Just trying to turn a phrase. We didn’t actually add 0.6 dimensions of spacetime to our software.
The first thing you may notice once you have downloaded the updated junaio is the home screen- no more blue and green psychedelic background! Though I know it will be sorely missed, improving usability is one of our major concerns, and the charcoal background just feels cleaner while making the home buttons and featured channels stand out even more.
Once you stop drooling over the home screen (it’s so…Imperial…) you may notice that we’ve made some nice improvements to usability and performance in addition to the standard and ubiquitous bugfixes. If you’re using junaio on the New iPad, we’ve added Retinal Display support so now all of that 3-D and digital content that we’ve overlaid on the physical world for you is coming in crystal clear.
For iOS and Android in general, we’ve once again improved the 2-D surface and image recognition and tracking, which means you’ll be able to see augmentations on print, signs, posters, images, logos, newspapers, magazines and product packaging with less interruption and an overall smoother experience.
But the big news is that we’ve at last added 3-D object tracking to junaio! Yes, that’s right- the same tracking technology that won us First Place in the 2011 ISMAR Tracking Competition and powers the metaio Mobile SDK 3.1 is now running in junaio. This means that developers can start implementing 3-D tracking configurations so users can experience augmented content on real world objects.
The benefit of using AR software developed by a company that specializes in computer vision is that it’s always getting better. We’ll never leave you with a stagnant product, and we’ll keep researching ways to improve the technology, making it more enjoyable and immersive in the process.
And trust me- we’re in this for the long haul.
