The ShelvAR app promises to make the life of a librarian a whole lot easier. The augmented reality app enables librarians to easily see which books are out of place. The ShelvAR app places a digital checkmark on books that are in the right spot and a digital red "X" on ones that to be relocated to their proper shelf.

The ShelvAR -- which is available exclusively for Android devices -- is super-simple to use. Staff launch the app and point the camera of the device at a shelf to see if any of the books are out of place and need to be moved.

The ShelvAR app is an ingenious use of augmented reality to help facilitate the sorting and arranging of books.
