Nokia Augmented Reality App out of beta

Nokia originally launched its augmented reality app City Lens 
back in May, and now the app is finally out of beta. City Lens uses your device’s camera to display nearby restaurants, stores, and other notable locations in augmented reality style, along with important information about each location — including reviews, directions, hours of operation, and more.

And when you’re not in the mood to have your reality augmented, you can also check out the same information through both a list and map view. If you’ve got a Lumia Windows Phone, you can pick up the app by visiting the source link below on your device.

Augmented Reality Apps To reach 2.5 billion downloads by 2017

A new report from Juniper Research predicts that mobile augmented reality (AR) apps could reach over 2.5bn downloads per year by 2017 as consumer awareness improves and apps for retail and entertainment drive adoption.
AR apps let users take an alternative look at the world around them through their mobile device’s camera enhanced with a digital overlay. Retailers could use these to let customers virtually try on an item of clothing in-store or find out more about a product simply by pointing their phone at it. Some developers, like WowWee, combine physical toys with games on smartphones and tablets using AR, and Juniper predicts an increasing number of these apps to come.
