Emoji convey a lot using very little, and now Yelp has tapped into this to speed up its searches. No, the results don’t come in any faster. Rather, instead of typing out a word as long as “hamburger,” just insert a picture of one. Want to hit up a bar? Head to the emoji section of your keyboard and drop in a frosty mug. Yelp will know what to do.
Yelp doesn’t just handle food, and the app is more than happy to provide the addresses for nearby churches, banks, and hotels.
