Introducing A New Search Experience for Yelp Users on iOS

If you haven’t already noticed, we’ve recently been sprucing things up on Yelp! Over the past few months, we’ve added new improvements to the app home screen. We’ve designed new category icons for quick search and are providing more personalizing suggestions through machine learning. And guess what? These improvements are just the tip of the iceberg.

We recently introduced a new, improved Search experience on iOS to make it easier to discover and explore businesses nearby.

With this update, we’re bringing you the ability to easily scroll between the list and map views of search results. As result, users are finding the business they’re looking for more quickly and some are even using the Yelp map for the first time!

We’ve redesigned the Yelp map view and updated the business pins so that you can more easily view business information. We’ve also introduced new business page cards that appear at the bottom of the map when you tap on a business pin. These business cards include the business name, star rating, category, location, and buttons to “Order Takeout” or “Reserve Now.”

These new cards make it easy to swipe through search results and quickly view business page information without having to leave the map view — which is particularly useful for comparing businesses in a specific location. Be sure to download the latest Yelp app on iOS to start exploring this new Search experience today!
