    • As far as I know, this should be available everywhere that Yelp! is available. It sadly doesn’t work on 5.0.1 though, so I can not take advantage of it at this time.

    • That would be awesome! I believe that is what the MLB uses for their MLB@Bat stadium feature. I could REALLY get into being at a Phillies game and telling Siri to bring me a Cheesesteak, pretzel and Soda.

      I’m still waiting to ask Siri for directions and “it” actually tell me how to get somewhere; be it using Navigon or another GPS app. I’m not into the whole opening Maps to just give me text directions.

    • I personally use Yelp! almost daily. But then again, I’m one that would rather eat out than cook at home.

      • That’s exactly why I think Yelp is worthless.  I’ve eaten at places rated low, but turned out to be fantastic.  Other’s rated high were awful.  It’s totally un-realiable.

        • I can easily agree with what you are saying. I tend to use Yelp! to see what the price range and hours of operation are. May glance at what people say are worth eating, or what “problems” they may have had at a location.

  1. This would be a nice update if Siri did that outside the USA as well, like here in Germany…! Or use Maps for directions…or use Wolfram Alpha…or do anything useful like that at all…! :(

    • I saw that this is US specific, will be doing a small update to the article. 

      WolframAlpha isn’t available from other countries? I thought that one was global.

      • Nope, no Wolfram Alpha, no Maps, no looking up restaurants and services, nothing like that outside the US…! :(

        Right now Siri is basically an enhanced Voice Control feature for everyone outside the USA…! Well, not that enhanced either, since it can’t even redial the last number when told to do so…
