See how a Michelin Guide app took advantage of Nokia Lumia features in this behind-the-scenes video
Nokia's dev forum released a video describing the process of tailoring the Michelin Guide app for the unique features of Lumia handsets. The guide includes more than 30,000 attractions with info and reviews curated by Michelin, and we all know about the famous star system they are awarding to the world's top restaurant.

Not only did the Nokia Drive offline navigation system facilitate mapping of the places, but also the little things helped, like embedding a Nokia NFC tag in the Michelin logo awarded to the restaurants and other places that make it to the guide. Nearing your Nokia Lumia to the logo nets you all the related info for the place, which is hopefully a harbinger of things to come.

This is great! I love my Michelin guides and being able to use an NFC chip of at the restaurant is sweet!
