What is Try on app?



This is a Gallery.
In the  app, users can view all models of glasses available for sale in augmented reality directly on themselves. At the same time, users can change the color of the frame and the color of the temples. Each model of glasses is a photorealistic 3D model of existing glasses, which gives a real idea of how the glasses will look on a person.

This is Uniqueness.
If there are any questions, users can contact support directly in the app by selecting the appropriate section and get an instant answer.

This is Social Activity.
After trying on glasses, the user can take a photo or video with glasses and send them to his or her social networks, as well as show their relatives and ask them which one is better.
Video is recorded with sound, which makes this feature indispensable for Instagram bloggers who like to communicate with their audience and receive feedback.






Face identification



This is Personalization.

The app does not just try on glasses, it is able to collect information about the user’s face according to the following parameters:
-face shape of a person;
-distance between the pupils;
-distance between the extreme points of the eyebrows;
-nose width at a certain level.

The app also makes a face card, which is also sent to the manufacturer. The collected data is transferred to the production unit to create truly unique glasses that meet the requirements.

This is Care.

If there are any questions, users can contact support directly in the app by selecting the appropriate section and get an instant answer.









This is Database.

After trying on glasses, the user undergoes the registration, where he enters his last name, first name, address, contact phone number, email address.
Also, the app allows you to track the favorite models of each user and conduct research on the most popular models.

This is Navigation.

Each user can open a section with optician’s and obtain data based on the location for the three nearest optician’s-partners. From this menu, the user can go to Google maps and select the way without wasting time. This greatly simplifies the process of attracting customers to stores.

This is a Solvent Target Audience.

The app uses ARKit and FaceID technologies developed by Apple, which works on the latest phones and tablets, which helps to make assumptions about the solvency of app users.
