Augmented apps have been around since quite a while but haven’t caught up as much mostly due to limitations in hardware or software. With those barriers now well off bounds, these apps are slowly making their way back to app stores all over. ‘Augmented’ means ‘enhanced’ and coupled with ‘reality’, the concept literally means ‘Enhanced Reality’. These apps make use of the smartphone’s camera and GPS to derive visual data that would otherwise not be obvious to the human eye. Using several complicated image indexing algorithms, the app then computes images and provides data to the user in a whole new way. Let’s have a look at some of the best augmented reality apps out there: Read More

It is one of the main reason why businesses today are going for iPhone app development. Also, having a standard configuration to develop for instead of a million different resolutions and chip sets to support for sounds a lot more reassuring and helps expert developers like Apps Developers Australia (SDI)come up with cutting edge work.
