Nokia Point & Find

The Nokia Point & Find application just got updated and the new version is now available globally on most of the Symbian S60 devices (the older clients were limited to the UK and the US). The Nokia Point & Find is the first mobile augmented reality browser on S60 devices. The service lets you discover useful and contextually relevant information and services by simply pointing your camera phone at objects.


Let’s start with improvements to the user experience. We’ve fixed short of 100 bugs in network connectivity and overall stability of the client on some of our best-selling devices: N82, N95 8GB, N95, E71, E66, N81, N81 8GB, E51, 6220, 6210 Navigator, N97. Our hope is that the client will look more snappy and mature to you than its previous release, although some fixes had to be postponed. In particular: 1D barcode recognition in the shopping experience isn’t as reliable as we’d like it to be, especially on 3.1 devices; and start-up time on the 6220, 6210 Navigator is sluggish. Our R&D team is working on those issues now.

We’ve also released a client for the N97 with a brand new UI that takes advantage of the device’s touch capabilities and large screen res (see a screenshot below). Give it a try and tell us what you think. It will soon be ported to other devices of the S60 5.0 family.
