Ever wanted to find a great place to eat or something interesting to do but just didn't know what was around? 
Now there's an easy way to find out. Your phone's camera lens can reveal it all.    

A brand new FREE VisitHouston AR app takes the view you normally see through your cell phone camera and adds a layer of "augmented reality." In other words, when using the app, just point your phone camera in any direction and little labels pop up automatically displaying what's there, what type of business it is and how far away it is. Clicking on a label reveals even more information about that place like restaurant descriptions, ratings and more.
