Foodie heaven (for some)

Read Zagat reviews for restaurants, nightspots, hotels, and shops on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

Zagat's iPhone debut has all the ingredients for making a great restaurant and nightspot ratings application for the iPhone--venerable content taken straight from the Zagat Survey, a phone number you can tap to initiate a call, a Web site link, OpenTable reservations and photos when available, and filters for searching by category and sorting results by ratings criteria. Yet somehow, the whole is slightly less than the sum of its parts.

This latest version handles GPS data much better than the debut build, a marked improvement. Now if it could just throw in an in-application browser for easily returning to the application after you peruse a menu, and an advanced search field to dictate all your criteria at once, Zagat To Go for iPhone will have the power to win over not just Zagat die-hards, but would-be foodies to boot.
