Yesterday, together with Zagat, we launched our nru (“near you”) Android application in the Android market in the US. This version has restaurants, nightlife and shopping provided by Zagat, and is free to download if you have a G1, HTC Magic or any other Android phone (it’s the first ever free mobile application from Zagat). Each establishment displays Zagat’s cost estimate and ratings for Food (restaurants), Appeal (nightspots) and Quality (Shops) on Zagat’s 30-point scale. We hope this will work well for those of you out in a US city looking for things to do nearby, and as always send us your comments and thoughts.
If you’re at the Google I/O conference over the next few days, you should be able to catch a demo from one of the Zagat folks there, or if just download it from the market and give it a try.
