Developers are usually used to developing many applications. One would think that some developers may not be impressed by any application because they’ve seen it or literally done something similar to it before, or at least presume they can code it, but that is not true. So, we asked our developers here at IntCore for applications they were impressed by or loved so much. And here is our list:
Artificial intelligence has been invading every part of the IT industry. It is no surprise that applications and games will be impacted as well. This game requires an inceptor to work the multiplayer mode. An inceptor is a device that turns your phone into a laser tag, where you can shoot your opponent (providing he has an inceptor as well). This game works with your phone camera, notifying you of nearby enemies and creating a real life battle field. You can gather your friends and start making teams and shooting each other in a real life augmented game. Check this link to see how it works: https://goo.gl/xizUlG

There are over 10 million users to Duolingo today. The application is designed where it makes the users feel as if they’re playing a game, all while learning how to speak, listen and write. It starts with basic phrases, verbs and words and as you pass each level, the “game” gets harder. Each lesson consists of audios, texts and images to facilitate the learning process. Duolingo was Apple’s choice of the year application in 2013.

However, your phone needs to have a sensor for this application to work. What is unique about this application is that it gathers all these tools into one application; you do not need to download different applications for different tools.
