Augmented Reality apps are hitting the market, every time with new interesting proposals. PicsAround is a fresh-made location-based AR app that will help user discover new places and meet new people just using their device as a compass.
First off, you'll be prompted to create a PicsAround account. The process is fast and easy. Afterwards, you just need to hold your iPhone, and point any direction in a live compass manner to discover a new world of pictures and places nearby. Each pictures might have comments from other friends and users just need to tap to get directions.
The idea is taking pictures of places or events celebrated in those places. The app is built on top of the worlds largest, interactive AR community (augmentedgallery.com) which means there's an acceptable database already.
PicsAround runs smoothly, it makes the most of all the sensors of your iPhone: compass, camera, gyroscope and GPS in order to provide an actual AR experience. The app is fully integrated with Facebook and Twitter and allows sharing any picture through that social networks.
An interesting free-without-ads app for sharing your best moments and to find them in an interactive way. Recommended.
