#AskStacey: Yelp app helps you explore your city

Yelp App

SAN ANTONIO -- If you're walking around a new area and looking for a place to eat or shop, the Yelp app lays out your options.

I asked you to send in your questions, and Claire wants to know if there's an app to help you find restaurants near you and their menus.

The Yelp app can help you make a quick decision of where to go.

"You can use this not just here in San Antonio, but anywhere in the world," Yelp San Antonio community and marketing manager Tomas Rey said.

Select the 'monocle' feature to show options for restaurants and stores around you in real time.

"Not only can you use it for food and drinks, but you can find a local barbershop and you can find landmarks. It's really a good way for you to explore a city," Rey said.

The app uses augmented reality, so you can see places pop up around you through your phone or tablet's camera.

You can tap the location to pull up menus and reviews.

In addition to the monocle feature, the app also allows you to filter through locations based on factors like hours of operation and whether there is a Pokestop nearby.

If you have a computer problem, a question about an app or you want to find out about more online tools, tweet me at #AskStacey. You can also email me at askstacey@kens5.com or find me on Facebook at Facebook.com/askstacey5, and I'll discover an answer.
