Augmented reality service Layar has released an update for its iOS app today, bringing a complete redesign to the app as well as the ability to archive AR content for later viewing. The app also includes an integrated QR code scanner and a refined Geo Layer interface that allows the user to find points of interest within a physical location.
Scan print materials enhanced with Layar to view rich digital experiences right on top! Then be amazed as extra digital content appears, allowing you to interact with your world in a whole new way!
Layar was one of the most prominent early apps to take advantage of support for augmented reality features enabled by Apple in iPhone OS 3.1 back in 2009. Layar is a free download in the App Store. [Direct Link]

She should probably just go to that newspapers website on her phone. :)
