Augmented Reality App Development
The most popular example of Augmented Reality is Pokémon Go developed in 2016. According to Statista, in 2021, Pokémon GO in-app purchase revenues surpassed 904 million U.S. dollars worldwide.
The good news is AR can be used in a number of industries, including healthcare, manufacturing, education, retail, tourism, gambling, real estate, etc.
It opens a lot of opportunities for training and performing procedures. Surgical procedures, tumor identification, blood flow visualization, and even reconstructive surgery procedure planning are easier with the use of augmented reality.
It enables teachers to show virtual examples of concepts and add gaming elements to provide textbook material support. This will enable students to learn faster and memorize information.
AR in E-commerce & Retail
AR technology provides customers with the opportunity to try out things they want to buy. AR works by using a camera or a photo uploaded over the application. Users can easily pick a piece of clothing or make-up and see virtually how it looks on their faces or body.
Logistics workers can use AR glasses in warehouse operations to access a digital packing list. It also shows them the best route to cut travel time. AR devices can also scan items to detect damages, pack cargoes in perfectly sized boxes, and maximize freight loading spaces.
Maps and Tourism
From a mobile device, sound, video, graphics, and GPS data can easily point you in the right direction when you want to go from one place to another. On top of that, tourists can point their smartphone at a building or landmark and learn more about it, in real-time.
Another special feature is the 360-degree tours that are easily accessible, thus making it possible to virtually explore a place before visiting it.
The process of creating an augmented reality application includes the following steps:
How Much Does it Cost to Build an AR App?
Augmented Reality app development costs vary greatly depending on different factors (the type of your AR app, AR content creation, AR app complexity, development partner's location, and many more.
You need to be ready to invest $60,000+ to create an app for a single platform (iOS or Android). The cost can reach $500,000 and even go far beyond this sum.
