Yelp adds integrated OpenTable reservations


Yelp has released an update to its popular iOS social location app adding the ability to make reservations with OpenTable. Yelp allows users to search for and find detailed info on nearby businesses such as restaurants, bars, cafes and more. Users can filter searches by neighbourhood, distance, price, and hours, browse reviews from other users and add their own quick tips, photos and reviews from within the app. With version 5.1, Yelp users can now look up their favorite restaurant and make a reservation directly through the OpenTable service simply by tapping the “Make Reservation” button. Yelp is a universal app and is available from the App Store as a free download.
