Are you a business owner? Have you claimed your Yelp Business page?
The WiredPages Dining & Travel page now boasts a new tool, Yelp Reviews.
The Yelp API offered several options for custom program development, or business owners may want to install pre-defined HTML snippets which will produce custom Yelp Badges for use on business sites. This is a great promotional tool if your business is well received.
During the development phase of this project, I noticed unicode escape characters in some of the "json" results data. This mainly, when requesting international business locations.
The Java Servlet used in this implementation was adapted to transform the Unicode escape sequence to the international character being represented, for display results.
Yelp, is a great resource for business owners, business patrons, and reviewers alike.
