In the world where smartphones are the new hype, many people have heard about augmented reality. This is where the digital information that you can see on your smartphone can be applied to the environment. One just scans his work area using his smartphone and he can instantly gain access to the information regarding that object.

Augmented reality can be best seen on a compass, GPS, and camera. The camera provides a view of the actual environment while the compass and the GPS provide the exact location of the user.

Other relevant information that you can gain from GPS is that you can get information about apartments that are for rent in your area. You will be able to identify the nearest restaurant that delivers your favorite fried chicken, and a lot more.

Here are some of the apps that you should consider when it comes to augmented reality.

1. World Browser Wikitude
