Wikitude Drive AR application for Android is finally available in the Market place. Check the video below.
Today I was browsing the Android Market and I found AugmentThis! , it seems to be an free Android Application on wich one can add there personal KML/KMZ Google Earth POI (point of intrest).
Search for it in the Android market and have a go
If you have an Android application then download there software here.
Yesterday at the terras we did some layar testing.
We where looking at a Android HTC magic phone with the Layar application installed in the Netherlands.
My first findings are that the application could use some tweaking to optimize performance. The sliders to shorten the radar view are unworkable IMO.
But to conclude the findings, I don’t realy find it usefull as for a bussiness case but it sure is loads of fun.
To find an ATM because layar tells me that it is the clossest in birdflight perpective is not that handy in the real world if there is a channel (water) in between it.
The Hyves.nl point of info stuff is very handy. The yellowpages could also be good if you could pick the type of bussiness.
Jobs: I personly find this useless. It doesn’t tell me anything about the fact that the job is interesting for me. I don’t want to see an opening for a cleaning lady. This layar is more a campagne branding thing for the job company.
It would be best if there is a AR directory on which one can select a layer of intrest and use that in there desired application/AR browser. The App-store of layers if you wil!
Yeah! What can I say, this is the best application I have seen. It looks realy cool and fun.
The best thing about this application is that it is a platform.
So if you have got some Longtitude Latitude data you can display this in a “Layar” layer.
This is a vey good thing, the only bad thing is that it is not OPEN.
Lets hope that they will change there mind. Good luck SPRXmobile! I am impressed.
