ReviewsAlistair Cameron - December 10, 2012
As has been commented before, the AR the app claims to provide isn't there at start-up. Instead it expects you to scan a barcode. Eh? In fact you can still do AR but you have to go into the menu and install new layers depending on what you want to see. Turns out there's not much to see anyway. So, bye bye AR was fun for a little while.Arif T Hussain - December 24, 2012
Alternative to Nokia City Lens? Not this one.
I downloaded this after seeing it as an Android alternative to Nokia's city lens (which btw is awesome!). But this is nowhere close to that (especially on the AR side). And first off, Layar expects us to scan a page/ look for the layar icon.. I never seen it anywhere or maybe I haven't looked close enough. And the scan never brought up any results too. Poor list of choices within the app and more like an 'alpha' release, this app offers nothing useful as of now. 1 star.Jade Solis - December 19, 2012
The idea is sound but the lack of content is the big letdownKhaled Yasser - December 18, 2012

I have been using it for my school projects and events and it is amazing. I hope this will become a really popular app so that more people know about it. I wish that the AR video worked on greater diversity of phonesKARTHY PILLAI - December 20, 2012

Its a great concept but poor implementation makes it basically useless The concept of overlaying information in real life is awesome but the level of info that layer can contribute is really lacking any substance of value. They need to get more useful info to display. They also need to simplify the interface so that you no longer have to install something to see it on your screen. While seeing the best way to convey info in the world, the long downloads make this product significantly more cumbersome to use than Google search. Good idea poor implementation.
