Hey all - 

You might've already seen that we're rolling out a new release - 7.6.0-BETA - just in time for the long holiday weekend (if you're in the US)! Here are some highlights;

- A home screen widget: It's true, we're rolling out a widget for your home screen to make it even easier to launch into a Yelp search.
- Food Orders: If you've ever ordered food through Yelp, you can now quickly get to your prior orders from the left side menu. And if you never have, may I suggest giving it a try this weekend?
- Cosmetic changes: We're using a slick new font at the top of businesses pages

Thanks as always for giving this a spin, here at Yelp HQ we really appreciate it! Please keep the feedback coming, and have a great weekend.

-------

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 v7.6.0-BETA.

Why is it that when we view a pic from the feed or notifications (Burnt Almond pic) that the "View Business" option isn't given like when we view a pic (Pulled Pork Slider) from our gallery? So often I'll get a random like from a pic I posted years ago and I don't even remember what or where the business was; it'd be nice to view the business without having to do a random search.

When looking at the events, it would be nice if there was a way to sort the events, maybe by day, location, etc. The way it is now, it shows the OYE on top, then popular events for the next 2 or 3 days underneath that. 
  The way the app is now you have to log in via a computer to check out unpopular events, future events, Elite events, or add an event.  It seems as if this app feature is designed for the casual Yelp app user, that is just looking for something quick to do.  That might be good for some, but for the Yelpers that are Elite, or on their way to Elite, or heavy users, the way to sort, search, and add events from the app would be great. Even if you don't let us add from the app, being able to search and sort would be an improvement.
  I am wondering, will there be a way in the future for more areas of the app to recognize us as an Elite, that way we can see Elite events? It already knows I am a Gold Elite and changed my background color from Red to Gold. So maybe more areas can be expanded by recognizing us if we are Elite too.

The events also repeat over & over in the list, making it hard to tell if there's something new to the listing

This is getting back to a topic that +stephanie papp​ broached a few weeks ago, but I bet most people aren't aware that on the website homepage under the "Your Activity" feed tab it shows you whenever a review receives a U, F or C vote. Maybe we can incorporate something similar into the alerts section? Just a thought.

It would be awesome if an elite yelper could register for a yelp event through the mobile app instead of having to browse through to the website.
It would also be helpful to be able to elite events published by the local community manager through the app and be able to see info about the event and of course register. Thanks.

Enhancement request:

I'd like the ability to copy text from reviews, because sometimes I like to reference a certain passage in a review when sending a comp. Makes it easier for the receiver to know what I'm talking about.

Also copying text from a comp would be nice, as well. Sometimes I can't reply until later in the day, or the next morning, & by then they've probably forgotten the conversation. I like to copy-&-paste their response in my reply comp as a reminder.

I'm not sure if this is a #bug report 🐞 🐞, or not? I've noticed that certain reviews show more than the 10 alloted pics attached to each review and some don't, despite me having more than 10 pics on that site (& yes they were taken in the 6 month limit). This is a relatively new thing, as I'm just noticing it today. Is this maybe just a slow roll-out?

+Carmen Jackson , +James Hurley  Good morning and thanks for the roll out. I'm getting messages from peeps who are reporting they are no longer receiving notifications on the 7.5.2. Guess I'm not the only one anymore. We are all in the process of "jumping through hoops". Will update.

+Carmen Jackson , ok so my CDO (OCD alphabetized) and overthinking collaborated and this is what they came up with....If I go to my "Regular At" feed I see all the places I've checked into and number of times. What I've noticed lately are a few hiccups:

1. Not every check in is counted. There are times I will check into a location, go to the "Regular At" and see that I checked in 1 moment ago, while other times it does not reflect that particular check in. In addition, I've checked into several places well over the number of times other peeps have, yet, I'm still listed below them. Also, I have become the Duchess of locations where my check in count is well below the Dukes.

2. Supposedly we are only allowed to check into locations once every four hours, Ha!!! I tested that theory, on accident initially, I further tested and found that I was able to check in time after time after time, yet, looking at the "Regular At" it would not reflect the current time, but reflect, ex. "Last check in 1 month ago". After waiting a couple days, I tried again, two things happened, it would show the correct time, or it would still reflect a 1 month old check in. 

The reason I feel this could possibly be tied in with the receival of no, or spotty notifications is the hiccup that if the app doesn't acknowledge a check in, it may take a different route and by-pass the notification point. Idk, you guys are professionals, I'm just a test dummy. :-)

Oh good grief, +John Dyke​, 1. The only stupid question is the one not asked. 2. Cleared my cashe over the weekend. 3. To appease you, just cleared again, now I can't even scroll down without Yelp stopping. 😕

In the new Beta, clicking on anything in Activity Feed ( business listing, photo, tip)
makes it crash every time.

I can click on different items, and it will take me to the persons page, the business, or the review as normal. But if I click on the <USEFUL> <FUNNY> or <COOL> buttons, Yelp crashes.
+James Hurley  I did download the update, but they still have the same version numbers. So if anybody posts which Yelp version they are talking about, or checking to see which one they have, it is impossible to distinguish if it is v7.6.0-BETA, or the 7.6.0-BETA from 24 hours later. Even if there is a tiny change, could you update the version number so that we can distinguish which version we are talking about please. Thanks.

I'm still having issues with items not showing up in the "recently viewed" section of the app--and to make thinks worse I'm starting to see old sites pop-up that I haven't looked at in weeks! This smacks of a server issue to me, as I can't get it to replicate on my end.

#bug report 🐞 🐞

Got a report from a friend that pics she u/l that are taken vertically end up posting 90° to the left, but landscape (aka widescreen) pics are posting ok. I'm not sure if she's u/l straight from the app or taking the pics with her phone and u/l later? I suspect it's the former. She's using an LG G2,but unsure on the O/S. I'll get back to you on the O/S and how she's u/l the pics later when she replies back to my pm.

Just saw another friend (that I know has Android) is having pic tilting issues. I'll try and find out what kind of phone & O/S he's using.

#bug report 🐞 🐞

Sometimes, when I create a park site, I enter& submit the correct address, but when the site gets finalized in y'alls end they end up using the correct pin location, but using the City Hall address. I don't understand why they would do that? This error isn't on the apps side, but on whoever is finalizing some of these park sites I'm creating. Can you guys fix this, +Carmen Jackson​ & +James Hurley​?
The two sites in referring to are:

http://www.yelp.com/biz/highway-237-bikeway-san-jose?ref=yelp-android

http://www.yelp.com/biz/stonegate-park-san-jose?ref=yelp-android

As you can see from my screenshots, the pin is correct but the address reflects 200 E Santa Clara St. Which is the CSJ City Hall address.

I get the feeling it's different people, because most are correct and only a few come up wrong. I'm not exactly sure what their line of thinking is?
