See more with Wikitude!
Wikitude allows you to see more than your eyes can capture. Our "computer vision" technology is a bit like magic and connects you with the world in a completely new way. Use the app as a tool to experience augmented reality content, campaigns, projects, promotions, games and so much more by simply scanning the things you see!
At the core of the Wikitude App is the Power Search, your gateway to unlocking the world of digitally augmented content around you. For example, businesses can provide you with a Search Code that will directly lead to a specific AR experience. Just type it into the search box at the top and let Wikitude augment your world.
NEW! The latest Wikitude enhancements allow you to augment not only images but Objects as well!
Are you a brand or business that wants to publish augmented reality experiences in just a few click? The Wikitude App in combination with Studio Editor is the ideal package for you!
A fundamental benefit of the Wikitude App is that it enables users to easily publish AR projects created in Wikitude Studio Editor. Without the need of any programming skills marketers can now hop on to the web, log into the Studio, create an AR project in as little as 10 minutes and publish it in the Wikitude App right away.
Bring packages, banners, brochures, magazines, books, labels, and all sorts of images to life with videos, animations, 3D models, social media and customized buttons. Moreover, projects monitoring and reporting is supported through Google analytics.

Ratings and Reviews
Great for Cities
What makes Wikitude unique is the way it represents the information to the user, and quite possibly could be to the future of GPS interfaces. The interface on this app allows for figuring out directions and orientations when in a big city far easier than that of a traditional GPS, which can oftentimes be slightly misleading. Simply holding up your device like a camera and looking at the screen, Wikitude can place the locations, events, etc. of your query in their respective places on the screen. If you're unimpressed with what's over there, simply spin a little to the side and keep looking! Of course it will work in smaller towns, as it seems to get a lot of its information Google places, but the more information to work with the better.
There are a few usability issues, especially within the user interface for browsing the options of a search (but recently they have been making drastic updates to this). Also, the search function should be updated to allow for more refined queries and allow selection of the databases you wish to pull information from.
This app has a lot of potential and is, in my opinion, a fantastic tool to have on a bustling city street.
Nice tech - is content sponsored?
All I get for content is the towns & neighborhoods around me & hotels. They're supposedly Wikipedia pages - but I know for a fact that here in historical Northern Virginia there are a lot more wikipedia articles near me than this shows (and are there really Wikipedia articles on every hotel??).
The most glaring example of this is the Manassas Battlefield - home of some of the bloodiest & most relevant battles of the American Civil War. There is a lot of Wikipedia content on that battlefield, but the only nearby "POI" this shows is the Fairfield Inn! In comparison, Google Earth for iPhone has several Wikipedia links directly on the battlefield.
I can't help but suspect the reason this is free is because corporations - most suspicously hotel companies - are making sure their "POI" is there at the expense of others.
Interesting idea; unfortunately it is buggy, has poor interface.
I like the concept behind augmented reality, and I want this app to work, but it suffers from a poor interface. It crashes (both 2.1 and 2.2) when you try to remove an item from the list, such as Starbucks. (One thing I don't need is an app to find Starbucks.) Also, the camera button doesn't work most of the time, leaving you stuck in map mode. (The camera button is the only way to counterintuitively access the menu.) I hope the developer can clean up the bugs and improve the navigation issues. Nice idea, execution lacking.
