ViewPoint, the new Android app from Planet Coops is out!
Have 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.
Miss 11 would want you to see this screenshot:
She 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!
