Wired Rates Top 7 AR Apps.Friday, January 15th, 2010 by Giuseppe Piersantelli
We started dealing with augmented reality applications for mobile devices about one year ago and most of them have been released during the first half of 2009. Nevertheless, in the last few months, we didn’t find any new or disruptive application or concept. It sounds like the developers are still waiting the audinece to widespreadly adopt AR apps in their everyday digital life.
Wired, which helped us a lot to find out the latest cutting edge gadget, service or story, has recently published a short and clear ranking of AR applications with a short description. As we could expect, Yelp wins the first place with its Monocole; but what sounds weird to us is that Layar, the powerful AR platform, is almost in the bottoms of the ranking.
Anyway, this classification can be useful to better understand which are the mainstream AR apps and which platforms they are available for.
