Although Android users generally get the jump on their Apple-toting compatriots when it comes to new Google apps, the search giant eventually relents. This week, Google unveiled its latest offering for the iPhone, Google Places, a native app that lets users find nearby restaurants, cafes, shops and bars and review them via Hotpot, Google’s new recommendation system.

Like other social media fads (Foursquare, we’re looking at you), Google Places interacts with contacts, keeping track of where friends are hanging out at any given time, and how they feel about it.

Google Places is available free over the App Store now.
