Wikitude is a browser that will open your eyes to the world around you through your device's camera. The augmented-reality browser lets you explore and interact with your surroundings. You can search for places around you, such as "restaurants" or "accommodations," or look up nearby events, tweets, Yelp recommendations or relevant Wikipedia articles. Vendors in the area also serve up mobile coupons via the app so you'll know when you're near a good deal. Wikitude also comes with a bunch of cool AR games, like "Swat The Fly," "Alien Attack" and "Bubble Tap."
