New application brings restaurants to iPhone users

Both the French and European guides are available for iPhone

Those recycling used mobiles to buy an Apple iPhone 3G have been given a new way to find places to eat.

Users of the multimedia device can download an application from either the App Store or iTunes that lists all the restaurants featured in the 2009 Michelin Guide.

ViaMichelin provides access to a number of search options, to locate nearby eateries that match the individual's requirements - as well as links that allow the venue to be contacted directly.

"Whether it's a neighbourhood eatery or a Michelin-starred restaurant, the new service offers instant access to detailed profile descriptions for each listing as well as local directions and maps for each restaurant," the group said.

In addition to a guide that covers the whole of Europe, iPhone users can also download a specialist listing that covers eateries in France.

The news could inspire food fans to recycle their used mobiles in favour of the latest Apple device.
