Google has updated Maps for Android to version 4.7. The new version of Maps adds one major new feature: the ability for users to rate local businesses while out and about. A new Hotpots home screen widget accompanies the updated app, from which users can provide overall ratings as well as separate ratings for food, service, and atmosphere. Google noted that users' recommendations will be incorporated into search results, which Google says will help it suggest venues that users are more likely to enjoy. Last, users can also tap their friends' recommendations. The new version of Google Maps for Android is a free download from the Android Market. Google said it will soon offer its Places app for the iPhone, and iPhone users can make use of the new Google Maps features through the browser version of Maps.

Isn't it HotPots?

I could swear I read that it was called Hot Pots, not Hot Spots. Pot, as in reference to what you cook food in, or that stuff that makes you want to eat food.
I double checked, and I am right. Visit google.com/hotpots from any android device.
