Dutch bank ING has launched a new application for T-Mobile's G1 Google phone that combines the built-in GPS technology with the handset's compass and camera to 'point' users in the direction of the nearest bank ATM.
Users have merely to open the application, point the camera in the direction they're facing and a superimposed label appears on the screen pointing to the nearest building in view that houses an ATM.
Developers at ING collaborated with Mobilizy - which developed the Wikitue AR Travel Guide (for tapping into Wikipedia-based local information on the move) and SPRX Mobile to build the application.
The beta version of app is available for free through Android Market, Google's version of the iPhone App Store.
