App Store Description

Looksee AR for Edinburgh, Scotland, is an Augmented Reality (AR) viewer used to find places of interest from close up to 10km away directly within your phone's camera view and add fun, knowledge and interest to your adventures and tours.

Ideal for both tourists and locals wishing to explore and find out more about their surroundings and beyond: whether by foot, bicycle,car, taxi or Uber!

It's simple to use - you just point and go! It includes a choice of Map or Satellite Image in view and a Search function to help locate things.

Once downloaded no wi-fi or cellular network is necessary, so you can use when out and about in Edinburgh, even when there is no or poor signal coverage.

This version, for Edinburgh and the Lothians, Scotland, locates places in and around Edinburgh City Centre, the wider Edinburgh Area and the Pentland Hills. It reaches a rectangle stretching to North Berwick at its northern most edge, east past Dunbar, west past Whitburn and south past West Linton. In total an area of over 4,000 km2.

And you can experience a taste of Edinburgh without being there because the App includes the option to simulate being in several places in the region, which can be accessed from the start up launch menu when out of the region.

All areas within the region are covered including Armadale, Bathgate, Bonnyrigg, Broxburn, Dalkeith, Dunbar, East Calder, Edinburgh, Gullane, Haddington, Linlithgow, Livingston, Loanhead, Mid Calder, North Berwick, Penicuik, Port Seaton, Prestonpans, Tranent, Uphall, West Calder and Whitburn.

In fact there are around 5,000 places of interest viewable within the App including Edinburgh Castle, the Pentland Hills, North Berwick Law and Bass Rock.

Categories that can be viewed and selected include Tourist Attractions, Hills, Lakes, Parks & Woodlands, Cities, Towns, Suburban Areas, Villages & Hamlets, cafes, Restaurants, Cafes, Airports, Train & Major Bus Stations, Municipal Buildings, Places of Worship, Historic Sites and Museums & Arts.

Some of the helpful Looksee features include:

- Interactive objects (that you can touch for more information on them)
- Magic EYE (to declutter the visuals and select only objects within)
- Interactive 3D Satellite or Map image in view (can select which or disable completely)
- Search menu (with on-screen directional arrow and indicator graphics)
- Filters menu (using which the categories of points of interest you wish to display can be easily filtered out or selected)
- Distance slider (for an interactive depth of view filter up to 10km)
- Zoom (using an on screen pinch to zoom gesture)
- Snap-shot camera (for annotating your photos)
- Video recorder for saving and sharing interesting places on social media (accessed by holding the camera icon for 1 second)
- Radar view of everything around you on map (hold face down)
