Yelp for Android’s built-in mapping feature has long been outdated, but a brand new upgrade in the Google Play Store has updated the app’s integration to use Google Maps v2. What this brings is the vector-based mapping that we enjoy in Google Maps, which means we’ll finally be able to explore listings in the map view using the 3D topography feature.
Alongside the new maps, Yelp’s update should bring us improved loading times and the general round of bug fixes and performance improvements. Perhaps it’s not the ground-breaking experience-changing update some are looking for, but since maps is as big of a feature as any in this type of app this is pretty monumental for the Yelp faithful.
