Rating: Brand new version of this popular augmented reality browser
As soon as users load this version of the app, they will be greeted with a friendly and quick tutorial.
Afterwards they will be taken to smart GPS AR content – immediately displaying information based on their location.
From that Start screen, users need only to swipe to access the QR code scanner; a list of new and popular content channels; or even a visual search engine that will take the user directly to the AR content.
Daniel Gelder, a vp for commercial & consumer platform strategy with Metaio, commented, “This is a huge step for mobile Augmented Reality to have an application that practically anyone can use for the first time.”
GPS, image recognition, visual search and other AR features can be found in a variety of other apps, but Metaio insists that junaio is the only one that combines them all in a single, free application.
“Mobile users should be able to browse life like the web,” claimed Trak Lord, head of US marketing & media relations for Metaio.
junaio offers AR experiences from popular services and brands like 3M, eBay Classifieds, Toyota, Valpak, Foursquare, Eventbrite, Twitter, Instagram, and Wikipedia.
With over 10,000 active developers, junaio is one of the most successful open development platforms for mobile AR.
