Any good mobile apps or e-food guidebook resourcesfor Italy?

Im making a decision in the next week on a new smartphone (my first, slow adapter) and wonder if anyone has a comment on good dining and food related apps available either for the i-phone or android . Language does not matter to me but I need more data to on the quality of the available apps to choose the phone.

Brownie points for apps which tell you good restaurants (not any restaurants but good ones) near where you are based on GPS and also give opening hours/holiday/closing day info. (this is what I had been hoping CH could be...sadly no, not at present)

Also, any e-books guidebooks to recommend? I was hoping not to have to carry heavy guidebooks along or copy them (such as Downie and Gambero Rosso Rome, for example) but it does not seem that publishers providing e-versions of other than the most commercial/massmarket books or updating their e-books as fast as print versions (Rome is out for 2012 but not 2013)

thanks for any help you can give!
