Telecom Lead India: Nokia has launched a new app City Lens Point that allows users to search places as well as get directions and reviews to restaurants and shops.
The application is available for Nokia Lumia series of phones and other smartphones.
“Using the augmented reality app, when the user holds their device up, the City Lens overlays information about restaurants, shops, hotels and other popular destinations nearby,” Nokia India Director Sales V Ramnath.
It also allows one to make reservations or navigate to the location via turn by turn walking map, he added.
This application from Nokia’s Location service bouquet allows users to sense the world around and discover places by simply holding up their smartphone instead of having to perform web searches.
The free application is available for Lumia 800, 710 and 900, while it is also available for Nokia’s other smartphones like Nokia 700, 701 and N8.
“With Nokia City Lens PDD, we are invoking the spontaneity that lies within each one of us, inviting consumers to compete in having the most fun. The best of adventures are the unplanned ones and in PDD, there will be only one rule: no planning,” Ramnath added.
