    I saw an "app" on a commercial for a Droid called "view finder". It looks like Google Earth with Stores, Restaurants, etc. listed. Is it available for the Incredible? Can't find it in Marketplace, but maybe that is not the real name.

    It looks like it could be Google Earth, Street View but it had many icons with names of the businesses, eating establishments, etc. Most I have seen on Google Earth is 1 icon, knife & fork and the restaurant name, but it did not look like the app on the TV Commercial. I have seen is almost every night on the major networks.

    Thanks fenga and 330D, I saw the ad again last night and it did mention Layar at the end of the commercial. I don't know why they didn't say that earlier in the commercial instead of "view finder" but now I know what app they were talking about.
