WAM uses Augmented Reality to put a label on your camera viewpoint in the direction of attractions like restaurants, bars, cafes, banks, atms, movie theaters, museums, art galleries, parks, gas stations, subway stations, bus stops, taxi stands, train stations, airports, medical and dental clinics, hospitals, pharmacies, gyms, spas, hotels, shopping malls, grocery stores, clothing stores, book stores, shoe stores, churches, mosques, synagogues, temples and other places of worship. It also allows you to search on your own terms. If you’re looking for something specific, say “Italian coffee”, type that on the search bar and just WAM it. Just point your phone in any direction and see WAM reveal to you all the places of interest in that direction. Tap on any of the billboards and access ratings, user reviews, directions, phone number, opening hours, price tier, website and photos. Get more info like wifi availability, credit cards the place accepts, whether the place takes reservation or if it has outdoor seating.
