Zagat, Foursquare And Foodspotting Integrate
The new (premium) To-Go Guide features integrated check-in and user-submitted photography.
The move towards increased integration in the location-based service realm is clearly underway, as most recently evidenced by today's announcement that the new, $9.99 version of the Zagat To Go iPhone app includes Foursquare and Foodspotting integration.
Users will be able to check into the same restaurants they identify as a nearby Zagat recommendation directly within the application, without having to separately check in via their Foursquare app. Checkins will automatically be registered the app's new Dining Journal, allowing users to keep track of their venue visitation history (a limited check-in history is also currently available via the Foursquare app).
