Editor’s Review

Unfortunately this app isn’t as cool as it could be, even though the fireworks themselves look very realistic. The fireworks launch in the distance – probably a virtual couple hundred feet away, so there’s not really a 3D effect to the fireworks display. Also, the fireworks only show up in the direction where initially launched – not a 360-degree display.  Also missing are any controls to tweak the firework’s settings: explosion type, number of explosions, colors, etc.

It would be super cool if the fireworks launched from a virtual 10 foot away or so, allowing the user to walk around the display.

Publisher’s Description
Augmented Reality Fireworks. You can use it at kids birth day parties or an event in a hall or any time in your homes. A Simple and Powerful APP.

Wow Factor Realistic simulations, but doesn’t really harness the power of 3D technology. ★★☆☆☆
