Truth be told, I’m a big Yelper. Whenever I’m away from home and visiting a new city, a rely on the opinions of the locals to tell me where I should (and shouldn’t) be eating. It’s been almost 2 years since Google acquired Zagat back in 2011 and for many, it seemed they weren’t doing much with it. If you were worried the service would go the way of Reader, Buzz, or Wave, fear not — Google is finally giving the Android application (and service) some needed TLC.
Rebuilt from the ground up, Android users can now find the new and improved Zagat application in the Google Play Store. In a first, the service is now 100% free for Google+ users. The app still features Zagat’s trusted 30-point reviews for restaurants and in the coming months, expect expansion to 50 additional US and international cities in the future, along with the inclusion of nightlife and shopping destinations.
Looks like everything is still on the up-and-up, and if Yelp’s “untrusted” reviews weren’t quite cutting it, might wanna look to Zagat to help you find those new dining spots.
