Google just unveiled Hotpot tonight, a new feature that combines the reviews of Yelp with the handiness of Google Places. It’s incredibly easy to jump to and makes reviewing simple. I love Yelp, but I never added my recommendations, and frequent reviewers have now attained a snobby hipster reputation. With Google Hotpot, everything is on one page, and giving your brief opinion on a place never takes you away to a new page.
The site isn’t too attractive, unfortunately. Why go with a bland corporate light-blue when the name of your feature is exciting and spicy? I’m sure Google can find a better way to strike a balance.
What do you guys think of this feature? Will you be leaving Yelp anytime soon?
