Siri gets expanded Yelp functionality

If you’re a big user of the iPhone 4S you may be interested to hear that Siri has been given a slight update. The slight update brings expanded Yelp support. The update came in iOS 5.1 that was released last week and users that travel a lot should appreciate the new feature.

The update allows Siri get more integration from Yelp. That means when you ask Siri to find the nearest specific restaurant, Siri returns the results along with starred reviews if available. Granted, that is a minor update but it will be welcome to users looking for a specific type of restaurant in an area they are unfamiliar with.

You have the starred review next to the restaurant listings and you can open the Yelp review page. This is a great way to help you decide if that restaurant you are looking at is worth trying. Check out the video below to see the Siri and Yelp integration in action.
