Three months ago I wrote a post describing the plan that Raúl Roman and I are involved: build an augmented reality interface using PhoneGap. Today, we have uploaded a beta version (0.1.0) of ARviewer-PhoneGap to Android Market. This version works fine and shows the geolocated nodes obtained from libregeosocial server. The next steps are:

  • We test this source code in IOS platform to check the real portability that phoneGap provide us.
  • We plan to add the “tagging mode” with phoneGap to allow tag new nodes/objetcs from the mobile.

Are very very similar the next images, right? Only we have found a critical problem with the refresh of nodes in the WebView using PhoneGap. We will study and analyze this behavior.
