AR Builder is a website that empowers its users to build, publish, and update mobile apps that have Augmented Reality features. AR Builder is designed to reduce the barriers to entry into this space as it doesn't require that the user have any computer programming experience, technical design experience, app store publishing licenses, or software development tools. Furthermore, the price point of $40 per month opens the solution up to a wide range of clients who may have previously considered custom native app development, but who were previously deterred by the high costs of custom native app development.
AR Builder is centered on 'Points of Interest', which is the term given to augmented reality targets in the real world. The service provides its users with tools to manage their targets, and leverages multiple varieties of AR technologies in a manner that lets the user mix location targets with visual targets. AR Builder users can upload or create multimedia documents to attach their targets so that their app users can learn more about their targets by interacting with them in the real world using an augmented reality viewer.
AR Builder also provides its users with tools to easily integrate non-AR related features that we have come to expect from modern mobile app such as maps, search, social networking, contact forms, and blogs / news feeds.Back To Top ↑
While for many AR is a technology that is yet to be discovered; for those of us entrenched in technology and living on the bleeding edge - AR is very much front and center. Due to its highly visual nature, AR easily turns the heads of its adopters - and in an exploding world of mobile devices, smart glasses, and other wearable devices; AR is capturing minds & gaining steam. Just read our blog for examples of the magnitude of it all. While it's great to see big industry names like IKEA, and Volvo experience success with augmented reality; what about the little guy? AR Builder bridges this gap with a new and innovative solution.Back To Top ↑

Realtors, for example, can now create a custom solution that not only gives them a branded app store presence – but also exposes their potential client base to innovative consumer tools that answer simple questions like: Are there any listings this neighborhood that I’m passing through? Or, Can I see a walk through of the property in front of me even though I missed the open house?" ... said AR Builder company founder, Reece Griffin.
