Nokia City Lens has is an augmented reality app that allows you to see and interact with the world around you in a completely different way.
  Five things that we love about nokia city lens

  •  Find places of interest
  • Search for specific places such as restaurants or shops
  • Get contact info and walking or driving directions to the places that interest you
  • Share places with your friends
  • The Nokia City Lens service is free of charge. The latest version offers up improved transport features,so one can get around whole lot easier.
The latest version also offers up improved transport features, so you can get around a whole lot easier. It’s just been updated to Nokia City Lens version 1.1 and with it has finally come out of Beta Labs and become a fully       fledged app in its own right.
Two ways of using:
1. Use the camera on your Nokia Lumia. Hold your Nokia Lumia up and the app switches to augmented reality mode, where you’ll see icons overlay the street ahead of you. In this way you can simply walk towards the most convenient or easy to access location.
2.The second method is a little more traditional but allows you to see locations further afield. Rather than holding your Nokia Lumia up, simply hold it flat in your hand and the map view of Nokia City Lens kicks into action. As it’s not showing you the just the street ahead you can see locations further away, which may be more appropriate depending on what you’re after.
