We've just released a very small update: 7.2.0-BETA2.

This beta contains a potential fix to the sporadic crashing issue that some of you have been seeing. If these crashes have been a problem for you, please let us know if it's better, worse, or the same with this update!

Thanks!

-------

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 v7.2.0-BETA2.

Here's a kicker, met a non-Yelp friend last night. Friend sent me a friend request and I never got it. Friend tried again and received a message saying they've already send a friend request. I sent a request and boom, we are now friends. Btw, I'm getting friend request from others daily.

One of my BMs keeps showing up twice. I tried refreshing them and the same one showed up again only this time it was right on top of each other. Maybe there's something funky about that one site?

When scrolling thru a fellow Yelper's gallery I'll sometimes hit a "wall" even though I know I'm not at the end of their pics, & other times the pics will start repeating themselves ad nauseum...

In regards to the 2nd issue you brought up I used to have that same problem but it's gotten much better with this current beta. That only happens once in a while--for me anyways.

Bug Report 🐞

UFC buttons are malfunctioning again. If I go to a review I've previously UFC'd, the app will not show the buttons pressed. So, if I press the buttons, click back to go back to the Yelpers reviews, then look at the review again the buttons remain pushed, but if I back all the way out to their profile them back to the same review the buttons are back up and the UFC numbers remain at what they were before. Very convoluted way of me saying the buttons don't stay down.

RFE: Update Review function deletes all previous text

I note that if you select "Update Review", the previous text gets completely deleted. I think it would be better to leave the original text in the review while you write your update. It would allow you to contrast your last experience with your current experience much more easily because you could adapt the old text and update with new information.

To work around this, you can tap "Edit Review" first and copy the existing review. Then exit back out and tap Update Review and paste in the old text. It could be made easier. Perhaps ask the user if they would like the old review text to be copied over?

It would also be nice for Yelp to store a reviewer's experience at the venue so other users could see historically how this user has found the place (sort of like a demonstration of continuous improvement).

Thanks for the feedback, Jared! Like Tom said, we've already implemented your second idea! We'll take your first idea under consideration -- you're right, there might be a better way to make your previous review easy to reference while you're writing your new one.

Re Feed limits

Sorry to rehash this subject, but a friend brought this to my attention yesterday and I felt it was worth noting/asking about.

So, we've learned that each person's feed is comprised of 30 aggregate items, but my friend pointed out that within those 30 you're not allowed to have more than 20 pictures; is this purposeful, as well? If so, I can't say that I like it because as someone who posts a lot of pics I don't like the idea of them getting buried by some silly check-in because I've reached my arbitrary limit. The 30 aggregate items should be chronological and not have type limitations. This is obviously just my two cents, but I'm sure others feel the same.

I'm right there with ya +John Dyke . I've cut my viewable check-ins to one on a typical day. Only every once in a while I'll check-in publicly more times and I typically post pics when I post my review in the event I don't get to writing it within three month period limit, when pics seem to not attach to the review automatically.  Creative Yelping/work around anyone?

+Carmen Jackson (Non-app issue, web version issue) I'm noticing again that the "People you may know" is back on the right panel of the web version. The first time I saw it I was annoyed that all I saw were girls with fake boobs and guys with stock photos of washboard abs, remember? The people listed are people I've unfriended. If there is a logical reason why I would want to befriend people I've unfriended, I'll take it under advisement, otherwise, it needs to go. If it's been there since the first time I brought this issue up here, boy where have I been?!?!??! I like to think I'm a bit more cognoscente of these things.  At the very least, let us have the option to clear all and/or report as "repetitive", "spam", "offensive", etc... Carmen, please pass on this message to the appropriate peeps. I am most certain I'm not the only one who finds this idea silly.

I'll give a hefty +1 on that as well +stephanie papp
Have you seen the feature on the app that shows you "Joe S rated XYZ Restaurant 4-stars" when you unfriended Joe S months ago?

#bug report

I've been experiencing a lot of notification image loading failure lately (see pics below). I've tried refreshing (aka swiping down) to see if that helps but no dice. Also, the app becomes generally unusable when this happens as it bogs down to a slow crawl. A quick "kill" usually remedies this misbehaving.

+James Hurley+Carmen Jackson​.... Just got pinged by a fellow Yelper who hasn't been getting notifications since last update. I have him the jump through hoop instructions. He just logged out and back in. It worked. Although we've been told we shouldn't have to do the jump through hoops method when there is a new release, it seems to correct notification issues. I'll try friends short cut next time I have issues and advice.

Yeah, I had the same issue. Not sure if it's b/c of the update or the install on my new phone was bad, but I just uninstalled then reinstalled and it worked.

Just noticed on my iPad app that they now have an icon announcing FTRs (First to Review), as well as a profile category called "Firsts" for your FTRs and FTTs (First to Tip); will we be getting that as well?

I'm having an issue with sending yelp page via the Share-> text message. Some places the yelp link is clickable, others when you try to click it, it'll only tries to open the address.

Re User feeds

So, after a few days of seemingly random-randomness, the personal feeds seem to have stabilized at 30 aggregate items instead of the 25 line items that it used to be. This is a definite step-up from the 20 aggregate items it was, but I feel like maybe I like the 25 line items better??? Only because I'm inclined to occasionally u/l 10+ pics at one time, and this would use up 1/3 of my feed. However, I can see how this would benefit the person who only u/l one or two pics at a time as this could potentially increase their feed. How do you other users feel about this?

Here's something new, when preparing verbiage to a check in, if I accidentally click out of the keyboard, the already written verbiage disappears. Also, I can no longer copy unposted check in verbiage from the check in window.
