Wikitude 4 Now Available

One of my favorite Android apps from day one has been Wikitude, by Mobilizy.  It has always been fun to watch the reaction from people as I show them the first, and arguably best, “augmented reality” app.  After starting out with a great app back in 2008, Wikitude just keeps getting better.  Today sees the launch of Wikitude 4!

Among the new/improved features are overlays (think “Layar”) with Youtube, Google Local Search, Twitter, and more showing up directly over your camera view.  The interface gets a little bit of enhancement as well.  It’s also possible to use history and bookmarks to improve your experience.

Wikitude 4 will look up content from all overlays to help you find the places and terms you search for.  For example, do a search for ‘pizza’ and you might get tweets from people mentioning the local hotspot, Panoramio pictures, and a Wikipedia entry or two.  The results are displayed for you without you needing to know which overlays to mess with!

Look for Wikitude for free in the Android Market today.  Read more about the app by heading to Mobilizy’s page.

    Pretty cool App. But the current version is giving me a force close when trying to access the camera on the Nexus One. Hope they fix the issue soon.
