Zagat’s application for BlackBerry lets you search, view, rate, map, and make reservations for restaurants across the nation. You can also access Zagat’s famous restaurant reviews, which is what separates it from the countless other apps that have the same features. It’s a great app to have while traveling, and packs a lot of useful information about restaurants you might even be familiar with.

The latest version for BlackBerry brings a whole host of new features to an already high-quality app, most notably location based search and the ability to make reservations within the app. With location based search results, you can get ratings and more information on restaurants that are nearby, and make a reservation, of course.

More new features include a very convenient map view, meaning you can view Zagat-Rated restaurants on a map, for your location or within a search. The app has also added support for the latest BlackBerry devices, which translates into BlackBerry 6 support.

The biggest question mark over Zagat’s BlackBerry app has been its price, which can only be justified by its brand name restaurant reviews. Plenty of free apps, such as Poynt, Where and Open Table all pack the other features. You can download the app from Zagat’s official website for $1.99 per month or $9.99 per year. However, they do offer a 14 day free trial, so you can give it a try with no commitment. It’s available for all BlackBerry devices running OS 4.5+.
