S60v3 App Review: ARound

Share Button


Lately there has been much hype following the display of an augmented reality software on Google Android. I remember my initial reaction, although not as dramatic as the dropping of my jaw, but I was pleasantly surprised. I had not expected such a software to come about so soon, better yet on Nokia smartphones.

While the ARound project for Nokia smartphones apparently is not up to the same level as the other augmented reality applications, it should ease Nokia users into deploying the smartphones as a new guide. The ARound project has been developed by the collaboration known as Sequence Point Software. The application is currently available for download to S60 v5 (not compatible with Nokia 5800 XpressMusic) and S60 v3 devices.

I haven’t had the chance to play with this application yet but it seems quite impressive, and uses a combination of phone sensors, camera, and obviously the internet as a data source. One can also edit the data available for any point or location of interest and add general information.
