Place and save notes in augmented reality, using PlacenoteSDK!

Placenote is an easy and convenient method to add mapping and precise persistent content placement to your ARKit app. This project shows you how to build an AR Notes app with ARKit and Placenote.

Getting Started

To install ARNotes, follow these instructions.

    • Install Git LFS either using HomeBrew: brew install git-lfs
    • Or MacPorts: port install git-lfs
    • To install, run: git lfs install
  2. Clone this repository.
    • SSH: git clone
    • HTTPS: git clone
  3. Download files stored with Git LFS: git lfs pull
  4. Open the project as a new project in Unity (Recommended: Unity 2018.3.6)
  5. Make sure you have your Placenote API key. Get your API key here!
  6. Load the ARNotes scene from the project window (Placenote/ARNotes/ARNotes) and add your API key under PlacenoteCameraManager.
