StreetMuseum: Looking into the Past With an IPhone App!


The Museum of London has just launched an iPhone app that makes use of its extensive art and photographic collections as well as geo tagging and Google Maps to guide users around London where, via the iPhone screen, you can look into the past! By overlaying old photos, The Museum of London gives you a unique experience, making you want to explore the hidden history of London that surrounds you.

Museum of London: Streetmuseum is available as a free download from iTunes now. You'll need to own a 3GS to take advantage of the augmented reality option.
