Yelp's Android app was updated to version 5.9 this afternoon, adding an apparently much-requested feature: messaging support. The Yelp app did not previously allow users to send one another messages, but this has now been remedied. Hooray! I guess.

Otherwise, there's nothing going on here - probably a few bug fixes, maybe some performance tweaks. Oh, and a Mitch Hedberg quote, a la Yelp's typically enjoyable changelogs: "I order the club sandwich all the time. And I’m not even a member, man. I don’t know how I get away with it."

    Do we need this? I always looked at Yelp as a more complimentary social network.

    I fear I will have yet another inbox filled with spam...

    I don't support this slanderous company and their crony business practices.

      I can second this. As a business owner I speak from experience that they will extort people to get them to buy ads.

      Buy an ad and you are good to go, refuse them and your positive reviews are all suddenly flagged as spam and a competitor's ad shows up within your listing.
