'Hunger Games' Gets Augmented Reality App18 Dec, 2013 By: Chris Tribbey
With Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games: Catching Fire still making its mark on the box office, Montreal-based app developer Merchlar is riding the wave, releasing a mobile augmented reality app for the film.
Once downloaded to iOS devices, the app offers up a variety of bonus features after the device is pointed at a poster of the film. Bonuses include iPhone wallpapers, the movie trailer, an in-app Web experience and a photo booth that places users in the same room with characters from the film.
This isn’t Merchlar’s first interactive app; the company has also created apps for The Hunger Games, Silver Linings Playbook, Django Unchained and The Legend of Sarila.
