Ocean View AR – Underwater Exploration - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, I've been developing software for many years. However, working on mobile apps within a game development engine such as Unity is a newer experience for me.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Getting the flock of fish to swim around naturally was a fun AI challenge.

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

Currently, I've been playing around with True Surf. I can't get over how real the ocean waves behave!

How long have you been working on this app?

Ocean View AR took about 6 months of development time.

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

I want users to make their own creations (pictures and video) within the ocean-themed environments.

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.

Compared to other AR portal experiences, I like how Ocean View AR has a feature to make the background transparent enabling the user to bring in the real world as a backdrop to the underwater world. I also like the variety of environments. There are a couple of non-portal experiences such as adding sharks to a real body of water.

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

I would like to add additional environments over time. Future environments may be downloadable.

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.)?

Take videos and pictures and share the results on your favorite social media site!

Ocean View AR – Underwater Exploration

About App:

Step through an augmented reality portal and visit stunning underwater worlds. Take pictures or videos of the marine life you encounter. Visit an array of tropical fish, sharks, sea turtles, and more. Make the ocean world semi-transparent to show the real world as a backdrop to the ocean world. Find a real ocean and watch sharks swim alongside unsuspecting beachgoers!

Be safe! Ocean View AR encourages exploration. Always be aware of your surroundings and make sure it is safe to explore.
