Worldmate 3.0 for Blackberry has been released with a great new feature: local dining and entertainment search powered by Yelp.com.
Yelp isn’t integrated very well though. In fact, you’ll just be redirected to Yelp’s website when you click on a search result. Hopefully we’ll see a full integration in later updates; if for anything, to improve the overall ease of use and user experience.
The GPS-enabled application only integrates Yelp for searches in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada right now. Hopefully the list of supported countries will grow in the future as well.
Aside from my couple of quibbles, there are a few more excellent added features to Worldmate 3.0 for Blackberry as well. The Calendar Sync automatically changes time zones, the hotel booking engine now has thumbnails and special offers, static maps have been upgraded to Blackberry’s dynamic, movable maps, and users can reserve train tickets from within Amtrak, Euro Star, and TheTrainLine.
