The catalog of great food apps continues to grow, now with another one that is specific to Los Angeles. The EAT: Los Angeles iPhone app hit the app store last night. The information on the app is the same as in the terrific guidebook, only sortable and searchable, with Google maps, touch phone calling and all the other happy iPhone bells and whistles. There are photos too, with more being added as we speak. And perhaps best of all, the app is only 99 cents until March 15th, as a launch special, after which it will be $1.99. Use that extra buck on a taco.

Says Colleen Dunn Bates, Pasadena-based publisher and editor of the L.A. food guidebook: "It has the whole book searchable and sortable by region, neighborhood, type of place, features, etc. It's not perfect, but we'll keep improving it. It's much simpler than Yelp's, but unlike others, it is curated, so you get a shorter list of our favorites, as opposed to 23,000 choices."
