The Metaio SDK hits the Spanish pop scene with boy band AURYN and their new self titled app. Developed by Vanatur World Mobile Solutions, the app comes with five main features – Social, Videos, Radio, an amazing Augmented Reality Experience and + Auryn – to fully immerse fans in everything AURYN.

Vanataur says about the AR function: “The Augmented Reality functionality will give fans even more surprises over time, connecting the online and offline world with “Gamification” strategies. The app is able to recognize certain images caused by actions such as video streaming, links to special content, etc.”

Besides providing an easy way to access updates from AURYN, the app takes the group’s ANTI-HEROES album cover along with various posters and pictures published to their social networks and embeds exclusive content only accessible through the AURYN app.
