Feedback on developer feature requests

Maarten Lens-FitzGerald May 21, 2010

Many of you have provided great feedback on the Layar API and/ or user interface. Also you have you provided us with many feature requests. We have now a process in place to decide if and when these features will be implemented in future launches. We can assure you that very many of your requests will be implemented!



A feature request feedback process is now being developed so that you will be able to see the status of your request. We will notify you via a blogpost when this is in place. Please understand that some new features are confidential and/ or of strategic importance - we cannot be open on the details of all implementations.



Trust you understand!

Layar developers and publishers: please test your layers before you request publication

Maarten Lens-FitzGerald May 21, 2010

Layar highly values a great user experience - reason why we have an approval system for layer publications. It is remarkable that of all the requests for publication, we have to reject around 50% due to technical issues (not returning POIs or Layar provider not available). Approving publications takes a lot of time from our technical support team. This can easily be solved by developers themselves if the layers would be tested thoroughly before requesting approval.



Therefore we call upon all developers: please test your layer according to the “Notice” (test instructions) provided in the ‘your layers’ section on the Developer site. Please understand that if we have to reject your layer because of improper testing, we will not give it the highest priority when you re-request publication.

Calling out Layar developers: please help us help

Maarten Lens-FitzGerald May 21, 2010

Dear Layar developers, the growth in the amount of brands, publishers and developers getting active on Layar is accelerating. This is of course great news for Layar and for the entire Augmented Reality business, but also means that there is a growing amount of questions and issues to be solved.



We are still a small team and cannot answer all questions within a reasonable time period. It would be of great help if you could answer or reply to questions being asked on the Google Group.



People like Jens de Smit are a great example of fantastic developers providing help here. We hope that more developers can follow this great example and help to grow the Augmented Reality ecosystem!



Many thanks in advance!
