iPhone, iPad touch and iPad : Realikety

Okay, so you may have heard of this thing called Facebook, right? ‘Liking’ things has become so second nature that it is creeping into just about everything we do. With the advent of augmented reality, it was only a matter of time before we started ‘liking’ everything around us.

Description: Realikety


Realikety allows you to do just that. Using augmented reality, this app allows users to point their camera at anything around them and ‘like’ anything and everything they see. It’s a very interesting and innovative concept but it’s not without its flaws.

This app is integrated with Facebook, but it is not an official product of the social network. That said, a Facebook account is essential for anything to be ‘liked’, the app and Facebook account need to be linked. Once open, the app loads the GPS coordinates to find objects and locations, then users are able to adjust the compass and begin liking.

The more likes an object has, the better the app seems to work, or at least, the speed of recognizing the ‘like’ is more efficient. In high density tourist areas you might find the ‘like’ is instantly recognized with the ability to read other people’s comments and see the total number of ‘likes’ in real time. In less frequented areas or random objects, there might be some noticeable lag. But should you find yourself is a tourist spot, you’ll be able to post ‘likes’ to Facebook easily enough, save photos to the camera roll and read Wikipedia entries for the attractions or landmarks you find yourself in front of.

It seems originally, users only had an unlimited amount of ‘likes’ for anything that was already found in the database. This is easily identifiable, for if you point the device at something and you see no ‘likes’ then it probably hasn’t been ‘liked’ and therefore added to the database. Although the app is free is seems users only had one like a day for new objects before an in app purchase of 99c is required. A recent update looks to have rectified this, so users now have unlimited ‘likes’ without paying.

The user interface could do with a bit of spit and polish but Realikety has a huge amount of potential. Based on the fact that an update eliminated the need for payment to like more than one ‘new’ thing a day, it seems the developers are willing to listen to their customers so here’s hoping that leads to a bigger, better, more aesthetically pleasing app that expands on the ‘like’ phenomenon even further.
