We are living in the 21st century but we’re well familiar with the lifestyle of our ancestors as well. We know how they used to live, what outfits they used to wear, what were their staple food and many such things. But how do we know all that? After all, we have never seen them doing so and neither did they have any camera so that they could leave the pictures behind. So from where do we get all the information? Well, our ancestors were not as wise to invent a camera but they were smart enough to draw pictures on walls which depicted their culture. There are many paintings found from excavations that are used as reference. It’s like creating a mark on the big picture of the world so that if somebody visits that point at a later point of time, he gets to know about your presence and understand whatever you wanted to convey. Isn’t that a cool way of communication!
So today we’re going to retrace that old method with a new style. I’m talking about the latest Android app called ARoglyph that has been developed by ARoglyph. The app is compatible with all the devices running Android 4.0 or any later version of the OS. It’s also compatible with Android Wear.
ARoglyph is a smart way to communicate with the world. All you have to do is write down your message or take a picture and mark it on the map. You can also add an audio clip. The mark can be used for any purpose. For example, if you own a bakery shop and you want people to know about your business, simply put a picture of your shop with a name and it will be visible to all the people in a radius of up to 1000 meters. It can be a great marketing tool in that sense. But there are many other uses. You can mark the location of your car and find it easily when you come back. You can invite others for an event you’re organizing. In other cases, you can mark your location and let your friends spot you easily. So the possibilities are endless.
When you put a mark on the map, you have complete control over it. You can make it public or keep it limited to some users only. Also, the time for which your mark is visible can also be customized from a minimum of 20 minutes to a maximum of 3 months. Another very good feature is the ability to vote. You can vote on others’ marks and they can vote on yours. You can either vote for or against the mark and you can also share it on other social platforms. So if your bakery shop is really good, you’re sure to soon have a lot of customers. It’ll also add to your list of followers.
So I’d say that ARoglyph is an amazing tool to communicate with your nearby people. The app is available for free in the App Store.
Pros: great way to communicate with nearby masses; add text, picture or audio; public or private marks; vote for or against; customizable marks; free.
