Mobilizy is an early pioneer in commercial augmented reality and the creator of Wikitude, which is the first practical augmented reality (AR) mobile application. Wikitude gives the user data about their surroundings, nearby landmarks, and other points of interest by overlaying information on the real-time camera view of a smart-phone.
Mobilizy GmbH engages in the research and in-house development of location-based services and augmented (mixed) reality experiences for smart-phones. Mobilizy is one of the leading innovators in developing new methods and applications for data acquisition and exchange in the emerging market of augmented reality.

The WIKITUDE API enables any Android developer to seamlessly integrate the award winning WIKITUDE Augmented Reality (AR) camera view within any custom Android application.
