Given my iPhone can't determine my position within 100m even on a good day, I really wonder how useful these apps will be.

This looks great. Shame about the camera's focusing square being visible. Of course, if I held my iPhone in the air around here someone would snatch it!!

Puisque tous les utilisateurs d'iPhone habitent en France, ce sera une application très populaire. ;)

I wonder what can be done to clean up the jumpiness. I think this may depend on hardware rather than software. More accurate GPS chips? Additional magnetometers? LIDAR?

I just want to see an augmented King Kong climbing the Empire State Building or an augmented Godzilla strolling through my neighborhood.

Looks nice, the only problem is that the application is for Paris only. So, we still have to wait.
