Although Augment is one of those apps that's really a challenge to review, it's main reason for existence is rather simple: select a wallpaper (a true wallpaper, we mean a poster), drag and size it to fit somewhere your device camera is looking at. Of course, as all tridimensionality is really a trompe-l'oeil, an illusion, you can replace the concepts "wallpaper" and "wall" for anything else. For example, to pretend there's a brand-new Galaxy II on the table. It really isn't that difficult, just download and print a special mark, set it where you want and play a little.
This app is related to a famous poster retailer. In addition to whatever your imagination decides, you can select and purchase any of their I don't know how many thousands of posters. AugmenteDev has a tutorial at your disposal to skim it through.
Download it if you have a long while to spare squeezing your device camera possibilities, though it can be also useful for interior decorators, set designers and so on.

I love it, hope i can use it smoothly
The underlying technology is interesting and well developed however the app does not allow you to import a model you have directly into the app, it forces you to upload it to their website first, essentially making you share your models with a 3rd party.
This app us awesome, but it whuld be better if u chuld have 2 or more trackers and each tracker whuld have it's own object on top of it.
Pretty freaking cool.
Great app but it's laggy sometimes
