Five Groundbreaking Augmented Reality Socializing Apps
We’ll have to wait a bit longer for augmented reality-based apps to be available on the iPhone and Android platforms (word is that after Apple releases its 3.1 software update in September, we’ll see a flood of AR apps in the App Store). In the meantime, we’re gathering our wish lists for apps that bridge the gap between our digital social lives and our real-life ones.
You’re Twittering? Me too!
That’s the concept behind Michael Zollner’s TwittARound app that allows you to see live tweets pop up on your iPhone based on location. The app brings the real world into our digital reverie, enabling you to see both where the tweets ae coming from and how far away the person is that’s tweeting it. It could be a useful conversation starter, but mostly Twittaround just seems stalkerish.
