In 2011 Google bought the restaurant review site Zagat. Now, with the relaunch of Zagat’s app, the service is free to use without registering for the first time. The service is getting an across-the-board update from its website to its apps for iOS and Android.
At the moment Zagat’s relaunch only covers nine cities, providing reviews of restaurants and nightlife attractions. Google has plans to add more cities but currently only offers Austin, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C..
The relaunched Zagat app includes the standard reviews and ratings along with a few new additions. It provides articles and video content daily based on the locations you’re searching, along with the ability to check menus or make reservations through OpenTable.
If you live in or are about to visit any of the nine included cities give it a test. The app is available for free in the iTunes store.
