Yelp app

iOS and iPadOS

I am experiencing challenges with VoiceOver and the Yelp app so I wrote them to bring the issue to their attention. After just a couple days, I'm pleased to report that Charlotte, a member of their support team, personally responded to my report today saying they're aware of the problem and it's being worked on. Just thought I'd share a positive story of my experience with Yelp. Hopefully we get that fix soon.

Why not do an app review here in applevis, then forward the link to them. This will let them know there is a community that appreciates the work they do to make the app accessable.

I suspect, like most developers, they don’t fully grasp the idea of accessability.

HTh and good luck.

Just wanted to drop a quick update about my experience. Not really interested in doing a review but you go right ahead if you want. Its a good idea

Unfortunately, I am still having troubles with the latest version of the Yelp app for iOS. For some reason, it will not save my star rating. The consequence of this is, I might write a glowing review for a restaurant only to go back and find that I gave it three stars… Even though I actually gave it five stars. I try to edit my review and adjust the star rating, and still it appears with a rating of three stars no matter what I do. Finally, I tried clicking "update review" and I get an error message saying I cannot update my review and to try back later. What is this app, a total joke?
