Description

Nearest Wiki is your very own information portal in Augmented Reality view.

This is the app for you whether you are interested in brushing up on your general knowledge or are keen to learn about your surroundings in a fun interactive way. And it works in any country, anywhere in the world.

Ever walked past a building and wanted to know more? Diminish your unknown with the nearest wiki!

Great idea but needs many improvements

I've used this app on and off for a while, first on an 3GS and now on an iPhone 4. Nice that you can scroll a stack of pages that appear in the same direction your facing. The Wikipedia pages come up as dark translucent boxes with a fine white font but the text can be particularly difficult to read if you have too much background detail in your camera view. There is also currently no way of changing the font weight or size to make the text more readable. It would be great if the page background went opaque when you touched on it or may be even zoomed in slightly as well. There also don't seem to have been many updates over time.
A pity really... a great idea wasted so far!

Great idea but needs work

It does what is says it does but feels more like a gimmick than a practical application. You also feel like a prat waving your iPhone about like some kind of magic act extra :)

Note: the map that pops up when you hold the phone flat has stopped working for me and now just shows blue, this happen with anyone else?
