You have to shake the crap out of your phone... the rumor sites say that it only takes 3 shakes, but some say it takes as many as 10 to get the easter egg to pop. It's not officially released yet.

I've shaken until I have carpal tunnel and nothing.  Do I need to be on a particular screen in the Yelp app?  I think this is a late April Fool's Day joke....

It took me a minute to actually believe this thread  ROFLMAO  The app looks smokin hot but tarding out on a street corner throwing an iEppy is a pretty hilarious image Smiley

But I'd whip it out every time I went out to eat.  Someday restaurants with 1-star reviews may have a very short lifespan

interestingly you only turn it on once. I figured it was a "shake every time" kind of thing and you would see idiots standing around in shopping malls, shaking their phones and cursing at them.
