According to Yelp, "the stars have aligned" for its new release, bringing a much-anticipated feature and a few photo-related tweaks. The anticipated feature I mentioned is, as the title of this post suggests, the ability to publish reviews right from your phone using the "add review" button from any business page.

Previously, users could only draft reviews for publication later through Yelp's website. Now though, you can publish reviews on the go or in the heat of the moment, before ever leaving the establishment you're praising and/or criticizing!

With the new Yelp, users will also see photos from each business with their accompanying reviews, and photos can be accessed on any business page with a quick swipe down. If you haven't already, grab the update below.

    Mobile publishing? This is a big day in certain developing nations; now, all those fake reviewers can skip the pricey Internet cafes. Finally, their Ashas and WindowsPhones can start to pay for themselves. ;-)

    Finally, yelp has done a great job that it launches app for mobile users. Now, fake review submission will stop and users can get the right information, images and full details about any company.

    Now we can all expect to see more bad reviews by a$$hole Yelpers. Who is going to take the time to write a review on their mobile when they are having a good time? Only the dickhead who is angry that the server forgot to put a smiley in their latte.

    Yelp's review filter is garbage and manipulated to extort advertising dollars form small business owners.
