Nokia City Lens Beta Now Available

Advertisement

We’ve seen the Nokia City Lens app demo’d a while back at CES, but now you can actually try it out for yourself. Nokia City Lens Beta is now available on your Nokia Windows Phone if you know how to find it. The app’s main feature is its augmented reality lens. After you start the app you’ll see a list of subjects to explore such as food or shopping. Then once you select one, you can hold the phone up perpendicular to the ground (in landscape mode) like you would to take a picture. That will activate the augmented reality mode and as you turn it will point out different locations where they exist and in what direction. If you lay the phone flat down (pointing at the ground) a map will appear showing you the locations of all the places you wanted to explore. Then if you hold the phone in portrait orientation, you’ll see a list of the locations along with navigation buttons that will give you more info like directions or phone numbers as well as the ability to pin the location to your start screen.
