Theodolite AR Nav App Extends Intro Sale On New Movie Recording Feature

July 23, 2012 in Navigation (E)

[] Williamsburg, Virginia - Hunter Research and Technology is excited to extend the $3.99 intro sale on Theodolite 3.0 in the iTunes App Store. This novel multi-function augmented reality nav app works as a compass, GPS, map, zoom photo/movie camera, rangefinder, and two-axis inclinometer. Theodolite set a new standard for augmented reality navigation apps when it debuted in 2009. It has been featured numerous times in iTunes, and has been the #1 selling navigation app in iTunes stores around the world.

Theodolite overlays real-time information about position, altitude, bearing, range, and horizontal/vertical inclination on the live camera image of an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, turning the device into a sophisticated electronic viewfinder. Uses are endless, and Theodolite is great for outdoor sports, hiking, boating, hunting, golf, sightseeing, photography, and navigation. The app is used in the field every day by surveyors, geologists, architects, engineers, military personnel, competitive sportsmen, and search and rescue workers.

Theodolite 3.0 was launched two weeks ago, introducing a new movie recording feature with screen/watermark overlays, three large-format sniper-style stadiametric rangefinders, revised position formats with a new decimal minutes option, and color options for photo/movie data stamp watermarks. Since then, the app has broken previous sales records and has been a frequent top ten navigation app for both iPhone and iPad on the US iTunes App Store. "I'm thrilled to see such a great response", said Dr. Craig Hunter, the Theodolite developer. "By far, movie recording has been the most popular feature request from customers, and I spent more than a year perfecting it in Theodolite. It's great to hear about all the interesting uses customers are finding for augmented reality navigation with movie recording".
