Irish tech company iTagged Mobile Ltd has just launched iTagged into the Irish market. iTagged is a new augmented reality app that allows users to capture, share and discover the world around them. With the launch of iTagged, the company will be looking for 20 people in software development, R&D and marketing over the next 12 months for their Dublin office.
Recruitment is also underway for their US office as part of their global strategy.
The iTagged app is the brainchild of company founder and CEO Keith Jordan. Taking his inspiration from a live rugby match he attended in 2012 in the RDS, Leinster vs Ulster, Jordan’s desire was to not only capture the electric experience in the stadium, but be able to share it with others while viewing their own unique photo and video content.
Available via the Apple App Store, and free to download, the iTagged app works by combining augmented reality with location based services, powerful image capturing and social sharing. Users can tag and share photos, video and information about their favourite locations; message their contacts; follow breaking news stories on the ground, and share their tags across Facebook, Twitter and the web.
“With iTagged, there are a million possibilities,” said Jordan of his creation. “Its applications are really only limited by the user’s imagination. People can share video with family on the other side of the world, leave a restaurant review tagged at the restaurant’s location; or even view interior shots of a property for sale as they walk past it on the street.”
