"ARKit is a great developer tool for iOS developers"

What do you like best?

ARKit helps developers to think about the rest of the world around the phone and develop augmented reality apps. Through ARKit, developers know exactly what the iPhone and iPad are capable of and can build within those boundaries instead of testing around them. It makes developing AR apps easier through 3 features, just by pointing at something on the ground, walking around that object to capture it from all the angles, and adding it to the AR world.

What do you dislike?

The learning curve is large for 2 reasons. First, AR is a new concept and it is quite difficult for a developer to comprehend and imagine how the kit works. Second, Apple published the documentation at https://developer.apple.com/documentation/arkit, but most of the documentation is quite vague and is without example.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm not solving any business problem with ARKit, just trying out the tool to see how I can create AR apps on iphones.

"What is ARKit?"

What do you like best?

ARKit is Apple's augmented reality development platform for iOS. It has allowed to give a quite peculiar use to the telephone in other fields such as games

What do you dislike?

It is still a product in development and although with version 1.2 several features were released, some others are still pending. It is a platform in development still

Recommendations to others considering the product

The learning curve is something to take into consideration. Although Apple has delivered the development guidelines, they also propose to study and understand the AR little by little and not go crazy trying to do everything at the beginning

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The use of augmented reality to show the different parts of a motor of a copper extraction machine

What AR SDK solution do you use?

"AR for Everyone"

What do you like best?

ARkit brings augmented reality to every iphone running the latest version of iOs. Now the hardest part about AR is spelling it.

What do you dislike?

AR images sometimes seem too cartoon-like or just like video games. This is as much a limitation of phone processors as anything else and can be expected to improve as 3D modeling and volumetric capture gets easier.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ARKit makes it easy to see furniture in a room. We also use it to preview product customizations.

"A somewhat moderate Apple developer "

What do you like best?

It was one of the fastest growing ARKit's on the market with the biggest user amounts compared to Google.

What do you dislike?

I disliked the implementations from the version 1.0 , now with ArKit 2.0 we have seen a drastic improvement over the competitors. Such as 3D scanning the room in all dimensions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It makes us realize house improvements, such as kitchen remodeling how it could potentially look like.

"ARKit Review"

What do you like best?

Allows for advanced AR features for mobile apps. Is produced by Apple so you know it will work with great quality for your iOS apps

What do you dislike?

Difficult learning curve. It may take a while to get to know the tool and become good at it. I have heard, though, that once you do learn it is fun to work with. Very niche technology, though, and not all app users are looking for AR.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have not seen any benefits, except in the possibilities this can bring to your development. ARKit helps you build advanced apps for Apple products

"Is it still a phone?"

What do you like best?

It encourages you to use your phone for more than just a phone. I like the ability to point me to something.

What do you dislike?

Still learning all the features. Takes some getting use to and a learning curve. It does take a toll on the battery life though.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is still a learning process and we are still investigating the benefits.

"create augmented reality "

What do you like best?

ARKit apps allow users to put a 3D image using the concept of visual inertial odometry that takes advantage of device’s sensors to track the world.

What do you dislike?

Only who is using iOS device that runs on A9 or A10 processor can use ARKit apps

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

After handing the iPad over to your co-worker, you have them physically walk through the space. They hold the iPad up in the air, and point it toward the specific feature. After seeing it for themselves, they feel how amazing it is, just as you did when you designed it.

"Amazing tracking quality for augmented experiences"

What do you like best?

AR Kit provides some of the most stable Augmented Reality tracking I've seen, having used many AR SDKs

What do you dislike?

Does not offer an option for Image Recognition tracking.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great if you want to show some Augmented Content in any location or with user controlled placement. Not so good if you are looking for an accurate 1:1 Augmented experience.

"Great implantation for environmental understanding and motion tracking"

What do you like best?

rendering and scene understanding works great. We also enjoyed the lighting estimation features that evaluated ambient light by a device camera. The ability to manage larger maps was interesting.

What do you dislike?

There are some inefficiency the initiation processes and hopefully the new updates will overcome them. Also, we noticed the inability of not noticing vertical planes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used the application to create virtual reality mock ups for the healthcare architecture research purpose. It was interactive and served its purpose.

"So simple"

What do you like best?

ARkit uses the camera and motion sensors within an iOS device to track the environment, and overlay virtual data with a high degree of accuracy.

What do you dislike?

ARKit runs on the Apple A9, A10, and A11 processors, which means that all mobile devices prior to iPhone 6s and ipad (2017) are excluded from enjoying a marker-less AR experience.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Architectural models are no longer bound to the confines of paper space and can now be viewed at 1:1 scale, on-site!
