Yelp is a fantastic app connecting locals and tourists with highly ranked vendors. I performed several manual tests to check the iOS version of the app. I found a couple of low-impact issues, such as cropped buttons and duplicated icons. At the same time, I stumbled upon one showstopper. The bug is difficult to reproduce, but there's still a risk the app might crash when users repeat this path. More thorough testing won't hurt.
