ZAGAT is a popular restaurant guide that has released a new BlackBerry app that’s optimized for OS 6 and touchscreen interfaces. The app is going for a really strange price point and market since it’s priced at $9.99 and all of its competitors are free to download. Poynt, for example, offers location-based listings for restaurants and lets you dial and discover restaurants with relative ease. Yelp has a free BlackBerry app as well, and offers very helpful reviews. Perhaps ZAGAT thinks their reviews are so influential they can charge $10 for the app.
You can purchase ZAGAT for BlackBerry for $10 in App World or get more information from mobile.zagat.com/blackberry.
As part of the launch, ZAGAT is offering consumers the chance to win dinner for two! The first 500 people to Tweet “Download a free trial of Zagat for BlackBerry! http://zagat.bz/mFrVMW #ZagatBB” will be entered to win dinner for 2 at their favorite Zagat-Rated restaurant (valued at $200).
