Yelp Hits Android Market Today

The good news is that Android users finally have a Yelp app to call their own. The bad news is that it's relatively bare-bones.

The basics are all there: restaurant and business navigation, ratings and reviews, photos, and direct calling all work just fine. There's even a new feature that shows you directions from your current location to your destination in separate browser.

What's missing, though, are all the interactive nibblets that make Yelp such a fun guide to use. The Android version is read-only, meaning that for now you can look at other people's opinions but not share your own. Still, though, it's a nice free alternative to Zagat's ten dollar equivalent. [CNet]
