Preview stuff where they aren't.
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 thanks for sharing this with me

The item not appear in my phone ._.
Nice app 4 android phone.I like it
The app works beautifully at first, but after backtracking to load more models, all the menus black out, and text disappears. I need to restart the entire app whenever I want to load something new... Very irritating. I'm also using an HTC one X.
