Just a small tidbit from the iOS 5.1 release regarding Siri and Yelp: now, when you click a Yelp listing in Siri, you are taken to Yelp’s App Store app rather than nowhere.

Well, last week, Apple launched iOS 5.1 and with it, an updated Siri and Yelp integration on iPhone. Now when searching for a recommendation on local businesses, Siri will return Yelp-reviewed businesses and when you tap the star rating (BOOM!) you are immediately taken to the Yelp business profile page. Oh, the places you’ll go… now that you’ll have faster access to Yelp review highlights, quick tips, hours of operation, address, phone number, photos — the list goes on.

This is seemingly a nice addition to Siri as it gives Yelp fans a quicker way to access more details on the place they are looking for. The video above from Yelp demonstrates the minor enhancement. If you don’t have the app it takes you to the App Store download page.
