Home Forum Omnis General Coding IOS Dev : is it possible to Include AR Kit


  • IOS Dev : is it possible to Include AR Kit

    Posted by Rainer Greim on January 31, 2020 at 12:22 pm

    I want to code a mobile app prototype created with ADOBE XD as mobile app based on Omnis 10. As this prototype is also using AR-Kit and Cam, can I do this with Omnis ?
    Or is it better todo the GUI part for IOS with something else and use Omnis as a middleware. Idea is : having this App ( graphics, features ) filled by a backend.

    Hi Rainer,
    With the latest versions of the App Wrapper, there’s now a SDK that allows you to make calls into/out of Omnis to other platform specific features. So, it should be possible to use AR-Kit and Cam with Omnis. You’ll need to write some iOS code to act as an interface between Omnis and these frameworks, but after that you should be OK.
    We haven’t done this yet ourselves, but we were looking into Machine Learning and wanted to use some of Google’s frameworks to do specific OCR functions that would be used inside Omnis.
    The new SDK opens a world of possibilities …

    Hi Rainer,
    I still want to do this, but so little time for “recreational programming”! πŸ™‚
    I was thinking, using the new SDK would also be the way to allow Omnis to interact with Apple Watch – you could build views for Apple Watch in the SDK and then trigger these with endpoint calls to/from Omnis.
    If only someone could pay me for being creative! lol πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
