Android now lets you search for hotels and restaurants you can actually afford

Restaurant filter in Android search

So far, Android search hasn't been very discriminating when it comes to hotels and restaurants; finding a posh eatery one block away is no use if you can't afford it. Google is about to provide relief to wallets everywhere, though, as it just updated the mobile search app to include filters à la Foursquare or Yelp. Ask for a place to eat or stay and you can narrow the results by price range, cuisine style, rating and hours. The upgraded search only works in the US at the moment, but it should eventually be a boon to anyone who's looking for a cheap bite or a late-night crash pad.
