Join the Beta Test for DropIt AR App on iOS

Make your mark on the real world with a simple tap of your phone, with new augmented reality app DropIt coming soon to an iPhone near you. Reaching out to the Let’s Make Games community, creators Voyant AR are looking for beta testers to put the app through its paces.

DropIt is an app that lets you create messages in augmented reality and drop them at specific locations in the real world for other people to find. Drops stay alive for 3 days (72 hours) before disappearing. But if you like someone’s drop, its life will be extended for another day (24 hours).

DropIt allows people to create their own augmented reality messages and communicate with friends, leave helpful tips for their community or make a public statement about an important issue.

Whether you’re an early adopter, adept app breaker, or even an otherwise average user, your testing skills will help hone this app prior to its official release. All you need is an iPhone 6S or later. To try your hand at this augmented reality, simply visit www.dropdropdropit.com and sign up!

So if you’re in the city this weekend, why not try out some fun new tech for 5 to 10 minutes? Your feedback will help shape the development of a local app.
