Best Augmented Reality Apps Augmented reality has long sounded like a wild futuristic concept, but the technology has actually been around for years. It becomes more robust and seamless with each passing decade, providing an astonishing means of superimposing computer-generated images atop a user’s view of reality, thus creating a composite view rooted in both real and virtual worlds.

The available selection of augmented reality apps is diverse, encompassing both premium and freemium offerings from a variety of big and no-name developers, but sometimes choosing which apps are worth your smartphone or tablet’s precious memory is tougher than using the apps themselves.

Today I want to focus on three of the presentation apps that I regularly use to supplement my programming. I use them all different and in different programming scenarios. SlideShark How it works: The SlideShark app accesses slideshows that the user has uploaded to his or her online SlideShark account. When I use it: My favorite use for Prezi presentations so far is in my school-age science programs. When I use it: I have used Haiku Deck, to great success, for my Stuffed Animal Sleepovers.
