"Google announced Thursday the release of Google Places for iPhone, a combination of Google's Hotspot and Google Maps that you can use to find restaurants (etc.) near you. This standalone app is effectively an effort to out-Yelp Yelp by offering search results that are ranked and affected by your own ratings and the ratings of your friends."
I use Yelp for most of my recommendations or searches, although for the last couple months I really haven't been out enough to bother. I like that it's integrated with Google Maps but I would expect no less, and it's free and available now in iTunes. I plan on using Yelp again but I think I will also give this a go, how about you? What do you use to get your recommendations for restaurants, bars, etc?
