Overlay Goodness: Three Best AR Apps for Your Phone

Augmented reality is a new and fun way to enhance things that are usually pretty mundane. It serves to add an extra layer of specialness to what you do. Once again, augmented reality is the superimposition of digital images or information into real life view (as seen through computer screens or phone screens).  Today, we look at the three best AR Apps for your phone!

Ink Hunter

Ever wanted a tattoo but was not quite sure how it would look like? Ink Hunter saves you the trouble of having to wonder and sit with indecision. Available for both Android and iOS users, it offers a gamut of designs. The users can choose any premade design or even upload one of their own designs.

The way it works is that you choose the design and superimpose it unto the body part of your choosing. It then takes a photo of that particular body part with the very real looking tattoo. Through the years, this app has gone through several renovations. It used to offer only black and white designs.

The more recent updates now allow colored tattoos to be featured as well. This is a truly helpful tool for those still struggling with what kind of tattoo goes on certain parts of the body. You can now even choose the specific diameters or angles of the tattoo making it more realistic when superimposed on the body. The best part about this app is the fact that is it completely FREE.

AR MeasureKit

Have you ever needed to make fast measurements but did not have the tools on hand? This app exists just for that purpose. While most augmented reality apps go toward being entertaining, the AR MeasureKit actually exists to be utilitarian.

While the free version only has a simple ruler that is capable of measuring length, the paid version will grant you all the tools in the menu. The price is at $3 which is fairly reasonable for a fully functional measuring tool in your pocket. This is particularly true for budding architects and homemakers who want a convenient way to measure a variety of things. So far, it is only available in iOS.

Google Translate

This is we have to say, a massive favorite for several of us. Completely free and available for both Android and iOS, this app is particularly useful for those who like to travel. Everyone is familiar with how Google Translate works on the browser.

The augmented reality app works in real-time. All anyone would have to do is to hold up their phone and have the app analyze any particular written text and would automatically translate it to a variety of languages. The user can choose their particular language and be treated to a real-time, highly useful translation. Never feel lost while on the road in a foreign country again!

To close, these augmented reality apps offer for their users. It only goes to show that when you make good software, the possibilities and applications are limitless!
