Nearest Tube Augmented Reality App for iPhone 3GS by Acrossair
Nearest Tube developed by Acrossair is one of the first augmented reality apps to go live in the iPhone AppStore. This amazing new application tells Londoners where their nearest tube station is via their iPhones video function.
When you load the app, holding it flat, all 13 lines of the London underground are displayed in coloured arrows. By tilting the phone upwards, you will see the nearest stations: what direction they are in relation to your location, how many kilometres and miles away they are and what tube lines they are on. If you continue to tilt the phone upwards, you will see stations further away, as stacked icons. Only available to Apple iPhone 3GS users.
