ARFOO - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, I am doing computer science bachelors and I have hands-on experience in mobile and web development. I also developed the Un-unsend app which was the first app to let users view the delete for everyone messages by reading notifications and saving into a local database. Unfortunately, I designed my logo similar to WhatsApp and my app got suspended. I reuploaded the app and had to start from zero again, this time with so many similar apps on the app store.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

There were two main aspects I think I should mention. Collecting, converting and uploading models was easy but taxing. The other was and will be to blend the models into the image to make it real. For now I am adding noise to the image and provide some filters to apply but later on, I will be improving it to make the images look more real.

Arifullah is a computer science student at National University of Science and Technology. He is a co-founder of DigibaaD (AR platform) and a part of a few other startups too. He excels in programming and is making Easy Tax for Pakistan in his final year project, which is a chatbot based automatic tax filing system.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

There are many, but can't think of a specific one right now.

How long have you been working on this app?

I have been working on this for a month now. But I think I spent more time finding and collecting the 3D models.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

The app was a result of one main need. It was to be able to view high-quality exotic cars in augmented reality and be able to picture yourself with the exotic cars. Later on, I decided to add every type of models to the same thing.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

Initially, I thought there was no such app but there exists one (AR chat) but it has only cartoonish models. I added every type of models and plan to grow the model collection according to the user feedback.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

Mainly I will be working on making the images look real. The other thing thing of course is to add new models.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

I would love them to use #arfoo tag on Instagram and other social media platforms when posting image or video captured with Arfoo and also check out what others have to show you there.
