Stylish, but basic

Yelp's first version for Palm WebOS dresses Yelp.com's core review-reading features in a stylish interface.

Yelp's first version for Palm WebOS dresses Yelp.com's core review-reading features in a stylish interface. An eye-catching search bar tops the home screen, followed by browsable categories that include nearby locations and deals. You can filter results, map a location, click to call, save a business listing to the address book, and send listing information to a friend. Yelp is read-only on the Pre, with limited interaction from users. The biggest usability error we noticed on the Pre was having to scroll to the very end of a record to access the Web site link. It would be better to see this in the address block up top.

While this debut version of Yelp on the Pre does have some extras and will help you find reviews and other information on businesses, those expecting to replicate the online experience on the phone will be disappointed.
