Yelp's first version for BlackBerry is a basic first stab to get Yelp.com's core review-reading features on BlackBerry phones. The three-panel start screen lets you browse or search for listings, or access your recent searches. Eye-pleasing it is not, but it did successfully help us find a lunch spot, map it using Bing (movable) maps, and scan reviews for recommended entrees.
Yelp 1.0 for BlackBerry is read-only, with limited interaction from users. There's no way to write reviews, rate others' reviews, or e-mail a listing to a friend. However, the application is undoubtedly straightforward and easy to use, but those expecting to replicate the online experience on the phone will be disappointed.
