Augmented Reality app for iPhone helps you find the nearest subway

16 07 2009

This is pretty awesome.  A new app for the iPhone uses the camera, GPS, and compass to visually show you the direction and distance of the nearest NYC subway stations.   Since it needs the compass to detect your orientation, this will only work on the new iPhone 3GS (sorry 3G and 2G users).   I can’t wait to see what other cool apps will emerge in the augmented reality space;  iPhone is a perfect platform for these applications.

The app,  New York Nearest Subway, is developed by Acrossair, and is pending approval by Apple in the App Store.
