    City lens API?

    Hi,
    Is it possible to utilize City Lens AR feature from my own app or is it possible to create own Lens with unique content to Nokia app? I could't find any information from here or Google.

    Thanks in advance!

    Based on a few searches, it is often referred as LiveSight API, but it does not seem to be an open API yet.
    However on the implementation side it probably does not do anything what 3rd party applications could not do, so it is possible to develop similar functionality for 3rd parties too.

    Have you considered using a 3rdparty framework?

    http://gart.codeplex.com/

    Searching for those will give you some results on tutorials and step by steps. Example:

    I personally use GART, stable efficient and easy to use. unfortunately it's not available for WP8 "Yet" , but it's being ported and should be out soon!

    But I'm assuming that you can target to 7.1/7.8 and then deploy to WP8 also right? Have you tested that scenario?

    Yes, It works, It's a temporary situation for now because I want to take advantage of the new WP8 Nokia Maps APIs aswell, so I'm doing that while waiting for the release (which shouldn't take long according to the dev).
