Finding local businesses in the UK is now easier than ever and a lot more fun, with Yell’s Augmented Reality App for iPhone 3GS and newer devices.
Designed to help you find businesses within walking distance, this App allows you to ‘see’ local shops, offices, restaurants and other useful places through the iPhone’s camera viewer - even if they’re around the corner or in the next street.
The App has been designed by Yell’s innovation centre, Yell Labs, a group of technicians and strategists experimenting to find the best way for people to find local businesses. We use a combination of the iPhone’s GPS and compass to pinpoint where you are and the direction you’re facing in. We then seamlessly overlay the relevant information taken from Yell’s database of two million businesses, indicated with yellow circles.
The app will automatically select the business in front of you as you pan your phone around. When a business is selected information is displayed about that specific business such as address, phone number, and website. Alternatively, to select a business manually you can swipe the carousel that contains the business details (left or right) with your thumb. This will pause the auto-selection of businesses. Simply press the padlock icon to return to auto-select mode.
