Is Zagat trying to out-Yelp Yelp? Probably, and the app certainly offers new, competitive services while trying to accomplish its aim.
Earlier this month we offered up a sneak peek of Zagat to Go 3.0 for iPhone. On Wednesday, the premium app for browsing restaurant and nightlife ratings ($9.99) became available in the App Store on iTunes and on your iPhone or iPod Touch.
Zagat also arguably one-ups Yelp by offering an offline mode, and by adding complete reviews from the phone itself. But be forewarned--offline mode takes up a chunk of memory and is slowww to download, and anyone other than die-hard Zagat fans may be loathe to shell out $10 for quippy reviews.
