Number of layers reached the “big 500″!

Redactie April 15, 2010

We are very proud of the great number of 41 new layers which have been launched this week AND that the Layar content has reached the “big 500” in number of layers!

Moreover, country specific content is spreading thoughout the world. Last weeks we had first country specifc layers launched in Israel, Malta and South Africa. This week there are two layers layers launced especially for Singapore (Singapore Dine & MRT & LRT public transport) and also Turkey now has it’s first 2 country-dedicated layers (including a cool real estate layer with many filters: Milliyet Emlak)

The 500th layer to be approved is the HiHD 無線數位轉播站, the second Taiwan specific layer.

We talked to the enthusiastic developer of the 500th layer, Kenny Kuo, from Cyclone Info. Office, who is determined to implement more layers with his Taiwanese software house. He explained about his layer and especially for our Taiwanese users & developers including answers in Chinese ;-)
