Urbanspoon Updated With Augmented Reality View

Urbanspoon [App Store, Free] has been updated to add an awesome shiny new augmented reality mode called “Scope.” When viewing it on your device normally, it shows your location as a blue pin in Google Maps, and nearby restaurants in red pins. Aiming the camera at the horizon, however, causes it to switch over to a live camera feed with nearby restaurant locations layered over it.

Resturaunts appear as large brightly colored circles containing their Urbanspoon rating. Most-liked restaurants show up as dark orange, and less liked locations fading into a grey.

The new Urbanspoon requires an iPhone 3GS.
