    Google goggles used to...

    Am I nuts, or when you used to bring up google goggles, and pointed it say, down town, would show you what was in the area- ie: restaurants, clubs, businesses? I remember my original droid doing this, but am not having luck with my droidX. When we would go to a larger city it was an extremely useful feature... If I need to clarify let me know... any help would be super. Thanks.

    I think you are referring to "Places"?

    Ok, cool , I am familiar with Places app... but I swear I remember being able to pull up google goggles, point it down a street, and in real time, as if you were taking a picture of a business front,~but not~ it would show you as you walked down the street, the businesses.... Think college game day, downtown Lincoln NE, and you are looking at places to eat, bars, shops, etc... I have activated GPS.. yadda yadda... No? crazy pants? ... quit hittin the sauce?... anyone remember that feature?

    Funny, you should mention that. I remember the same thing and I was just asking someone else about it. That was a cool app. You could be in a new town at an intersection and point the droid like a camera down each street to see what was there. It would pop up a name of a restaurant or gas station etc and you could tap on it and get a description.

    The app you are looking for is called Layar or Wikitude World Browser.
