Notwithstanding the lack of serious apps, here are the various Tango-enabled apps, categorized as follows:-
AR Dogs and Cats
This app allows you to overlay dogs and cats in your surroundings. Cute!
The Phab 2 Pro’s camera also comes with its own AR Camera, which can overlay even more realistic cats and dogs.
Transforms your surrounding into a playground sandbox for you to place miniature buildings!
Wayfair View, Lowe’s Vision (Furniture Overlay)
Want an insight on how your furniture will look? These apps allow you to place a 3D mockup in an actual space to preview them. Unfortunately, they are USA-based furniture stores.
Maps and renders one's environment in 3D. One can even make measurements after the 3D model has been processed.
Unfortunately, scanning is slow compared to (Tango) Constructor, made by Project Tango Experiments group. Initially, Tango Constructor was not able to work on Phab 2 Pro. However, early this month (March), the group finally made Tango Constructor compatible with Phab 2 Pro. Unfortunately, that broke compatibility with the original Tango Dev Kit.
Measures dimensions without using a ruler!
An app to demonstrate what area learning is about. Also allows the user to create "Area Descriptor Files", which are files that describe the area.
How does one inspect the area learnt then? Previously, there was an app called "Area Manager". However, it crashes on the Phab 2 Pro.
