About this app

★ Google Play Awards 2016 Winner ★
★ Google Play Best apps of 2017 ★

World Around Me is a unique way to find useful places around you - such as restaurants, ATMs, 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.

Features
✔︎ Search for places in 31 categories.
✔︎ Find all kinds of places around you using keyword search.
✔︎ Get useful info such as: WiFi availability, accepts credit cards, takes reservations, has outdoor seating.
✔︎ Check out user reviews, directions, phone numbers, opening hours, price tier, photos and more.
✔︎ Choose between camera, list and map views to navigate.
✔︎ Rank places around you by distance or importance.
✔︎ Get the real-time distance to a point of interest. Find out how near you are to a place even as you make your way towards it.

If I could apply less than 1 star, I would. Add the ads but don't force an upgrade at Aud$15 for an app that I use perhaps once per year. OVERPRICED & MISSING THE OPTION TO CONTINUE WITH ADS. If an option to continue with ads is not provided next time I use this app I will be uninstalling it. Google works just as good and is totally free.

Used to be very good, but now it wants you to upgrade before giving any information, Euro 9.99 is far too expensive, especially when there are similarly good apps around, many free or at a reasonable cost, I understand the need to make money, but this price is far too high, so I am unistalling, not the best way to go from 5 star to 1 star!

This is the closest app I've used to the CityLens app on my Lumia back in the day of Windows Phone great app, keep up the good work guys. Oh in the "Tell us more" option it asked about booking flights, I guess that would be nice, but I don't think it's necessary.
