I spent much of last week at the Appnation conference in San Francisco, an event for companies that create, distribute, and (try to) monetize mobile apps. (I was reporting on the event for Dice, the online job board for tech jobs). I shot a ton of videos at the event, but here are a few of my favorites.
This first video is a quick summary of the highlights of the conference.
Here’s a silly compilation of answers to the question…
Got a guilty pleasure app of your own? If you reveal what it is and why, you could win a free Samsung Galaxy S phone. To enter the contest, go to Dice’s Facebook page, click on the “Contest” tab, fill out the form, and you’re entered. The deadline is September 30th, 2010.
This next video is another silly compilation video I shot at the opening night party of Appnation where I asked everyone the question…
Make sure you watch until the end to hear the answer from Drew Ianni, Appnation’s founder and former producer of ad:tech.
I have seen many examples of augmented reality in the real world, but they don’t actually work or have any useful impact outside of information on a map. This last video though shows an actual fun and practical application of augmented reality.
