If you ever wondered why Apple is banking on software to set the iPhone apart from other smartphones, take a look at the new iPhone app “Nearest Tube.”
When you launch this app, the screen shows a live video feed of whatever’s in front of you, as if you were looking through the viewfinder of a camera, for example. Except, superimposed over that video are arrows showing where and how far away the nearest Tube stations are (it was developed for the London Underground). As you turn your iPhone, the program adjusts and shows you other Tube stations, always organized by distance and color-coded to match the Tube line.
Dope. Dope. Dope.
Nearest Tube is currently waiting approval from the App Store. Via Gizmodo.
