Augmented Reality France covers all France cities. Augmented Reality France is a new application that enables you to visualize Points of Interest (POI) located in your nearby environment in France, thanks to a unique augmented reality technology using the iPhone camera. POI databases include restaurants, WiFi hotspots, hotels, metro and bus stations (Paris Metro, Paris Bus, Lyon Metro, Marseille Metro), etc. Elements located at a distance less than 1km (0,621miles) only will be displayed on the screen. Fast Food (POI) ✓ Mcdonald's ✓ Subway ✓ Quick ✓ Brioche Dorée ✓ KFC ✓ Pizza Hut ✓ Paul ✓ Lina's ✓ Flunch ✓ Pomme de Pain ✓ Le Paradis du fruit Restaurants (POI) ✓ Domino's Pizza ✓ Bistro Romain ✓ Chez Clément ✓ El Rancho ✓ Hippopotamus ✓ Indiana café ✓ Pizza del Arte ✓ Pizza Pino ✓ Léon de Bruxelles ✓ Buffalo Grill Coffee, Pastry & Ice Cream (POI) ✓ Starbucks ✓ Columbus Café ✓ Nespresso ✓ Ladurée ✓ Berthillon ✓ Häagen-Dazs ✓ Baskin-Robbins ✓ Ben & Jerry's Leisure (POI) ✓ Vélib' ✓ WiFi ✓ Taxi ✓ Tourist locations Accommodation (POI) ✓ Ibis ✓ Best Western ✓ Formule 1 ✓ Novotel ✓ Mercure ✓ Sofitel Subway stations (POI) (available through in-app purchase) ✓ Métro de Paris ✓ Bus de Paris (main bus stations only) ✓ Métro de Lyon ✓ Métro de Marseille - Vertical position: 360-degree view of all POI nearby your location, updated in real time as you walk in the streets. - Horizontal position: List of all nearest POI. When a POI is selected, a blue arrow (compass) is displayed to show the direction and the distance to that POI. - The application is fully compatible with Google Maps. It is possible to locate the nearest POI from your position on Google Maps within the application.

  • Just a prototype

    I really like the idea of this app, but it's very weakly implemented - little more than a proof of concept. Unless you want to find McDonalds, Starbucks or the like, it's of very little utility. If you do travel all the way to Paris and decide you must track down Starbucks, it can't even tell you which one's closest - you'll have to scroll through the list and figure out for yourself which distance is the shortest one. Along the way the distance counter is unreliable and may stick or jump around wildly as you approach your destination. And should you lock your iPhone as you walk, it will forget where you're headed and force you to search through the list afresh. It's a shame they haven't put more polish into this app, because it's proof of a really good concept. Sorry Presselite - I really wanted to enjoy this app, but in its current state I don't think it's ready for release.
