AUGMENTED REALITY
************************************************************
London Bus Your New Eye. This is a unique augmented reality functionality that enables you to see the nearest stations and POI with iPhone's camera live view. Elements located at a distance less than 1km (0,621miles) only will be displayed.

- iPhone vertical position: 360-degree view of all stations nearby your location, updated in real time as you walk in the streets.

- iPhone horizontal position: List of all nearest stations. When a station is selected, a red arrow (compass) is displayed to show the direction and the distance to that point.

IMPORTANT : This application requires an active Internet connection to retrieve data. You also need to turn on "Location Services" option in the settings of your iPhone.

Verdict:

The limited scope of the app means that it is only likely to be of real interest to tourists sticking to the centre of London - but what it does, it does well.
