Apple’s new augmented reality platform is ready to roll-out after the launch of the updated operating system for mobile. So, iPhone and iPad users have access to the first generation of AR apps available in Apple’s App Store.
To play with augmented reality apps, users need to have iOS 11 which is available on iPhone 6 and more current devices. According to market analysts, Apple may revolutionize the mobile computing with the use of AR on smartphones and tablets.
Moreover, Google has also entered the world of augmented reality after launching AR software development platform ARCore which will work similarly as ARkit. So, soon there will be more AR apps available for androids as well.
So, let me share some best ways to experiment with augmented reality, apps on your iPhones and iPads.
1- Ikea Place:
An augmented reality app which allows the user to measure furniture within his/her living room by using the camera, even the users can virtually overlay the model where they want it to be fit in. Nowadays, people are overlaying furniture models in the middle of a street and New York subway platform.
2- Measure Kit:
There are apps supported by ARkit which can work as a virtual measuring tape. Through this app, one can precisely measure anything just by tapping on the screen. Additionally, this app has also the ability to calculate the trajectory distance of moving objects, angle degrees, and even the person’s height.
3- Fitness AR:
This app is designed to rebuild memories in the amazing outdoors. Fitness AR collects the visuals of past rides, hikes and walks in a three-dimensional topographical map through fitness tracking app.
Gartner Analyst ‘Brian Blau’ said, “This is the start of a great platform”. Developers are going to use a lot more from ARkit that will have a beautiful impact on entertainment, social media and enterprise.
