Yelp 5.8 now allows users to comment on they friends’ check-ins, allowing them to immediately add their thoughts, tips and recommendations when they see their friends check-in at a familiar location. Length limitations on tips have also been increased allowing users to write longer, and more expressive tips. Yelp 5.8 is available from the App Store as a free download.
