Ikea Place AR app for iOS11, helps you choose the best furniture for your house

- Adrian Ungureanu

The Swedish furniture maker and seller Ikea has stepped into the AR era by launching the IKEA Place app for iOS11, an augmented reality app that helps you place virtual furniture in your house before you go out to buy it.

The app is compatible with Apple’s new ARKit in the iOS11 so it won’t work with Apple devices that don’t have the latest operating systems. Also, is compatible with iPhone 6S or newer smartphone from Apple.

The app is a good idea, because you can see how a piece of furniture fits in your house with the other furniture items. We hope Ikea will make a version of the app compatible with Android devices as well, but that seems very unlikely in the near future.
