UpNext

UpNext is a NYC based startup developing extremely detailed 3D maps for the mobile devices. UpNext currently maps New York City, Boston, DC, San Francisco, Philly, Chicago, Portland and Austin.

Within the UpNext 3D Cities iPhone app a complete 3-D representation of each city is offered, down to practically every single building. You can pan and zoom, and click on any building to get a list of the businesses inside. Type in an address and the map flies right to it. If you want to see nearby restaurants, bars, stores, hotels, museums, or sports facilities, you can set a filter to light those things up on the map.
