In your FACE, iPhone users! Layar's latest update, 3.5, has been released first for Android phones. It includes the new 'stream' feature, which offers up augmented reality information based on your location, without a search entry needed.

It'll help shave time off your localized queries, with the Stream setting coming up first, when the reality browser is opened. If you weren't after any of the details it's showing you, you can then make a search entry for the specific query—Italian food, for example.

Available now for Android, the iPhone version will drop soon according to Layar. [Layar via Mobile-Ent]

These augmented reality apps are frustrating on a Nexus One. Indoors? No GPS signal. Outdoors in daytime? Can't read the AMOLED screen.

Basically, it's only useful outside, at night. :-(
