App Store Description

World Around Me - WAM is your local search guide.

World Around Me is a unique way to find useful places around you - such as restaurants, ATMs, pharmacies, groceries, doctors, shops, bus/metro stations and more. WAM uses your phone’s camera to give you a completely new way of exploring a place, anywhere in the world.

When you point the phone's camera in any direction, then you will see overlays of virtual signboards onto the camera view in that direction. Augmented Reality is thus used to enhance the view of your surroundings. This helps you navigate intuitively to places of your interest, using your phone’s camera.
