Nokia City Lens is one of the most exciting mobile apps being launched by Nokia for their Lumia branded devices.
The company has just announced that the app is out of beta testing and is now available through the Windows Phone Marketplace.
As expected, it is exclusive to Nokia Lumia branded models.
Nokia City Lens is Nokia’s location-based augmented reality application. Using the phone’s camera viewfinder, Nokia City Lens provides an augmented reality overlay view of buildings and instantly highlights places of interest. It basically turns sight into the next interface for searching the world around you. The app then provides information about each building or landmark in the area giving the user an at-a-glance understanding of what restaurants, museums, shops and others places of interest are nearby.
