Great for Cities
What makes Wikitude unique is the way it represents the information to the user, and quite possibly could be to the future of GPS interfaces. The interface on this app allows for figuring out directions and orientations when in a big city far easier than that of a traditional GPS, which can oftentimes be slightly misleading. Simply holding up your device like a camera and looking at the screen, Wikitude can place the locations, events, etc. of your query in their respective places on the screen. If you're unimpressed with what's over there, simply spin a little to the side and keep looking! Of course it will work in smaller towns, as it seems to get a lot of its information Google places, but the more information to work with the better.
There are a few usability issues, especially within the user interface for browsing the options of a search (but recently they have been making drastic updates to this). Also, the search function should be updated to allow for more refined queries and allow selection of the databases you wish to pull information from.
This app has a lot of potential and is, in my opinion, a fantastic tool to have on a bustling city street.
I'm not sure what you would use this for. If you wanted to go to one of these places you would just gps it. Also, the places in it are outdated and few.
