Augmented reality iPhone app lets you annotate the world around you
LONDON - Wikitude is an augmented reality iPhone app that blends Wikipedia with real life, allowing you to view comments other people have left about the world around you.
Wikitude is available in a number of languages, including German
The app allows you to access a wide range of data on places, buildings and points of interest in your vicinity simply by looking through the camera on your iPhone 3GS.
Information from Wikipedia, local reviews from Qype and crowdsourced data from the Wikitude website appear in text boxes superimposed over the real world.
The app, which uses the compass built into the iPhone 3GS also you to tag any location with personal notes and annotations for others to find later.
Wikitude launched last month for Android-enabled mobile phones, but has been highly anticipated on the iPhone because of its practical ability of overlay useful virtual items on the real world.
