We have pulled Layar from the App Store due to crashes

Dirk Groten December 18, 2009

Yesterday Layar v3 was published in the App Store. After a flood of complaints that the app crashes for many users, we’ve decided to remove the app from the store. Sorry, sorry, sorry.



We had issues already since the very first launch of the iPhone app. Unfortunately these issues were due to bad memory management decisions right from the start, something that we could not easily fix without completely re-engineering the app. There is some old code in there that is buggy and we don’t know exactly where the bug is. Since the app worked fine for 80% of the users (and on all our testing devices), we decided to move on to v3 before we would rebuild the framework of our app. We’ve tested v3 thoroughly internally and did not have any issues with crashes when submitting to the App Store. In fact, we still cannot reproduce the crashes that many of our users are reporting right now.



The percentage of users with crashes has grown too much with the launch of v3 to justify keeping the app online. We don’t want our users to be confronted with an app that is unusable due to systematic crashes. We take great pride in our product and are very serious about delivering high quality to our users and our developer community. We’ve already started re-engeneering the app, but this won’t be finished in a matter of days, rather a matter of weeks.



Our sincere apologies to our developers who put a lot of effort into making great content for Layar v3 that can now only be viewed on Android. We are proud of the layers you made and we will put all our efforts into making them available on the iPhone as soon as possible.

Send your own 3D seasonsgreetings

maurice groenhart December 18, 2009

Muzar.org has just launched the new, free and augmented way of sending season greetings.



At the  www.muzar.org one can submit the coordinates of the home / house or whatever from the recipient and add a personal message. You can even choose the 3D model you want to place at that location. After completing the form an email will be sent to tell the lucky one he / she has received a 3D card (with a small explaination how they can view the “card”).



Imagine the possibilities of creating, sharing and giving away public or personal messages and 3D objects and pictures.



Spread the word and make this Xmas and new year celebration an augmented one.

Autotriggers used in AR Music Promotion Campaign with SEEDA

Rhymo December 17, 2009



We just heard that System K in Japan has launched a very cool campaign with the wellknown japanese hip-hop artist SEEDA.



Seeda will release a new single next week. System K collaborated with him to create a promotional layer. In the week leading up to the CD release fans can visit major locations around Japan (Tokyo Tower, Kobe Mosiac, Sapporo Clock Tower). When fans get close to these wellknown landmarks in Japan, the layer will autotrigger an audio sample of the new single Wisdom. Layar users are the first to hear the new track and are also treated with a special video message from Seeda that is personalized for each location.



Autotriggered actions associated with objects is a feature that is supported by Layar Reality Browser 3.0. Any developer can add an autotrigger to an object. Developers can customize the range (when does the autotrigger need to be activitated) and the action can be customized (play audio, play video, open website, etc). It’s very exciting to see this feature of our platform being used in such a creative way.



So if you are in Japan just search for SEEDA in the Layar Browser and you will find the special promotion layer.
