Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia has dished out its Live View augmented reality app for its N9 smartphone.
The Live View app was originally launched for the Symbian platform but, Nokia has now decided to port it to N9, using the Qt platform. Qt allows developers to create apps which are compatible with both Symbian and Meego platforms.
"Following on the success of the Live View app for Symbian, we have developed another Qt version specifically for the Nokia N9," the Nokia Live View team wrote in a blog post.
The Live View app allows users to view the world through the smartphone camera, overlaying the image with information like street names and names of establishments nearby. The app can also be used for navigation if looking for places near users' current location.
Users are required to open an account or log-in before they start using the reality browser app. Once done, the app will let them search for places and then 'connect' them to things that they are looking for, where and when they want it - be it hotels, restaurants, etc.
