ZAGAT TO GO lets you browse up-to-the minute Zagat Ratings and Reviews for 40,000 restaurants, nightspots, hotels & shops in your neighborhood and around the world via augmented reality (coined Retina via Mr. Roboto). Poor reception? Not to worry, just use their offline sync feature. Find the cheapest restaurant nearby, find the best food, even let Zagat help you choose your own adventure (for date night, sushi night, etc.). The visual and interaction design is a little raw (some nice smooth transitions would help a lot) but the app looks like a solid choice.
Augmented reality apps continue to improve at an astonishing rate. Very nice.
