Lazy typers and emoji enthusiasts can now take advantage of a cheat in the Yelp mobile app that allows users to search for local businesses using the icons.

While it's not entirely perfect, a quick test using the shoe, sushi, police officer and tropical drink icons yielded accurate results.

The sad emoji, however, seemed to bring up a mix of nearby places. However, a check of a smiley emoji pulled up a list of nearby delis, proving that sometimes happiness is a pastrami sandwich.

So go ahead, and let your favorite emoji set the tone for your night.
