Augmented Reality iPhone – June Stats
June was a busy month for iPhone developers, with 42 new augmented reality applications being published to the Apple App Store. In addition, there were 57 updates to existing augmented reality application over the month.
None of the applications (in June) had taken advantage of the new iOS4 APIs. We expect to see those rolling out over the next month.
For the data below we re-categorise every application rather than use the App Store categories. Brower’s were the most popular category this month due to a number of city guides being released. Utilities shows an increase since we also started tracking Barcode Scanners and QR Code Readers this month
