Yell has a fantastic reputation for helping people find businesses around them. Its app is quick to use and has the additional benefit of offering great deals from local businesses. Such functionality has now been extended with users now able to read and write reviews of any businesses they visit.

The app has had a total redesign, providing Yell‘s customers with an entirely new look that offers a better way to navigate and a much faster experience overall. There’s enhanced mapping too to make sure there’s no fear of getting lost while tracking down a location.

The ability to add personal reviews of a place means that users can quickly figure out where is best to visit, whether that place is a restaurant or simply an excellent store for specialist knowledge. For the small business, it particularly helps get the word out which is frequently the best form of advertising.

It’s the kind of functionality that’s just made Yell even more unbeatable for the business search app world.

Yell is free to download now in the App Store.

Arriving on the App Store today is a clever combination of trusty local business search engine Yelp and people’s experiences of such businesses.

Jollyspot promises to make it easy to remember and share favourite places. Users can find the best hotels, restaurants, bars, cafes, shops, spas and more anywhere in the world all through trusted recommendations from friends who have already used such services. Further advice can then be offered via a notes system that allows users to add information such as the best meal, best time to visit a bar or other useful insider knowledge.

It’s a simple concept but potentially highly effective. There’s no gamification of social features like with Foursquare and other social apps, it’s all about the best places as chosen by regular people/friends. The friends element means the information is guaranteed to be pretty reliable making Jollyspot surely the first port of call for the scoop on the best places to visit.

Jollyspot is available now as a free app.
