UpNext looks like a cool little app. We’re not sure if it beats Google though.
The 3D NYC iPhone App from UpNext is unbelievably cool. It renders Manhattan in 3D, allowing you to zoom up and down the city streets, in-between buildings, finding places to eat and things to do. The rendering is amazing — see the video above.
It overlays the subway map and crowdsources popular destinations. All this for only$2.99 from the iTunes App Store. Worth buying even if you don’t live in NYC.
