    I was driving yesterday and messing around with my iPhone 4 (whilst in traffic). I was fiddling with the camera and a message popped up saying something along the lines of "turn to landscape to start augmented reality mode".

    I made a note to have a look when I got out the car but forgot, and now for the life of me I can't seem to find this feature again.

    I'm reasonably sure I didn't imagine it but am now starting to doubt myself. Any help?!

    I believe augmented reality was a feature introduced with firmware 3, but I haven't heard anything about any apps that actually use it. I guess it didn't really live up to the hype. What app was it that gave you this augmented reality prompt?

    This is the thing, I'm 99% sure it was just through the camera, i.e not through an app. I've trawled google looking for confirmation on any AR stuff but can't find any evidence.

    The app 'around me' uses it that's the only one I know of that does

    Open up the app and then go on a section like 'Hospitals' and turn it sideways and it should just do it
