Augmented Reality app Layar makes App Store return
Layar has been missing-in-action for almost as long as it lasted during its first run, but the company today announced that it has made a successful return to the App Store, the news delivered via Layar's official blog.
"The new Layar Reality Browser has a re-engineered engine under the hood," the company claims.
"This new engine makes the application light, stable and very quick. It is ready to handle all the current layers and it is a good base to realize all of our exciting future plans."
Layar has also added language support to expand its take-up, French, German, Dutch, and Italian all in the mix, with other languages following in future updates.
Its removal was something of a painful exercise for the publisher to undertake, CTO Dirk Groten admitting back in December that "the percentage of users with crashes has grown too much...to justify keeping the app online".
"We dont want our users to be confronted with an app that is unusable due to systematic crashes," he said at the time.
"We take great pride in our product and are very serious about delivering high quality to our users and our developer community."
