Wikitude now available for OS6 devices through BlackBerry App World

Wikitude initially launched with only BlackBerry 7 support but today they launched a BlackBerry 6 compatible version into App World. With the expansion to support OS 6 it allows a ton more users to take advantage of the various features offered, such as sharing locations with friends, finding new contacts for BBM, and much more. Hit the link below to download Wikitude on your OS6 device.

I don't think it will be as cool without Augmented Reality but I will give it a try.


You're right. It isn't the same without the AR and the touchscreen. It's very difficult to navigate the map when it goes through all the contacts or sights near you. Also it's just too many menu's, almost overwhelming. I don't see myself using Wikitude that much.


I've got its cool so far


now, where's the playbook/QNX version??? that would make my day!


Coming Feb 2012 maybe ?


anyone know how to disable twitter and stuff from appearing from randoms, its really annoying



I don't know what it's supposed to do in terms of GPS location but I live in the Netherlands, while Wikitude places me somewhere in a Spanish speaking area...
CORRECTION: India or Pakistan now...


Yes! I've been longing this app for my 9800! xD #TeamBlackBerry #BlackBerryLove


Hi @kemj,

Alex from RIM here. Thanks for being a part of #TeamBlackBerry, and I’m loving the enthusiasm for getting the Wikitude app on your Torch. It rocks, and the integration with BBM 6 lets you find your BBM contacts, too – awesome for when you’re out in a crowd.

If you’d like to learn more about the ins and outs of Wikitude, check out this video from our Inside BlackBerry Blog: Enjoy!

How do i get the camera to work? I dont get this....

Pilot Prop

does there need to be BBM users near you before the camera thing will work?

**just went back and read the description of the application. without the AR i gave this app a 2/5.


awesome! will download it right away


To me, it seems cool and all that. I was really interested when I was first reading about the release for the OS7 devices. However, without Augmented Reality, I don't see any value added to my 9780. When I read the description for OS6, I feel I can do just as well using Poynt like I do now.

LoL. I think I should really consider obtaining an OS7 device to enjoy this the way it was meant to be enjoyed.


of course no 9670 love


Looked for it on the bb style and it does not support it why is os6?


Unfortunately it won't be the same experience on the OS6 devices. I appreciate the gesture tho, atleast someone remembered that it was only last year that my 9780 was the hit thing... *thumbs up*

Without the gyroscope and a compass...AR can't be enabled. Our OS6 devices lack the hardware :( :( .


Backup before installing this! Sent my 9800 into an endless reboot cycle....


same here... any idea how i fix this now?


very amazing app ... i really like like it ...


Poynt is not available for my country. So this new Wikitude for 0S6 app fits great in my Torch 9800

This app seems a little too big brother for me. What if it gets into the wrong hands and/or somone who has a grundge?


DO NOT INSTALL this... Torch 9800 is officially in an infinite reboot cycle.. This app has officially wrecked my day!!! No device since late last night and won't be able to get a loaner until I get home in the morning from Winnipeg..... ARRRRRRRGHHHHHHHHHHHH
