Augment This!

Club Crawl Layar App

Posted By on Fri, Apr 15, 2011 at 12:46 AM

This is another step in our effort to cyborg us all. We now offer a beta test version of our Club Crawl app, which can be accessed by downloading the Layar app (the augmented reality engine) through your Android, iPhone, Symbian or Bada (???) phone. Sorry, Blackberries.

For the time being, you need to download the Layar app to gain access to our goods. Using Layar, search for "Club Crawl." Adding it as a favorite would be a handy touch.

Once the layer is loaded, the locations of Club Crawl participants are overlaid on top of your reality so you no longer have to carry around a map or schedule. You can still forget where you parked (guilty here), although that's an idea for a future release.

If you would like, please send in your photos and comments to clubcrawlphotos@gmail.com. These will be put on the app as long as geolocation coordinates are included either in the photo's metadata (usually automatically applied if GPS is enabled on your phone) or if you choose to sorta kinda pinpoint your location using a tool like http://itouchmap.com/latlong.html (find the location of the photo and send the latitude and longitude coordinates).

Email any questions to clubcrawlphotos@gmail.com
