Zagat to Go version 5.0 released by Handmark


You can tell it’s getting close to holiday time when your inbox gets flooded with new software releases. Actually, I’m not sure if the two are related, alls I know is that there’s been a lot of activity going on in BlackBerry applications lately.

Received an email from Handmark announcing their release of Zagat to Go version 5.0, put together with the fine folks at Zagat Survey. For those unaware, Zagat is the world’s leading provider of consumer survey-based dining, travel and leisure information.

“This substantial update adds Hotel and Resorts Guide listings and an America’s Top Golf Courses Guide to what was already the most comprehensive Restaurant and Entertainment Guide for BlackBerry. Other updated content includes the 2007 Zagat guides for America’s Top Restaurants, New York City Restaurants, San Francisco Restaurants and Los Angeles Restaurants.”

Enthralling. Is it just me, or is it becoming tougher and tougher to turn off your BlackBerry or leave it at home with all of the great little applications that are surfacing these days? Digressions aside, Zagat to Go is available from the Handmark website for $29.99 for new purchasers, or $24.99 as an upgrade for existing customers. Check it out. Let us know what you think.
