Upside Learning develops first Layar for an Indian city

Well, Now India is on Layar map, Upside Learning has launched Pune Layar that will let users find significant landmarks in and around Pune city. Currently available for mobile devices that run Android version 1.5 and above, this is the first layer made specifically for any Indian city.
Layar is an augmented reality browser that helps users interact with their location using their phones and receive value added information. Upside Learning has constantly strived to address the multifarious platforms in the technology domain, mobile being one of the most important ones. It is this very commitment, backed by support of its Innovation team that has lead to the development of the Pune Layar.

“We are quite excited to share this application with the world. Developed first time for an Indian city it provides an opportunity to experience Pune city just like a local.”, said Amit Garg, Director of Content Solutions at Upside Learning.
“This is our first tryst with Layar and although, initially, the application seems high-ended demanding a lot of programming efforts, its development has actually been made a lot simpler by the Layar community. We hope that the Pune Layar helps people get timely and accurate information thereby making the exploration experience more enjoyable and convenient.”, said Amar Jadhav, Member – Innovation Team at Upside Learning.
