Now anyone can try an ARKit app without compiling their own app with Xcode. Unfortunately, you can't see the camera feed on the screen at all, so you can't really judge the accuracy very easily.

The best thing about it is the ability to pan around simply by moving your phone. No need to rotate with your fingers, etc...Very intriguing.

I don’t know how you do that. I only see a 3D impressive drone view of important cities. But nothing related with AR. If I see 3D free view with compass I can see the zone where I am and rotating the phone does the same with the map. But my camera does not show nothing. Where is AR here? Sorry because may be I don’t see it....
