ViewAR applications support both iOS and Android. However, depending on the selected tracking system, some differences in device compatibility might appear.
Generally speaking, the minimal requirement is for the device to be compatible with either ARKit (iOS) or ARCore (Android). Should a more complex tracking solution be chosen (e.g. for object tracking or indoor navigation scenarios), you device needs to be able to run those as well. In such cases, please do not hesitate to contact us for all the details.
For the sake of simplicity, check the compatibility according to the lists below.
