Star Walk is an example of an app that does this very well and gives the user a fun and educational value to having this app. Star walk was awarded best app of 2010 by apple. What makes this app so good? The main new feature of this update is Augmented Reality for the iPod Touch that allows users to point-and-display the sky as on any device with digital compass.


Layar is a mobile platform for discovering information about the world around you. Using Augmented Realty (AR) technology, Layar displays digital information called “layers” in a user’s field of vision through their mobile device.

The Layar API supports a high level of interactivity, including audio and visual elements, 3D models, and social sharing capabilities.
