Yelp has launched a long-awaited (by iPad users) iPad app. It’s now available in the iTunes Store.
The app lets users do the following:
– Search for businesses using a new landscape map/list mode, or flip your iPad into portrait for a full screen view
– Browse business information and reviews
– Write Yelp reviews and share to Twitter and/or Facebook
– Bookmark businesses you want to try or have been meaning to review
– Sign up for a Yelp Account
Yelp has announced check-in offers for businesses, meaning that businesses can offer Yelp users special deals for checking in at their place of business.

The feature is part of the business owner dashboard on Yelp, and the company says it gives businesses a measurable way to reward their loyal customers while attracting new ones.
