The Augmented Reality (AR) Apps that are Out of This World

Sometimes, all we need is a little bit of escapism. Virtual reality gives us the best out of body experiences we have access to in 2017, but what about augmented reality?

That’s where the world as we know is altered by adding additional information over it through an interface, like a phone. A brilliant and well-known example is the game Pokemon Go! But do you know any other AR experiences? Here’re a few of the Asda Mobile team’s favourites.

Ingress Imagine the board game risk, but where the real world is the board. Players choose to pledge allegiance to either The Resistance or The Enlightened. Capture territory out in the real world and dominate landmarks – all in a day’s commute.

Wikitude Do you live your life by Wikipedia? Well, now you don’t even have to provide a question to be able to learn snippets of information. The Wikitude app lets you hold up your phone, scan your environment and the app will pull up relevant information, such as the names of buildings or other landmarks.

Star Walk 2 Constellations Some people are scared of space while others find it fascinating. If you fall in the latter and can’t afford a telescope (we don’t blame you – they’re expensive!), we recommend that you pull out your phone and download this incredible app that lets you point your phone at the stars and learn what you’re looking at. You don’t even need an internet connection for this one, as it uses 3D models, making it perfect for a mountain top hike.

So, AR can be educational, informative or just plain old fun. If you want to make the most of your AR experiences, download one of our SIM-only bundles today, and never have to worry about your data again!
