Real Note – Social AR Network - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

I did not, but fortunately, my cofounder has several years of experience in IT and we found very supportive software team members early in the project!

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Where should I start? I think until this day we are struggling with the computational capacity of smartphones because we run very complex AI algorithms in real-time which can get very challenging especially on cheaper Android phones.

Sebastian is the Founder and CEO of RealNote. He is 30years old and a construction engineering graduate from Germany. In his Bachelor Thesis he researched Augmented Reality in the construction industry which led him to found his company “RealNote” a year later. That was a long time before Pokèmon Go revolutionized AR for mobile phones. Ever since he is scaling RealNote to a social network, where users can leave AR messages behind and discover their surrounding in a new way. As of today RealNote has over 100K downloads with over 70K “Notes” published in 184 countries.

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

Snapchat: Because of their original simplicity and their superior UI
Pokèmon Go: Because it made me go outside and it connected my real surrounding like no app has ever before
KICKBASE: A real-time football manager game, because I love “games” that are based on real events.

How long have you been working on this app?

4 years now.

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

It is hard to put it in words. However, wherever we go we see graffiti or names carved into trees or tables. Apparently, something in us drives us to perpetuate ourselves in places in this world. That is the original idea behind a social AR network

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.

We really worked hard to solve the fundamental problem of Augmented Reality which is persistence! We managed to make an AR experience truly dependent on a geographical location with far more precision than just using GPS. Our claim has always been to be like “digital graffiti” and thanks to our AI-based technique we can really save the digital objects to places in the real world with very high accuracy!

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

The next big step for us is to become a true Metaverse! For that, we will move to the blockchain and enable our users to find and collect the actual property in Augmented Reality! We want to reward the people that use our network by giving them a chance to mine our token by using our app!

We believe that any social network should belong to the users that it consists of which is why we want to transform RealNote into an Equity-Token!

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.)?

First, I want them to go outside and write a AR-message like “I was here” so the world can see it! Afterwards I would love to hear from them what they would like to change about our app or what features we should implement next! I can be reached via Email or LinkedIn and usually reply to everybody within a day.
