Siri gains Yelp app integration under iOS 5.1

Updated

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.
