Augmented Reality Mobile App Development

Article intro image

Augmented reality is a growing market, with more devices adapting to the technology as it brings an immersive experience for the user. This technology is not only being used for games, but also for treatment of mental health issues. Developing AR mobile apps has its challenges for developers, but nonetheless our team at Adastra has worked hard to develop two great mobile applications with the power of AR.

AR Scanner

You may be asking what an AR Scanner is and what it does. The goal of the application was to allow the user to scan products and obtain information, whether that be an employee or a customer. You’ll now be able to easily scan a product and view its details the next time you visit a retail store, with our built-in mobile app AR Scanner. 

AR Navigation

Imagine if your device could navigate you to your destination inside retail buildings. Now you can experience the same functionality as Google Maps would provide, with the convenience of our AR Navigation application on your smartphone. Just open up the app and set your location and destination to get started. Your phone will alleviate the stress of looking for a mall map to find the right store and direct you to where you need to go.

AR Future

We’ve seen companies begin their adaptation to augmented reality in their mobile apps, from Snapchat which allows you to play AR selfie games to Pokémon GO, which enables you to find and capture Pokémon in the real world. 

The industry of augmented reality is growing at an accelerating rate, especially in smartphones, for instance, Apple introducing ARKit in 2017, allowing the use of the devices sensors and cameras to build an augmented reality experience.

With many companies starting to develop and understand how augmented reality can fit with their company, we at Adastra can help you create an augmented reality mobile app for you needs.
