Just what you needed...

An App to let you know what you can probably already see - the nearest McDonalds, Pizza Hut or Starbucks.

Even if you had your eyes closed, you'd probably be able to find these places, as they pretty much repeat themselves every hundred yards or so.

Still, this is the future. And I mustn't be too sarcastic, even if the first thing you see on the link coming up is the nightmare-ish Monopoly board shown in the picture above.

The new Metro Paris Subway App (v 3.0) has jumped off its underground train, climbed the stairs and hopped aboard the augmented reality bandwagon (there's that sarcasm again but bear with me.)

Yes folks, in addition to keeping you up-to-date with all the latest goings on the Metro tracks beneath the city, the new Metro Paris Subway App now also displays the latest stations and points of interest when you're above ground, overlaid on top of your iPhone screen's display from your camera lens, in an augmented reality style and fashion.

And if you're still here after reading that paragraph-long sentence, then you might like to click the link to find out what on earth I'm on about:
