i-MetrO for Layar

i-MetrOWhile MetrO for Android is still in the planning stage only, we have the pleasure to unveil our new service: i-MetrO for Layar.

If you don't know it yet, Layar is an Android application (available on the Android Market) that display various types of information (Flicker photos, restaurants, real estate prices...) in augmented reality - i.e. as text and graphics shown over a picture of your environment.

Each source of information is created as a "layer" and I built one for the Paris subway stations:

i-MetrO for Layar
You may find it with a search within Layar, with the keyword "metro".

The information provided is not quite rich (only the station names) but I may improve that if I find the time and if it is helpful to anyone (I tend to consider this as a gadget...)

Also note that versions of Layar are planned for other mobile systems and one for the iPhone should be available soon.


  1. Patrice, Great to know about i-MetrO for Layar while I'm waiting for MetrO for Android. Hopefully I can test it out in Paris in 2010.

  2. Patrice- I also eagerly await Metro for Android...

    I have happily recommended Metro to all of my NY friends & wish that layar had maps for NYC
