Nokia launches LiveSight for HERE Maps on Windows Phone 8

Nokia has released an update to its Here Maps app for Windows Phone 8 and it brings a new feature: LiveSight. This works in much the same way that City Lens works on Lumia devices, overlaying digital tags on top of your viewfinder so you can easily find stores, restaurants and other points of interest.

The update is available in the Windows Phone Store but you'll need a WP8 device. Users will be able to access the new feature just by touching a button inside the Here Maps app. What's really great about this functionality is that it even has an offline mode so you're not dependent on the varying conditions of your phone's signal strength.

Nokia promises to keep things fresh and release iterative updates that will increase the functionality of LiveSight over time - and if you're curious what LiveSight looks like in action, you can take a look at the video below.
