ZAGAT Restaurant Guide Launches New BlackBerry App



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).

Zagat To Go updated to version 6.0


ZagatA user on the Pinstack forums noted that the city guide software Zagat To Go has been updated to version 6.0. The software allows you to find over 30,000 restaurants, golf courses, hotels, and other locations for the BlackBerry user on the move. You can also use Zagat to Go to automatically dial the number for the spot you’ve chosen, read reviews, get directions, and quite a lot more. Version 6.0 adds a redesigned interface as well as favorites, wish lists and the ability to browse an alphabetical list of all locations in an area. A 14-day free trial is available or you can purchase a one year subscription for $29.95. They offered a 1500 free subscriptions to BlackBerry users last July, so we’ll keep any eye out for anything similar to celebrate this new release.


Zagat offers 1,500 free Zagat to Go subscriptions for BlackBerry


Lady and the TrampHere’s something that just popped up on our radar that may be of interest to all you fine-dining fans out there. Effective today, Zagat is offering 1,500 365-day subscriptions to Zagat to Go for BlackBerry. Zagat to Go is a restaurant and entertainment guide for smartphones that gives users access to ratings and reviews of thousands of restaurants, nightspots and hotels throughout the world as well as the best US golf courses. Sounds way better than slumming it like our friends to the left (although possibly less romantic).

There are a few minor caveats before you can get on your way to the guide goodness, however. The subscriptions are first come, first serve, so get there fast. Also, the offer is not open to existing Zagat to Go subscribers, and there is a limit of one per person. To redeem your free subscription, head on over to:


and register. When you do, make sure you tell them that the ‘Cool sent you.
