Zalando Adds Layar SDK to iOS App for Special Holiday Issue

Chris Cameron November 26, 2014

Zalando, Europe’s leading online-only shoe, fashion and accessory retailer, has integrated Layar’s technology into its iOS app to provide an exclusive Augmented Reality experience with the holiday issue of Zalando magazine for users in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

15 pages within the magazine have been made interactive, giving readers a unique print-to-digital shopping experience that connects items in the magazine with their digital counterparts on the Zalando website. A variety of Augmented Reality features wow readers as photography comes alive with behind-the-scenes videos, and 360-degree experiences give them new views of top products, and much more.

Using the Layar SDK, Zalando has incorporated Layar’s Augmented Reality and Interactive Print technology directly into its own existing app for iOS in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. By keeping users in the same app, the Layar SDK enables a more familiar interface for Zalando’s readers to experience the interactive AR elements of the magazine.

“This new feature is a great opportunity to offer our customers additional inspiration for gifts, festive outfits or even their own wish list,” said Arne Schepker, Vice President of Brand Marketing at Zalando (translated from the company’s German press release). “With videos, music and 3D views, we encourage interaction with our customers and make our brands and products even more vivid.”
