ViewPoint Android App

ViewPoint, the new Android app from Planet Coops is out!

ViewPointHave you ever stood at the top of a hill, or up a tower, or anywhere with a view and wondered what that place over there is? This app will give you the answer. It is an augmented reality app, so stand at your viewpoint, point the phone or tablet to see the view you are interested in, and the place names will appear on the screen. Simple!

It is a free download, so if you have an Android device, go ahead and download it to have a look. Included with the free download is city, town and village information. To get access to the peaks, castles, ruins and monuments information is a premium upgrade.

ScreenshotThis is what we were busy doing last weekend, getting these photos. We might get some better ones once the weather is better and the view clearer!

Miss 11 would want you to see this screenshot:

MenuShe was very proud of this, because she drew all the icons for the buttons on the pull-out menu. When we were writing the user guide she was desperate for us to mention her. Her first commission, completed!

We are delighted to have another app out. We have spent the past few weeks with Mr PC talking about rotation matrices, and me nodding and agreeing with him. Now I can get out and use it, and learn that that thing on the horizon is Somers Obelisk. My first piece of information gained from ViewPoint!

      Unfortunately, no, it’s just on Android at the moment.Though If we ever began to make enough sales to give up the day job, Mr PC would start developing for Apple products too, straight away!
