The augmented reality Wikitude Browser received an update today to v6.5.1. For any of you that use Wikitude on a regular basis this update brings a much-needed fix for the BBM connection issues that existing in the previous version.
The official change log for this update is as follows;
- Fix: integrated workaround to avoid BBM connection problems resulting in “BBM Connection Pending” state.
- Improved: Faster switching between BBM contacts and normal POI’s in list/map/cam
So if you have Wikitude installed or want to check out what all this augmented reality stuff is about I suggest you head on over to AppWorld to grab the latest version.
