Qualcomm Launches Its Augmented Reality SDK for iOS — Expect Better Augmented Reality Selection Soon
Qualcomm launched its augmented reality SDK for iOS yesterday, allowing app developers to create impressive augmented reality apps for our devices. While augmented reality is nothing new to iOS, Qualcomm’s SDK should mean more AR apps in the App Store because it makes it easier for developers to create apps for a number of different platforms.
Qualcomm revealed its intentions to bring its SDK to iOS developers a few months ago — having already been available for Android for some time — and now it’s available to download from the Qualcomm website. It’s compatible with the iPhone 4, fourth-generation iPod touch, and iPad 2, and allows developers to create apps that interact with real content, such as images and text, using your device’s camera.
