New Yelp iPhone App To Have Virtual Badges

The new Yelp iPhone application is going to compete with Foursquare head-on.  According to a company blog post, Yelp will have virtual badges and a royalty hierarchy similar to the Mayor concept on Foursquare too.  Yelp hierarchy includes the Duke, Duchess, Baron, and King of specific venues.  Yelp submitted this version of the app for approval recently.
