Restaurant guide publisher Zagat has teamed up with Handmark, a developer/distributor of mobile applications, to launch the Zagat for Android feature. The application includes a visual overhaul and new features that make it easier to find restaurants and share dining experiences.
With access to Zagat's premium ratings and reviews for thousands of restaurants worldwide, the new Android app is designed to help people make decisions about where to eat.
Users can find restaurants with Advanced Search or find "Nearby" places with one touch. The app integrates thousands of Foodspotting dish photos and Foursquare meal tips based on other like-minded diners' menu choices. After the meal, diners can instantly review the restaurant on their mobile device.
"Zagat is based on the shared opinions of large groups of avid people," said Nina S. Zagat, co-chair, Zagat Survey. "By adding Foodspotting photos and Foursquare tips, we're further enhancing this already very social experience."
Zagat for Android is available for $9.99 in the Android Market.
