Augmented Reality App for iPhone coming with OS 3.1 in September?!

Ακόμα περιμένετε να δείτε αυτές τις εφαρμογές αυξημένης πραγματικότητας στο iPhone, φαίνεται πως έρχετε η τυχερή σας μέρα…

According to a renowned newspaper, L.A. Times, Apple will be providing developers with the required tools to produce this kind of apps with the upcoming OS 3.1. The first demoes of augmented reality apps were out long back but we still aren’t able to enjoy these on the iPhone, even with the super graphics capabilities of the 3GS due to current restrictions from Apple . . . All those apps we’ve seen till now used unpublished APIs – imagine the potential of these applications with Apple’s own APIs! When developer from Acrossair submitted their application called ‘Nearest Tube‘ which is a train finder that uses GPS, camera, magnetometer etc to find nearby ‘tubes’, he received a reply from Apple saying that the app will be published once OS 3.1 comes out!

Apple told Acrossair, developer of the Nearest Tube train finder, that the app will be approved for distribution after Apple releases version 3.1 of the iPhone software, which the developer expects will land in early September.

Check out a demo of their Augmented Reality app, currently working on OS 3.0 below:

This could really be of great help to make 10x cooler games for the iPhone thus making it a much better platform!
