Find Your Car with Augmented Reality App

carfinderI’m so-so about augmented reality apps. I’ve tried Layer and it sort of works. Part of my so-so-ness is the rural area I live in that really doesn’t offer much reality to augment. That said, this app, Car Finder, seems like it might be of use if you travel a bit. The name says it all.

Essentially when you leave your car, you mark your location with a GPS fix. Of course that means you need to have a GPS signal for this to do any good. When it is time to return to your car, the camera opens when you launch the app and the app points you to your car, reading out the distance along the way.

I’ve talked about how I use my iPhone to keep up with my car before by snapping a picture and storing it in Evernote, but I’ll have to give this a try before my next series of travels.
