Are there already any real apps made with ARKit?
I work at frog design in Austin and we just had PartTimeEvil come in yesterday and talk to us about their XR work. There are lots of interesting tech demos and there's plenty of potential but nothing truly useful has emerged that they've seen; in their words, AR apps are still at the iBeer stage. The race is on.
Conduct AR! is really cool and well worth the money
+1! I played this game for over an hour.
The IKEA app and another furniture app called Housecraft are pretty interesting.
No, but i did see some cool Mapbox demo on how to use Mapbox in AR. But, just another demo no app. https://github.com/mapbox/mapbox-arkit-unity
Check the Get Started with AR Section on the new AppStore. Can recommend ARise. But nothing specific for designers jet, maybe Paint Space AR :D
AR solo basketball app, which it is super cool AR basketball app that turns anywhere into a court and you can shoot hoops. The design is pretty awesome when you make the shot.
Sure! At Packhelp we've managed to develop our app just in time for the release: https://www.producthunt.com/posts/packhelp-ar-mobile-app .
Our app should help our clients choose the right size of the packaging and visualise their designs made in our web app.
Let me know what you think :)
Here's a good example of how it can change manufacturing work https://lab.onebonsai.com/arcelormittals-hack4steel-hackaton-43d9a0338a4
Everything looks very overrated to me so far. The most useful ones are made for measuring, which is not something you have to do often unless you're an architect or carpenter, in which cases you have better tools for the job anyway.
Ikea already sells a huge amount of stuff, I don't really think a specialized feature like AR can make sales go that much higher. You don't see people spending a lot of effort or money into mocking up how stuff is going to look like in their spaces, so it looks like a non-problem to me actually.
All other cases look cool on demos, but are not shown in the context, which is: you're holding a phone in front of your face in a very unnatural-looking way.
For a case like Ikea, I think AR doesn't generate sales as much as it prevents returns.

How would you expect to 'see' this? Sounds more like you don't do it and presume your experience to be universal.
I tried that one and it wasn't worth the .99.
The Houzz iOS app allows you to see 3D renderings of furniture in your room. Go to the Shop tab, and turn on 3D as a filter to find supported products.
Build.com has an AR feature
Until the specs come out, it's a gimmick.
You can see all the latest ARKit apps at www.nextreality.tv. It might help.
Nope, none, just nice demos; it's a nice technology but not very useful
Anything useful will not be available at launch. Think about when iOS first launched or the Apple Watch. It'll take a while until useful AR apps are developed and designed with "AR First" in mind.
