Augmented Reality vs. Virtual Reality Choose one with the Right Mobile app Development Company Today we live in a technologically demanding world one that is guided largely by trends in the technologies that have been a product of its innovation. Among such technological influences mobile computing/mobile apps are perhaps the foremost. These mobile app technologies - housed by smartphones tablets etc. - have led to the creation of a whole new dynamic of interaction between users their devices and consequently their daily activities. Indeed mobile/web apps today cover virtually every kind of user need possible be it personal or professional. Today the world is scrambling to innovate newer forms of ​ ​mobile app development ​ ​endeavors with the aim of dominating minds as well as markets globally. One such particularly promising avenue is that of shifting reality for businesses across boundaries. It is now possible through certain highly advanced software applications to alter reality - or at least a sense of reality - from the point of view of the user. There are two streams that channel this rising wave namely Augmented Reality AR and Virtual Reality VR. The progress of these technologies is followed closely by the world over both by developers and users.

The tremendous utilitarian potential represented by AR and VR technologies have made them the subject of much ado as well as deliberation. In fact there already do exist several excellent examples of how ​ ​AR and VR ​ make life easier for users. Applications in the safety compliance sector of industries as well as that in law enforcement training and real estate business apps have led to a great deal speculation as well as anticipation regarding the future of such revolutionary technology. The current situation is such that AR and VR lack the crucial feasibility required for effective commercial use. For now the clearest path forward is that of mobile app development. First A Little About AR VR AR is the way of creating a virtual/alternate reality experience for users by leveraging devices that they use. Such technology depends largely on the capability of the supporting device as well as the user’s surroundings to a certain extent. A great example of software-generated graphics enriching user experience is the Pokémon GO mobile game that released some years ago that allowed users to turn their respective smartphones into detection devices for fictional creatures. AR is however only a partial experience. A step beyond lies with VR. While AR arrests the vision of the users VR takes things a step further by taking on their hearing as well. Well it isn’t quite as simple as that though as VR involves on the whole a far more complex design as well as interface as compared to its cousin. ​ ​VR technology ​ involves the creation of an entirely virtual environment which can then be consumed by the users through specially created headsets visual combined with headphones auditory. The application of VR software to the combination of these two basic human senses seemingly transports the user to another plane of existence ‘virtually speaking’. Currently the gaming industry probably the closest that VR has come to commercial use. THE BASIC DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AR VR AR and VR basically differ across the plane of experience that they offer to users. While the former uses graphic/image layering on the screen of an existing user device such as a smartphone to create an alternate visual element. Conversely VR technology makes use of software-generated environments rendered right down to the last detail. Though the experience is definitely greeter in VR both these technologies have their own specific uses neither being completely superior or inferior to the other. All said and done however the cost factor is a major point of difference between the two. It is no secret that VR bears much greater expense as compared to AR technology the obvious reason being the sophistication of the technology as well as the cost of developing it. As far as physical devices are concerned AR is definitely more versatile in its own regard owing to the

fact that all it requires is a mobile device therefore getting the job done without elaborate infrastructural requirements. SO WHO WINS As mentioned above AR and VR cannot really be weighed against one another. This is because each of these technologies has their own pros and cons as well as very different situational contexts. In fact there are instances where the key features of each of these technologies can be combined to work in tandem thus creating a greater experience. CONCLUSION AR and VR are technologies that although of similar origin have somewhat of an inverse equation with respect to one another. They are however headed down similar paths in future with innovation and swift advancements leading to their inevitable commercialization. Mobile app development is currently the most viable pathway to the realization of this future scenario one that is as promising as it is paradigm-shifting. With the HokuApps low-code ​ ​mobile app development platform ​ you can integrate VR and AR abilities in your mobile app for businesses. The mobile app development platform is automated and features deep libraries of pre-configured business modules pre-built technology components a design studio with UI mockups and a pre-built connector to connect all these elements together. The app is further coded to fit into a business’s unique ecosystem. The result is cross-platform apps that are reliable affordable secure scalable and developed at 10x speed in comparison to traditional app development.
