We’re happy to announce the availability of our augmented reality SDK for the upcoming BlackBerry® 10 OS. With this release, Wikitude is the world’s first augmented reality tool available to developers around the globe.
With this beta release of the Wikitude for BlackBerry 10 SDK, developers can create augmented reality experiences from the ground up, or quickly and easily add AR elements to their existing BlackBerry apps.
“We’re quite excited to give developers a head start on creating augmented reality based apps for BlackBerry 10. We’ve been using it internally, and our team has already made a few AR experiences for testing purposes, and I’m amazed! I can’t wait to see what developers from around the world create with the Wikitude SDK for BlackBerry 10,” comments Wolfgang Damm, Lead Software Architect at Wikitude.
The beta of the BlackBerry 10 developer tools was started in early May at BlackBerry 10 Jam, and many developers have already begun submiting apps to BlackBerry App World™. The introduction of the Wikitude SDK now provides an additional tool to help developers and their apps stand out in BlackBerry App World which now contains over 100,000 apps.
“The addition of the Wikitude for BlackBerry 10 SDK provides our amazing developer community with another tool to create unparalleled mobile app experiences for our upcoming BlackBerry 10 smartphones,” comments Alec Saunders, VP Developer Relations, Research In Motion.
The beta version of the Wikitude SDK for BlackBerry 10 is now available directly from the Wikitude website at blackberry.wikitude.com. Interested developers only need to register with Wikitude to get full access to all the documentation and resources available. Wikitude also encourages developers to help other developers via the Wikitude Forum, which has a specific BlackBerry 10 developer section.
