Nokia has updated its Nokia Here Maps app for Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 platform, and the update app now comes with sight recognition in the form of LiveSight, which scans where you are pointing the devices camera and provides you with live information on the area.
HERE uses sight navigation as a new way to discover and find your way through the world. Sometimes pins on a map are not quite enough, LiveSight uses sight to recognize and identify places around you simply, by looking around through your phone’s display.
In HERE Maps, LiveSight allows you to pinpoint exactly where you’re going just by looking. Just open HERE Maps, tap the LiveSight icon and pan around. LiveSight reveals shops, restaurants and your favourite places as virtual signs on buildings right on your screen.
