It’s now confirmed.
Augmented Reality has hit the iPhone app store. And we didn’t even have to wait for OS 3.1.
Presselite apps have been updated with a new Augmented Reality functionality called Your New Eye. This only works with the latest iPhone 3GS (compass needed). If you don’t believe it – check out the quick demo here :
In the words of co-founder Antoine Morcos:
Basically, with this application, you are able to see all the metro and bus stations around you (<1km), and also a lot of Points of Interest (Restaurants, etc.) via Augmented Reality, thanks to the camera.
London Bus is available on AppStore. (More details – screenshots, etc.)
Métro Paris for iPhone is also available here.
How come Apple approved an app that uses a private API ?
Does it really matter as long as it did?
Has Apple opened up?
Will it signal a flood of AR apps on the iPhone app store?
