Yelp App to be Pre-loaded on Select T-Mobile Phones

Beginning today, a special version of the Yelp app will be preloaded onto the Samsung Exhibit II 4G, T-Mobile® myTouch® and T-Mobile® myTouch® Q. And we have to say, it's pretty darn cool to see these devices in T-Mobile stores and www.T-Mobile.com, with the Yelp app already loaded on them! 

Existing T-Mobile customers with Android devices are able to download the free app which features new advanced filters to make searching for a business easier and faster. Additionally, there is a new “saved search” functionality, which allows users to save search filter settings (e.g. open now, free wifi, price range, and outdoor seating) and use the same criteria over and over without having to re-enter the specific filters, for frequent searches. 

We could explain how these new bells and whistles work, but we thought a quick demo video would sum it up nicely.

There's no doubt we're thrilled to be working with T-Mobile! In fact, to help promote the release of these new smart phones with the pre-installed app, we'll be engaging in an integrated marketing effort (can someone say Yelp Elite Parties) in Austin, Denver, Detroit, Honolulu and Sacramento.
