Eating Out of Your Hand

By Anne Kenderdine

Use the Live Map to find a great bar or restaurant that's just around the corner.

Now and then, we have to toot our own horn: This week, we released a new version of our iPhone application, which has improved mapping and labeling and automatically updates when we have new reviews or information on bars, clubs and restaurants.

If you haven't seen it yet, check out the Going Out Guide in the Travel category on the iTunes App store. It puts our 2,000+ bar and restaurant listings on your iPhone or iTouch and lets you read reviews and browse by neighborhood or cuisine. Coolest of all, the Live Map shows the places closest to you at that moment, and it can give you directions, too.

If you downloaded the old one, you'll definitely want to get the upgrade. We plan to keep expanding it and rolling out new features, so if you have ideas for some you'd like to see, drop us a line: e-mail mobilehelp[at]washingtonpost[dot]com, or add your comments below.

I was all ready to love the new GOG on the iPhone. I really was. Until I opened the map for the first time. I saw a google map with directional arrows and zoom buttons on it. Zoom buttons? On an iPhone?

This is a great idea with a grade school development team. Oh well, perhaps in the next upgrade.
