Yelp iPhone: Making it Easier to Edit & Share Business Information

Our team is always hard at work to improve your experience on Yelp.com and our mobile apps -- and today is no exception! You asked for it and we’re happy to introduce several new features in our iPhone 5.5 update.

This release allows users to:
• Update a business' hours, address, categories, and more from your phone.
• Snap and instantly share a business photo with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.
• Add new businesses to Yelp with just a few taps. 


Edit Business Information & Business Photo Sharing

It’s important to note that while yelpers can edit and add this information on the go, it still goes through the same vetting process that happens on Yelp.com. Once our team reviews and verifies your changes, it will go live. This is to ensure that we’re always pointing you and other yelpers to the most useful and accurate information and not somewhere that’s not a real business, like your Aunt Sally’s kitchen (even if the apple pie is killer).

And if you own a local business and would like to update your hours of operation, add information about yourself and more -- unlock your Yelp page for free via biz.yelp.com.
