Siri gains Yelp app integration under iOS 5.1

As noted on the Yelp Official Blog, Siri now takes users directly to Yelp when tapping on a business listing. According to the post, Siri wouldn’t take you directly to Yelp when tapping on a listing prior to iOS 5.1, but with the new release, Apple updated the functionality. Now, tapping on a business recommendation takes you straight into the Yelp app, and to that business’ profile page. Apple did not publicize the new feature in the release notes for iOS 5.1, instead highlighting the addition of Japanese language support to the virtual assistant.

And yet another reason not to use Siri. While I love my Iphone, Siri has yet to prove useful. She rarely understands me correctly and when she does the results are less than useful. Deeper Yelp integration only makes matters worse. I don’t trust any site or service that removes negative reviews for money. I’m just glad I don’t have the Yelp app.
