This application for augmented reality shopping will make shopping an easier experience for all concerned. One of the major hurdles of online shopping is not being able to envision a product in your home. For example, if you've ever considered buying a couch or another large item for your home online, it's hard to know whether the item will ruin your Feng Shui or compliment the room totally.

This is where an app like 'Augment' will become indispensable. The application allows you to download an image of your potential purchase from an external site and digitally 'place' it in your environment via Android and iOS devices. The app allows you to 'play' with the item once it's in your environment by flipping it, turning it and trying it out in different spaces. Stats for Augmented Reality Shopping Trending: Older & Mild
