3D Magic has released Realikety, a new augmented reality social networking app that lets users “Like” real world places and objects. Designed to take the concept of social networking beyond the online space of websites, photos and videos, Realikety allows users to capture and “Like” anything they can see with the iPhone camera. Likes are counted and displayed in real time and users can comment and share with other Realikety users and read what they have to say about the same things . The iPhone camera and GPS are used to identify objects and physical locations and integration with Facebook and Wikipedia provides the ability to share Likes with Facebook and lookup famous tourist attractions in realtime. Realikety requires iOS 4.3 or later and an iPhone or fourth-generation iPod touch and is available from the App Store as a free download.
