One of the most anticipated applications for the new BlackBerry OS 7 phones has to be the Wikitude Augmented Reality Browser.  If you're not familiar, the augmented reality application displays the image from your smartphone's camera. Layered on top of this image are clickable links to information about the places around you. In past demonstrations, we've seen banks, hotels, shops, and even BlackBerry Messenger Contacts pop up on the screen. All in all, the Wikitude Augmented Reality Browser appears to be a highly useful (and entertaining) app.

If you've got an OS 7 device (lucky!), then you'll want to grab this app quickly. It's available today, right now, in BlackBerry App World. Please note that this BlackBerry App World link will only work from a BlackBerry OS7 device.

Joseph, are you planning on reviewing this app more in-depth soon? I really think this app is going to rock, but the video doesnt really show it off like CrackBerry could! :)

Joseph Holder

Yeah, we're going to do a more in-depth review later.  We just wanted to get the download info out as quick as we could.

johnmarki

Cool. Thanks for responding, definitely looking forward to it!

I've just insatlled it on my 9900 and it's not doing very much. Maybe it's me being stupid. I was going to look for information on the Wikitude site but it is one of the sites affected by the Amazon hosting outage.

Does Wikitude AR find all BBM users or only BBM users on BBOS7 with Wikitude AR?

johndoe086

Only users on OS7 and new device, because for BBM it will have to require the use of the digital compass (magnetometer).

Read the forum, removing the languages that you don't need. It should save you 40MB to 50MB.

Can't find it either. Not on App World.

C'mon!

Having issues installing this app. Once installed the 2.0 version asks to upgrade and after upgrading it loops back to the older version. Not able to make it work on my new 9900.
Anyone else having the same issue?

I am still waiting for the Telus to release the BB 9900. But I see that the App is NOT on the App World. It has been removed.

May be this is due to privacy laws in Canada or something like that?

toine.b

i cannot even find it, looks like it was removed for download

adrenaline_x

it was removed.. I can't find it either..

This application is not available on your device or for your carrier."

Torch 9810 on Rogers - I tried using the QR code, a link to http://goo.gl/wcxGs and directly from AppWorld. No dice - "not available for your device"
