There’s been a bit of turbulence in the Augmented Reality (AR) space lately with Metaio being acquired by Apple and Qualcomm selling its Vuforia business. Customers are understandably worried about the future of the AR market.
Here at Layar, since joining forces with Blippar in 2014, we’ve been able to continually provide top-quality, stable services and solutions. One of the key areas we’re very dedicated to is our Augmented Reality software development kit, the Layar SDK. We’re very proud to say that Layar SDK will continue to be a very important product for us going forward.
With the Layar SDK, you can quickly and easily embed our Augmented Reality technology into your existing mobile app, giving you the ability to create a custom AR experience for your users within your app.
House of Fraser, one the U.K.’s largest premium department store chains, recently integrated the Layar SDK into its apps to offer customers a unique mobile shopping experience with AR. In creating what he called an “experience that transcends the mobile web,” CCO Andy Hardin praised the Layar SDK, which the company was able to integrate “quickly and seamlessly.”
The Layar SDK is a powerful tool for mobile Augmented Reality development. With it you can embed your own AR content in your app, whether it be scannable “Vision” AR, or location-based “Geo” AR. You can even use our PhoneGap plugin to seamlessly integrate the Layar SDK into your app development workflow.
