Hollywood Walk of Fame iPhone app launched

LA Times app gives stargazers info as they walk the walk

What was he in again? Find out with some augmented reality goodness.

Every taken a walk down the Hollywood Walk of Fame (as you do) and wondered 'who the ruddy hell is that?' Well now a new iPhone app has been launched, serving up the vital stats for members of entertainment's most exclusive club.

The LA Times app allows movie fans to point their iPhone camera lens at each star and summon a host of the newspaper's mini biographies on the more than 2,000 Hollywood legends via a neat use of augmented reality.

They've also divided the stars up into lists like Hollywood Hunks, Bombshells and Bad Boys or you can simply browse alphabetically or by block.

While this is no doubt a fun and informative app for stargazers, In our experience the Times would be better off launching, 'fastest way to run to a police officer' app, or a 'figure out who the look-a-like outside the Kodak theatre is supposed to be' app.

That'd get far more use. Anyway, this is cool, free and we like it.
