  3. Should you be building your own iPhone App? Posted in Mobile Marketing, Concocted by Jason Bagley February 2, 2011 5 comments

    The short answer, no. The long answer, it depends.

    June 2010, Pieter Uys, Vodacom CEO confirmed that they had sold 90 000 iPhones. With the launch of the iPhone 4 on both Vodacom and MTN, I’m taking a guess that there are roughly 200 000 iPhones in SA.

  12. Layar – an augmented reality browser for your phone! Posted in Augmented Reality, Mobile Marketing, Concocted by Jason Bagley April 29, 2010 4 comments

    The Layar Reality Browser is an Augmented Reality app that is currently available for the iPhone and Android based phones. Layar works by using a combination of your cellphone camera, GPS and compass to identify your position and field of view. It then retrieves data based on your geographical position and overlays that data over your camera’s view. Confused? Think of it like this – all you have to do is start up your camera, point it down a road and points of interest, shops, train stations and other places will light up on your phone with details such as distance to the place, reviews and contact numbers.
