Yelp Releases New Mobile App Made Just For Business Owners

Business owners already keep up with Yelp, as reviews can make or break sales. But at the end of the day, the mobile app remains a consumer-facing piece of software, encouraging users to check out which establishments are hot and leave their own feedback.

While Yelp isn't changing its main app, it has released a separate one that acknowledges how much attention the people running restaurants and stores pay to the service. Yelp for Business Owners lets these folks follow analytics and reach out directly to consumers who leave them reviews. It goes so far as to deliver notifications whenever someone leaves a message or review.

Google Play Direct Carrier Billing Expands To 7 More Operators In The Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Romania, Turkey, And The UK

Millions of smartphones will be bought during the holidays and the new owners' urge to quickly fill them up with apps and games is a great monetary opportunity. That's why Google seems to be eager to cross off many of its carrier billing deals before the end of 2014. So after Saudi Arabia's STC and Indonesia's Indosat, direct billing is expanding to 7 new operators in Europe.

First of all, three new countries join the list with available carrier billing: Hungary with Telenor, Romania with Orange Romania, and Turkey with Turkcell. The Czech Republic sees the addition of O2 to the existing T-Mobile, Italy now has TIM besides Wind Italy, Poland adds Orange to a list of 3 other supported operators, and H3G (which, from what I can tell, seems to be the same as Three) in the UK joins T-Mobile, Three, and O2.

SimplePlanes Flies In From The Maker Of SimpleRockets And SimplePhysics

Google Publishes 'Live Channels For Android TV' App Into The Play Store, But So Far Not Much Is On

While it's possible to create a TV platform that doesn't deal with live channels, smart TVs and game consoles alike generally try to integrate the content as best they can. Google intends to as well. The company made an effort with Google TV, and these days it's trying again with Android TV.

Today Google has released an app for accessing live channels into the Play Store. The "Live Channels for Android TV" app is unsurprisingly incompatible with phones and tablets, and while it shows up as already installed on one of our Nexus Players, it doesn't appear anywhere on the device.

Nokia Drives The HERE Navigation App Into The Play Store, Leaves It Parked In Beta

For years, Google Maps has been a compelling reason to own an Android device, but it's not the only mobile navigation service out there worth your time. Nokia's HERE service has built a name for itself, attracting users thanks to its presence on competing platforms and a number of strengths, such as the ability to store maps for offline viewing/navigation and the presence of data in countries Google essentially considers the middle of nowhere.

HERE previously came to Android as a Samsung exclusive, but when a beta APK appeared a couple months later, it was safe to sideload on other devices.

Retailers In Turkey And South Korea Now Offer Google Play Gift Cards

For dedicated Android users, there's a certain feeling of comfort that comes from seeing Google Play gift cards line the shelves of their local convenience store. The visibility serves as a sign of the platform's popularity and reach, a little reminder that the OS we've come to rely on isn't going away anytime in the near future. Now those little cards are appearing in two more countries: Turkey and South Korea.

In Turkey, the gift cards come in increments of 25, 50, and 100 lira. South Korea's options range from ₩15,000 to ₩50,000 and beyond.

14 - 5 14 - 4 14 - 2

Indosat, update: one of the largest mobile carriers in Indonesia, appears to have added support for Play Store billing. This means that subscribers throughout the world's fourth most populated country should be able to pay for Google Play content by adding the fees to their monthly bills.

Indonesia has not yet appeared on Google's list of supported carriers, but the carrier has provided information on its own website. Here's the provided imagery, which unfortunately is rather blurry.

This change is good for consumers because it gives them more choice, allowing them to commit to purchase content in the future that they may not be able to pick up today.
