New Zagat iOS app: Tap into tailored, trustworthy dining recommendations -- wherever you may be
July 26, 2016
When it comes to advice on finding a great meal, everyone’s an expert (with a food pic to prove it). For more than 35 years, people who love to eat have looked to Zagat for trustworthy guidance on everything from the best food to the right decor to the quality of service. Zagat’s recipe is simple: we look at lots of opinions from other diners, so you don’t have to. Then our editors carefully craft reliable restaurant reviews, helping you discover the newest openings in your area, share your own experiences and get inspired by the tastiest trends nationwide.
While the Zagat brand has evolved over time, we thought it was time to cook up an update to our iOS app to provide our foodie fans with the freshest, most relevant content -- while on the go. Beyond giving our logo a fresh coat of paint and new look, we redesigned the app so that it’s centered around you. You know where you are and what you’re hungry for, and your dining app should too -- so based on your location and the time of day, our app serves up recommended places nearby.
And the next time you need an izakaya for your friend’s 30th birthday or want to find the newest downtown hot spot, you can search by cuisine or by tapping into our interactive neighborhood maps. Then, sort by rating, price or proximity -- or filter by new places.
While the new iOS app is bursting with upgrades, Zagat still works the way it always has: by gathering the wisdom of avid diners and distilling the consensus view into that one crystalline review you need. We continue to collect separate ratings for Food, Decor and Service so you can get granular on a restaurant’s virtues, but we’ve simplified them in a new, easy-to-read and rate
The new Zagat iPhone app is available today in the
. Take it out for lunch and share your dining experience with the rest of the Zagat community.
