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.
