World Around Me - WAM is your local search guide.

World Around Me is a unique way to find useful places around you - such as restaurants, ATMs, pharmacies, groceries, doctors, shops, bus/metro stations and more. WAM uses your phone’s camera to give you a completely new way of exploring a place, anywhere in the world.

When you point the phone's camera in any direction, then you will see overlays of virtual signboards onto the camera view in that direction. Augmented Reality is thus used to enhance the view of your surroundings. This helps you navigate intuitively to places of your interest, using your phone’s camera.

Wow! What A WAM !

World Around Me ! This app is very usable & fun to work with. It’s helping me even with hidden places(hard to find the way on maps), ATMs ,smaller community parks etc… My 9-yr old son gets excited to play with it and able to guide us find places and landmarks with reviews. Best part is its usability when travelling to Europe and other tourist countries to find not only popular spots, restaurants in the vicinity but also not so popular ones, hidden and unique places.

Getting lost is fun!

This app makes me want to go to random places and just wing-it. Next time I get hungry I’ll just take the bus somewhere and eat at random places. Sometimes it doesn’t pick up places right in front of me, but it works for the most part.
