Heads Up Navigator: 3D Augmented Reality Navigation

By Niftybrick Software released on: 2009-10-07T01:13:43Z

Want to really show off your iPhone 3GS?

Heads-Up Navigator provides an immersive, "augmented reality" navigation experience by overlaying floating 3D labels directly onto the world around you, as shown by your phone's built-in camera. The display tilts and pivots as you move your phone through real space, letting you easily visualize landmarks and addresses near you. You have to experience it to understand!

iPhone and iPod Touch devices other than the iPhone 3GS don't have a built-in electronic compass, so the direction you are facing can't be automatically determined. On those devices, a wireframe mode is provided that shows a 3D visualization, with arrows for manually rotating through virtual space. The wireframe visualization still tilts automatically as you tilt your phone.

All modes show an small overlay map of your surroundings, which rotates in real time with the phone, so you can navigate confidently along city streets. If you face your phone towards the ground, the map expands to fill the entire screen for ease of navigation.

Easily indicate the locations you want to visualize by entering addresses or the names of important parks or landmarks. You can also manually enter locations of interest by directly adjusting a map pin.

Please note, your location may be detected less accurately on the original iPhone model, which lacks a GPS receiver, or when operating indoors, where GPS is unavailable. On iPod Touch devices, it may sometimes not be possible to get a location fix at all, since iPod Touch devices must rely on nearby WiFi networks to determine their location, which doesn't provide coverage in all areas.

You can try Heads-Up Navigator free with this fully functional ad-supported version. If you would like an experience without advertisements, search for Heads-Up Navigator Pro.

Niftybrick Software is an independent artisan software studio. We take your feedback and satisfaction seriously. Please write to us at with any questions or suggestions.

To celebrate the launch of our super-fast Augmented Reality technology, we are proud to announce the release of our showcase app. Over the coming months, we will be featuring more String™ powered projects, games and demo pieces from around the world.

Please note, the featured content is for demonstration purposes and as such, not representative of final products.

by Bully! Entertainment

Have you ever wondered what it would look like if a dragon flew out of your screen, or out of your wall?


by Boffswana

Proto is green, has three eyes and likes to scratch himself sometimes. But he'll go wherever you tell him to go.


by String™

We started an internal project to interrogate potential use-cases for user generated AR content, as well as looking for a cool side project.

We asked the question: "How can users be creative with this technology rather than passively viewing content?"

What came out of those explorations was Scrawl, the first world's first 3D augmented reality drawing app for iPhone.

We have big plans for Scrawl but for the moment, here is a very early preview.


by String™

An in-house experiment for customising virtual footwear, triggered by a poster or print advert. One day, we may all be able to buy our sneakers like this, right from our phones.
