You've all see them at one point or another. Those little notes on advertisements that say 'scan here using your mobile phone'. They often times unlock deals, cool extra content, free downloads or whatever else people can think of that offers interaction. Some of them simply rely on QR codes but plenty of advertisers these days are making use of Blippar, which embeds the content without QR codes, even BlackBerry has used Blippar in the past.

Just load up the app, let your camera scan around for the embedded code and you've unlocked some goodies all from within the app itself and now, Blippar is ready for BlackBerry 10. I've seen quite a few ads making use of Blippar but with no app to use on my device, I always ignored them. If you download Blippar and are looking for some cool things to 'blip', you can check out the Blippar Facebook page which has quite a few images from around the world to check out. 

Arriving as a native app into BlackBerry World, Blippar is now available for the BlackBerry Z10 assuming you're running OS 10.0.10 or higher. Also, given the nature of the app it's available in all countries so if you're not seeing it in BlackBerry World using the link below, go ahead and perform a search for it. Clearly not an app you'll use every day but it's still cool to have available should you spot any ads with it enabled.

Wow... yes, it is! Very cool!

Never heard of that brewery but I'd buy the beer just out of appreciation for their AR app...

So, the little cross-hair things go all over the screen and make little circles on stuff, and then- Well, that just keeps happening...

I have had this idea of a dash-cam/navigation AR app that will overlay info on the screen while recording video. If I could code I would definitely be working in writing that app.

Disappointed, however, you can't record video and play music at the same time.

Link is taking me to an app page that tells me it's not available for my device. What's up with that?

Ask Verizon. "Blippar is now available for the BlackBerry Z10 assuming you're running OS 10.0.10 or higher."

I got to many apps! Hahahahahah I thought I would never say that with my blackberry!!!! My Z10 is stuffed from all the great 5star apps! I get from crackberry! Anybody knows how to make room? Only 1GB left! And I used 15GB on games and apps! Can I put games apps in the "BOX" app?

Nope, games & apps must live in device memory. Sorry!

You can check what media you have on device mem and transfer it to media card, Box, etc. A lot of stuff automatically ends up in device mem like screenshots, downloads, and several other items.

And then be picky about those apps & games, especially the bigger ones.

This is how you CB10, son!

Not an issue for me with my Z10, but have trouble figuring out why they couldn't have easily made this available for Q10 too.
Who knows, maybe we'll see it for Q devices too very soon.

This is how you CB10, son!

Too bad Verizon still got a stick up their rear so their customers can't enjoy another great app

I have to say that I'm pleasantly surprised that the quality apps are starting to come through. This is good for BBRY.

Ooo okay thanks! I truly tried to stuff every 5star app into my Z10 especially after blackberry live this year! I downloaded N.O.V.A3 and modern combat and batman! And I had to grab mass effects with tons of other apps! Corky notes was a must! Hahahaah!oo well! I truly have over 40+ apps in my Z10! LOL! I'll just have to delete a couple of apps! But it's cool! they just sit in my blackberry world! For when ever I need them! Oo yeah 10.1.0.2354 runs great on my Z10!

Impossible, yohan! Everyone knows BB doesn't have any apps!

(yeah, I love how easy bbworld makes it to keep your purchased apps handy for re-loading. These are good days to be a BB owner, despite recent news.)

Bla1ze, I'm surprised you didn't mention in the article how BlackBerry used this earlier this year to overlay BB10 on iOS and Android devices (or any other device that visited the website) around launch.

Last paragraph ends with:
"... even BlackBerry has used Blippar in the past."

It's a hyperlink to:

Makes my Z10 flaming hot!

Never used this app before, but wow, is this ever cool! Just tried the http://www.shocktopbeer.com/s/ link Bla1ze mentioned. So cool.

Well, almost. You seem to get "stuck" in certain games or promo things where the "ok" button or icons are just off the screen and can't be pressed and then there doesn't appear to be a way to "back out" of it so you need to close the app?
