One of the problems I had with Urbanspoon when it came to Android was its look – I don’t like Android apps that try so desperately to look like they belong on an iPhone. And if you’re going to do that, at least make the app look good. There was also a lot of unnecessary eye candy.

All that doesn’t matter anymore, though, because they’ve updated the Android version of their application and brought its aesthetics closer to what you’d expect from other high-quality Android applications. More than that, functionality is greatly improved. You’ll be able to sign up for an Urbanspoon account and review the restaurants you come across, and it even has reservations support.

Basically, it’s more Where-ish and Yelp-ish, and that isn’t a bad thing. Take it for a spin in the Android market now.
