Wikitude – iOS app review

Wikitude iPhone App


Published: March 19, 2014
Link: iTunes
Cost: Free

Bang for buck: It’s free!
Ease of use:
The looks:

Voted as one of the best Augmented Reality browsers by Augmented Planet and CNN, Wikitude will help you find restaurant reviews from TripAdvisor and Yelp and details about any attraction from Wikipedia.

Just point your smartphone camera to the neighborhood and information will appear on the screen, hovering over relevant locations. Point at a bank note and the app will convert that currency to multiple currencies.

We tried using this app in multiple locations in Los Angeles and San Francisco, and it displayed correct information at some places for some businesses, while not showing anything for most of the places.
