Yelp today has joined the long list of companies that have debuted apps for Apple Watch. In a blog post this evening, the popular ratings and reviews app shared the first screenshots of its Apple Watch app. The Yelp app for Apple Watch provides the majority of the information you’re used to seeing in the company’s other iOS apps, just on your wrist.

On Apple Watch, Yelp shows nearby restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and other businesses alongside their ratings, reviews, price ranges, and distances from your current location. The main interface of the app shows four options for restaurants, bars, coffee & tea, and hot & new locations. Tapping on one will bring you to another screen with nearby results that fit your selected criteria. Yelp is also a partner with Apple Maps, with its reviews integrated directly into iOS devices.

Earlier today, Yahoo unveiled updates for four of its apps that will add support Apple Watch. They include Yahoo Weather, Yahoo Sports Fantasy, Yahoo News Digest, and Yahoo News Hong Kong. 1Password and Workflow have also both recently unveiled Apple Watch support. Pandora also announced its plans for Apple Watch recently, as did a plethora of health-based apps. You can view our full breakdown of the best Apple Watch apps here.
