Google today announced the launch of Google Places with Hotpot for iPhone. The platform was already available to Android users through the Google Maps application (only in English).
?Google Places allows you to quickly search for nearby places and customize the results based on your ratings. The application makes it easier and faster to find the best places ?explains the Mountain View giant.
The Google Hotpot integration, which can also be accessed on your desktop, uses your personal and friends' ratings to recommend locations. Similar to Foursquare, the company invites users to evaluate businesses and describe experiences.
?We realized the importance of finding places that you will like while walking around, no matter what mobile device you use. Google Places with Hotpot not only helps you find nearby places where you are, as it offers the best places to go, personalizing your search results ?.
