Wouldn't it be cool if Foursquare acquired/partnered with this company?

What location database does this app use? What are the differences between Arkick and wikitude?

This is one of those apps that has a lot of potential, and it's good to see the developers constantly improving it. I downloaded it a little while ago, and really like the view in Sidekick Mode. Unfortunately it failed to load details of the items clicked on. I contacted the developer, and they were really quick replying (which was nice) and they said this (and other things) would be fixed in the next update. Might be well worth while to grab this now while the price is right so that you've got it in your arsenal of apps when the updates come!

I have the same problem. Select a location, and it just continually says "Loading...". I just contacted the developer as well.

Cool app, but Bullsh!t I just paid full price a few days ago for it.

I bought it when it first came out and have been stuck waiting for a useful update, I hope the new version capitalises on the apps potential because I do regret purchasing this app.

Does it work outside the US? If so, how well?

Yes it does work outside the US, and very well at that. I use it in the UK and it picks up things that I wouldn't even expect.

I purchased on 10.1 but just didn't think it was for me, maybe too much battery consumption.

How is it on 10.2.1? Q10?

I've had it for a long time now and it still uses way to much battery for me on 10.2.1 on my Z10.

I sure hope that their version 2 improves in this regard.

Worked great last year until VZW Updates broke my compass. Now ARKick doesn't know which way is North!!

DoryGuy

Have you upgraded to 10.2.1.xx ? Verizon/BBRY broke my compass last year but it works now.

dmlis

Interesting.
It's a pity no version for Playbook.

LyBerry

I hope they give us the ability to perform more refined searches. Sometimes, I know exactly what I am looking for but just don't know where it is and would like ARKick to help me pinpoint it. I also need a way to figure out what's what when the bubbles indicating a place are on top of each other. It's hard to select each of them.

Other than that, I love this application. I don't use it that much, as I am not in unfamiliar territory that often but, when I am, I cut this on and it's been very effective. Not always accurate but nothing is perfect.

It's cool, but if you live in a big city with tons of restaurants and bars etc... then your screen gets filled with too many locations : they often overlap and it's not possible to select a location when it's covered over by another location in front of it.

You need to be able to dynamically decrease the search radius and be able to choose overlapping locations.

Hope v2 addresses this.

If they could fix this issue (where too many locations get

I bought it and tried it, used it for fun while board, but from a practical standpoint it is way easier to just use the yellow pages app (in Canada) or Google with location based search on if you are looking for a specific type of place. The Arskick gets really busy in a city as suggested by another comment, but you can scale back the distance it covers. You can also delete/clear tags that are on top of others if you are trying to get to info for one behind another.

Bored not board.

This got me to load it back up to try again. Once you figure out to tap on the place bubble (in sidekick mode) and then tap the garbage to remove or the document to pull up the actual place details, it makes a lot more sense. It uses Foursquare for the locations, but it would work way better with the Yellow Pages Which offers very similar looking location based context info but with a lot more detail.

There really should be a free trial of this kind of software.

No support for no latin characters like Greek. I contact them and told me that their sdk support only english but in the future will be utf 8 support. Greek names appear with ???? mark.

Serge Fisher

Hey. They don't unicode. That means you can't see non-latin symbols.
