed the correct amount, but most didn't. I tested it on several friend's reviews and they were off, as well. Very strange.

Suggestion: How about a recent activity tab for friends' reviews and photos?

RFE: Talk Push Notification and Subscribe Threads Functionality
At the moment, the Talk area on Yelp Android is largely ignored by me because new activity is not put in front of me in the form of push notifications.

Another issue is that for those threads I've participated in, I don't get notified that updates to the thread have happened like I would on a regular forum (which chat is kind of like).

Suggestions
1) Hook in push notifications into the Talk component of the app.
2) Let us subscribe to each discussion thread by either
a) email updates
b) push notifications (offering both options is important).

Additional Info
I wasn't aware that a discussion about the Android app interface changes was happening until my Community Manager told me that they were discussing it. I weighed in and let them know about this group. Hopefully they'll join and give feedback.

Bug Report 🐞

I'm noticing that when I'm scrolling/swiping thru business and Yelper's pics, in their respective albums, that the app will just suddenly stop letting me swipe like I hit a wall and I'm on the last pic when I know I'm not. I was having this issue long before this version of the app but kept forgetting to report it.
