Everything you love about the Zagat Survey comes to BlackBerry--the comprehensive list of fine restaurants in your city, the ratings for food, decor, ambiance, and a listing for average price per person. There are also, of course, the pithy user-generated descriptions that the Zagat Survey has claimed as its hallmark.
Version 6.0 vastly improves upon the surprisingly elementary interface of the previous version with a comelier aesthetic. Usability has also seen improvements in the form of a Favorites list to dog-ear establishments. Equally welcome is the addition of ratings and cost information to top level search results and sorting filters. A drop-down menu eases the transition between search categories for a city (restaurants, nightlife, golf) and another button marked "Change" switches easily between metropolitan areas.
While the app does an adequate job mapping a location, getting directions, and initiating a call, Version 6.0 is still inexplicably absent of a useful hyperlink to the restaurant's Web site and the capability to SMS a listing to a pal--not a worry if you're content with adding e-mail addresses manually.)
ZAGAT TO GO for BlackBerry includes Zagat Survey ratings and rankings for over 40,000 places to eat, drink, stay & play. Wireless content access means you always have the latest info. Browse listings by cuisine/category, neighborhood, feature and Zagat's well-known top lists; sort by Zagat ratings as well as cost Advanced Search helps you find exactly what you're looking for. Find your way there with full-color downloadable maps and directions. Easily click to call an establishment to make a reservation. Version 7.0 allows searching within specified location determined by GPS, in the vicinity of metro areas, by postal codes.
