Within the scope of the Mobile World Congress today, Mobilizy introduced Wikitude 4.0 for the iPhone, making the most up to date version of the augmented reality browser for smartphones accessible also for the Apple phone. The new app can be downloaded directly from the iTunes store (bit.ly/9mkYWg) and is also available for Android and Symbian phones. It showcases Mobilizys concept of a native browser integrated augmented reality application for the first time.

By using Wikitude 4.0, the user is now able to see even more real-time information through the view finder on the screen of his phone. Geocoded data from services such as Flickr, Qype, Wikipedia, YouTube, Twitter, user generated content and the variety of 50 further so called „worlds“ broaden the view on reality. Users have the option to edit and configure these individual worlds online on wikitude.me and fade them in or out as they like. This is how users create their own individual augmented reality, their own world so to say, on their iPhone. It’s simple and users don’t have to have any programming skills.

More information, more clearly presented
It is vital that the large amount of information of Wikitude is made available in an intelligent and easy to use way. That’s why Mobilizy designed an entirely new user interface for the Wikitude 4.0 browser that convinces through its self explaining structure and easy handling. Toolbars, bookmarks and search history help each user to organize his personal augmented reality.

"Wikitude 4.0 is a very big step for us and for augmented reality as a whole. The new release is very close to being a totally native integration for a web browser. AR is a lot more than just another marketing or navigation tool. Its main function has been around ever since people started using technology to create worlds by using media. You could compare it to time stamps on photos, sound tracks of documentary films or special effects in movies. All those examples show how aspects of reality are enhanced by adding additional, relevant information. Through the technological development of smart phones, factors like mobility, geological position and real-time computing play an important role as well,“ Philipp Breuss-Schneeweis, CEO of Mobilizy.

Mobilizy drives standardizing of augmented reality
Being the provider of the leading augmented reality browser Wikitude, Mobilizy aims to drive the standardization of augmented reality further. "Since augmented reality will be an essential influence on the way we perceive reality in the future, we are currently working on setting standards that define AR within the World Wide Web Consortium. This includes creating a special augmented reality mark-up language,“ says Breuss.

About Wikitude
Wikitude World Browser presents the user with data about their surroundings, nearby landmarks, and other points of interest by overlaying information on the camera-view of a Smartphone bringing information from the internet into context with the real-world.

Wikitude drive wins NAVTEC Award
Only two days ago Mobilizy won the 2010 NAVTEQ Global LBS Challenge with their mobile LBS application Wikitude Drive, which is a turn-by-turn navigation system based on NAVTEQ® maps that utilizes an augmented reality camera mode and text-to-speech instructions.

The Wikitude World Browser can be downloaded in the Apple App store for free.
