7 Best Augmented Reality Apps for iPhone

These apps are probably the 7 Best Augmented Reality Apps, you can judge for yourself.

Yelp Monocle

Uses the iPhone’s cam and compass to place Yelp ratings over a live view of establishments. Ideal for identifying five-star dive bars and avoiding bourgie bistros. 

iPhone ARider

Streams Google maps from your iPhone to a special eyepiece you mount on your bike helmet. Now you’ll always know where you’re going. (Into a parked car?)



Look through your phone’s camera and TwittARound shows you location-stamped tweets (available from certain Twitter clients) from others nearby.

Wikitude World

One Roman ruin looks pretty much like any other after a long day of sightseeing. Train your phonecam on the rubble to pull up the site’s Wikipedia entry.

Wikitude Augmented Reality: WTC – Its not there but its there from Wikitude on Vimeo.

Layar Reality

Aim the camera on your Android phone at a cityscape and Layar coughs up data — everything from the location of bus stations and skate parks to real estate prices.


Acrossair Nearest

Lost in a public-transport labyrinth? (Tokyo commuters, we’re thinking of you.) Acrossair overlays directions and line info on the iPhone’s camera view.

TAT Augmented  Then click on Tat

Using face-recognition software from Polar Rose, this app can scan a stranger’s mug and reveal their contact info and profile stats. Creepalicious!

    Just by hearing what he’s said in past interviews, in sherdog’s current interview, and in what he’s said repetitively over and over and over again when aasked if he’s going to the UFC. It’s pretty much cut and clear and obvious that he isn’t and probably won’t ever come to the UFC. And anyone who thinks otherwise is just wishfull thinking or in denial.

    I think that an iPod is a cool Device.

    Nice blog. I got a lot of great info. I’ve been following this technology for awhile. It’s intriguing how it keeps shifting, yet some of the core factors stay the same. Have you seen much change since Google made their latest acquisition in the area?

    If he had went to the UFC he’d be in line for a title shot, taking at least 3 fights a year, and a Xyience contract.

    The cpu is called as just a bit more recent model amount but it and the GPU are likely the same speed as the 3GS. The old Touch with the similar Processor and GPU as the 3G was faster. Apart from getting the clock speed turned up higher the Touch has much less software programs to run since it

  7. Shaunna Policar says:

    The cpu is tagged as somewhat newer design amount but it and the GPU are most likely the similar speed since the 3GS. The old Touch using the same CPU and GPU as the 3G was faster. Apart from getting the clock pace turned up higher the Touch has less software programs to run because it is not a phone. It ought to do better than any iPhone to this day in overall performance.
