metaio adds new look, new feel, new API to junaio, bringing mobile browsing closer to reality

metaio, the worldwide leader in Augmented Reality (AR) software, today announced the release of the latest update to junaio, the most advanced AR Browser and open development platform, available immediately for download on iOS and Android mobile devices. With a brand new user interface and experience, this version of junaio is an AR browser that no one has ever seen before, driven by amazing content, incredible interactions and a tool that allows anyone to produce their own experiences.

 

 

From a new open API (lowering the barrier for developers by using HTML5 and JavaScript for creation of AR experiences) to a brand-new intuitive user interface, the new junaio takes mobile augmented reality experiences to a whole new level. With thousands of content channels from developers, designers and popular brands, the camera of the smartphone releases the vastness of the internet into the real world.

 

Augmented reality apps in the past have been clunky, unintuitive and almost impossible to navigate. The new junaio brings a fresh start to mobile AR, with a seamless swipe transition between the different features. As soon as users load the application, they will be greeted with a friendly and quick tutorial, after which they will be transported instantly to smart GPS AR content, immediately displaying information based on their location. From that screen users need only to swipe to access the QR code scanner, a list of new and popular content channels, or even a visual search engine that will take the user directly to the AR content without ever leaving the screen.

 

"This is junaio at its best. It's never been easier to find fresh, relevant content in the world around you," said Daniel Gelder, VP Commercial & Consumer Platform Strategy. "This is a huge step for mobile Augmented Reality to have an application that practically anyone can use for the first time."

With over 10000 active developers, junaio is one of the most successful open development platforms for mobile AR. Metaio has added HTML5 and JavaScript support that will allow developers, agencies and brands to deploy games and other experiences that interact and respond to elements in the real world.

 

For over a year, junaio has already provided smartphone users the ability to scan QR codes, navigate indoor and outdoor environments and discover augmented content in images and print, with experiences from content from popular services and brands like 3M, eBay Classifieds, Toyota, Valpak, Foursquare, Eventbrite, Twitter, Instagram, and Wikipedia.

 

"Mobile users should be able to browse life like the web," said Trak Lord, head of US Marketing & Media Relations for metaio. "This latest version of junaio is the first major step to making that a reality."

 

GPS, image recognition, visual search and other AR features can be found in a variety of apps, but junaio is the only one that combines them all in a single, free application. With a clean new look and technology that will empower the next generation of mobile interactions, junaio is the mobile companion for an Augmented World.

 

The newest version of junaio is available from today on for free in the Apple App Store and within the next few days at Google Play.
