Cari Davidson November 5, 2009

Hey Layar Developers!



If you’re looking for a rapid development tool to create your layer, we’ve had a few fantastic creations come up lately, and we thought we’d share them with you.

Provides abstract class that responds to Layar API requests in the appropriate format. By implementing two small functions it is possible to add a layer to the Layar augmented reality application for Android and iPhone.
