Interested in receiving the latest version of the Yelp Android app before everyone else? How about trying out new bleeding-edge features we're experimenting with? You're in the right place!
To become a beta tester, you'll need to:
1) Ask to join the community
2) Click the below opt-in link (once you've been accepted):
3) Be awesome
Your feedback will be crucial in identifying issues that may arise as new features are released. We sincerely appreciate your interest in making the Yelp app better!
NOTE: This is beta software. That means you're more likely to encounter bugs, crashes, or just generally weirdo behavior than you would with the non-beta version. But it's also a lot cooler, and you will be cooler for using it.
If it turns out this isn't for you, no sweat! You'll need to click the "leave this test" link in the opt-in page linked above in order to get back to the Google Play version of the app, though.

Two minor annoyances: When I tap an Android alert "4 friend check ins" it goes to check in comments rather than the full list of checkins. When I search for a business under Check In, and tap the business, and check in, when I repeat that to check in to another business a few minutes later the previous search is still there. I'd prefer that it be cleared when I select a business.
#BugReport When I go to a biz to check out my review, I see both FTR and ROTD. But there isn't anything under FTR. Or, maybe it's out of place. The only way to clear it is to go through the reviews page, then, go back to the main biz page. I don't know if this is happening to everyone's app.

Having trouble with bookmarks. It will add the bookmark, and show that a venue has been bookmarked, but when I close the app and go back, the venue isn't bookmarked. I add it again, and the same process repeats.
I'm still having the same issue as before where if I have pending special alerts (i.e., comps, FRs, messages) then my regular alerts (i.e., pic, check-in & tip likes) don't clear until I've approved all the pending special alerts.
When trying to open up the original review on an updated review the app goes to the spinning Yelp logo but then takes me to the top of the update and not the OG review. This only seems to be happening with my reviews, and not other's reviews. Anyone else having this issue? .GS4 Android 5.0.1 🍭 App v7.9.0 non-beta
That makes sense +John Dyke. It is bouncing to the review in the priority position (in this case you, or in the one I was looking at, Bryan.) +Luis M Chen just posted that he is having the problem too.
I don't have a problem posting a horizontal photo. It only worries me when I see the 90-degree turn during uploading. But this doesn't happen every time. I wonder if this is just me. Most of my Yelp friends use iPhone, so I can't compare our experience.
We lack the ability to share reviews viewed from the feeds (user's personal and friend feed), unlike reviews seen from the person's reviews. Well, it's really more of an #oversight than a #bug, but you get my point.
