Layar Augmented Reality app now available on the iPhone 3GS

It was only a matter of time before Layar, the well known augmented reality application on the Android platform, came out on the iPhone. Obviously the app is only compatible with the 3GS (other iPhones and iPod Touch don’t have a digital compass). Now let’s see if it ever sees the light on Windows Mobile given that the latest Windows Phones like Samsung’s Omnia II and HTC HD2 have digital compass on board.

You heard it here first! The German EMI page has a link to the iTunes store to download the new The Beatles Stereo Box. The iTunes link doesn’t seem to fully work yet though. Looks like a mistake on EMI’s part though….

Metro Paris augmented reality application for iPhone

Following the release of Layar on Android smartphones here comes Metro Paris a french application ($0,79 and works in English too) which used augmented reality to help find POIs and train stations is the french capital. Similar to Layyr it uses the digital compass (and GPS) on the iPhone 3GS when you point your phone in a direction and displays POIs icons and arrows overlaid in the camera viewfinder. The app also works on non 3GS iPhones but the AR part is disabled due to the lack of compass. The application also supports Push notifications. Check this video demo:

Windows Mobile Marketplace Web interface screenshots

The boys over at Pocketnow got their hands on some (blury) screens of what appears to be the web interface of the upcoming Windows Marketplace for Mobile. As Brandon says the advantage of the web interface over a native app like iTunes is that you can’t connect to it on any PC in the world, buy an app and get the download queued on your phone or just manage you account etc.

New WebOS update for Pre is out. Support for iTunes sync is back.

Well, it looks like Palm is fighting Apple back. The new WebOS update brings back support for iTunes sync in the current version (8.2.1) among other enhancements.

“Pre” and “business” just got a lot friendlier! Today we released Palm webOS 1.1, which brings several additions to our support for Exchange ActiveSync (EAS), including remote wipe, PIN/password requirements, inactivity timeout, improved certificate handling, and more. You can find more details about how Palm webOS fits into your business environment here.

In addition to these treats for business users, Version 1.1 also includes a few other goodies for everyone — like support for emoticons in the messaging app, and the ability to set “person reminders” in the contacts app (next time you get a message or phone call from that person, a message pops up showing you a reminder to ask them about their vacation in Maui — cool, huh?). Oh, and one more thing: Palm webOS 1.1 re-enables Palm media sync. That’s right — you once again can have seamless access to your music, photos and videos from the current version of iTunes (8.2.1).
