Google-owned restaurant ratings guide Zagat has just put out version 1.0 of its Android app on the Google Play Store. A free download for devices running Android 2.2 and above, Zagat allows you to browse restaurants nearby based upon ratings, cuisine type or features. The app also has the ability to add your own ratings and reviews, and even make reservations at certain restaurants.

Coverage is limited to a selection of U.S. cities at the moment -- the full list can be found on the app's Google Play Store listing -- so international readers may want to skip this one.

Also note that the new Zagat for Android now signs in through Google+, so you'll need a G+ account to get started with this app. To get downloading, hit the Google Play link up above, and be sure to let us know what you think of it in the comments.

That's my question as well. I'm under the assumption that it's already integrated into Google Maps/Local. Would be great to know if there's an advantage in downloading the app too.

Zagat is crowd sourced and people who have zagat login can use this app. and maps dont have zagat login but use google login.

I loved the stand-alone Zagat app. Best $10 I ever spent.

Since Google bought the app, & tried to integrate it into its maps & G+ (yuch!), its MUCH less useful. Worst changes are: no info on operating hours, bar vs BYO, & NO favorites capabilty.
