Jungle Xperia Theme_1_resultSony Mobile has launched a new AR (augmented reality) effect into the Google Play Store. The Jungle AR effect brings a cute tiger, giraffe or orang-utan into play with the rear camera for your photos and videos. If you are using the front-facing camera then you can watch a snake curl around you, find a monkey sitting on your head of a toucan singing on your shoulders. Head over to the Play Store to download the Jungle AR effect – make sure you have AR effect v3.1.1 or higher for it work.

    Nice move again

  • Timel

    The world needs a cool and useful AR innovation like Microsoft did with their HoloLens not this stupid AR from Sony, a junkcompany.

  • fluxx

    If only they would invest their time in useful apps and camera performance and not in rubbish like this. Sony really needs to learn to focus.

  • shhh

    Sony cuts 1000 jobs but the people that make these (plus the ones who makes those awful themes) still get to do these things that people don’t even like.

  • ????????

    are you crazy ???

  • omar

    They are not awful, they are beautiful and funny for kids.

  • Daniele

    And for some adults too :p

  • omar

    Maybe :P

  • Niels d. G.

    I’m pretty sure the people who work on the “fun” stuff are a completely seperate team than those who work on the more “serious” apps.

  • gtop

    Prioritise, Sony, prioritise.

  • Fan of Xperia device

    I still don’t understand the point of these kind of apps. Is ar effect a popular thing in japan?

  • Vasilis K.

    Sony, forget about Lollipop! Give us more AR!!!!! LOOL!!! :P

  • roeshak

    They fucking spend so much time on all this crap. Do these guys actually have a clue who their customers are? It’s no wonder they’re going out of busines!
    Somebody needs to slap these idiots back to reality!!!

  • joseph carmine nero

    it is very popular with kids.as a teacher i use it a lot to entertain and change the mood of class.so what’s your problem everybody?

  • christere

    So in a class you take out your phone and start taking picture of the class and show to them, to change the mood?

  • ShinOrochiX

    Hahaha… ‘focus’-camera, get it? -_-

    Yeah completely agree with you bro.

  • gmfady

    wt a nice cute AR effects ?

  • joseph carmine nero

    yes I do.thats what i said didn’t I?

  • christere

    Just clarifying. I was hoping I misunderstood.

  • Timel

    THIS BEAUTIFUL! I WISH FOR LEMAR AND OTHER JUNGLE ANIMALS WERE IN PICTURE WITH ME! BEAUTIFUL APP SONY! MAKE MORE! APPLE AND SAMSUNG DON’T HAVE USELESS FYI APPS LIKE THIS! :(

  • jep

    You teach kindergarten?

  • RealityCheck2015

    I was going to say ‘WHY’??? But after seeing that cute baby Lion(Cub or is it Cubs) :D i want to try it :D

  • Barend Stapelberg

    Who uses this AR crap?

  • materialisok

    this app is for kids, and sony for once is doing the right thing. not all apps are meant for young single techno geek adult. the market is larger than this select group. methinks this is good

  • materialisok

    ok, sony is floundering in a lot of places, they dont have their strategy in place. however, they need to focus on all sides to become a popular device maker/ platform. ignoring the family and focusing only on tech/ geeks only would also be a big mistake.

  • Timel

    Sony is pure shit, shitty Sony has no idea to make something cool and useful. The world needs a cool and useful AR innovation lik HoloLens not this stupid AR from Sony, a junk company.

  • Seems like two people are commenting using Timel’s name….

  • joseph carmine nero

    no and yes at the same time.i teach at two places one for special children(with some disorders and some physical disablities) and I also teach various languages

  • joseph carmine nero

    Why hoping you misunderstood?i don’t see any negative thing here

  • Ali Bach-Tobji

    The upadate will be released in Mars…

  • roeshak

    Nobody’s asking them to focus on tech geeks. They just seem to spend so much time on these pointless exercises that achieve nothing. How many kids own xperia flagships?

  • roeshak

    I suppose the problem is in the wake of bad news after bad news from Sony mobile, we’re all just waiting to hear something uplifting and AR fun announcement is just very irritating so I totally understand the frustration expressed in the comments. I felt the same way too and immediately!

  • doraemonboi

    Xperia Z series getting Lollipop Update soon?

  • Flythe

    You again? Mr or Miss Timel, I really don’t care about your very existence at all, but it makes me furious, that somebody like you, not knowing anything at all, keeps blabbering bullshit like this. Of course, Microsoft’s Hololens is a great invention, but it hasn’t got to do anything with this application. May I remind you, that Sony, too, works on two VR/AR devices, namely on Project Morpheus, which will probably be a device dedicated for gaming, and Smartglass, which has a similar purpose as Google Glass. Before you start whining, that these products are just stolen and nothing innovative – I’m sure you’re going to do that, it seems to be the only thing you’re capable of – yeah, there have similar products been introduced first, such as Oculus Rift and, as I said before, Google Glass, but even those have predecessors.
    I appreciate those little gimmicks, they’re quite fun. And does any other OEM feature these? I don’t think so. Sony IS innovative, it’s you, Mr or Miss Timel, who is just too ignorant to notice it.
    I can’t deny the problems Sony Mobile Communications has at the moment, due to the bad sales, but they’re improving. They’re improving a lot. Even if they release such apps, which seem to be pathetic to you, I’m sure they’re trying their best to develop a product, that even you would like.
    However, one more thing, I’m fine with you criticizing Sony, it’s your right of free speech after all, but you haven’t told us any reason for your opinion. Sony is a “junk company”. But why, Mr or Miss Timel? As long as you cannot point that out, your opinion is irrelevant. Moreover, it’s worthless. Sony sucks, I get it, so tell me something, you haven’t told me dozens of times before or finally shut up. You’re wasting my time, you’re wasting your time, but much worse, you’re wasting my time. Get the fucking out here!

  • Edo

    I have found one. Opinions may differ, but did this app do any harm to you? Does it turn Xperia smartphones into worse devices? It’s of no use for you, I do understand, but I actually like these little AR apps. Nobody else has them and they’re quite fun. I’d like you to stop whining, but rather, tell me what you would like to be improved or added, instead, please. Griping doesn’t take us anywhere, so make some suggestions, instead”

  • mUSICA

  • joseph carmine nero

  • Tsakane

    How sure are you? Next week? Z2? Will it be getting it with the Z3? It should be. However I don’t trust these android OEMS when it comes to updates. Dude the wait is killing me.

  • Timel

    Idiot! Only brainless Sony fanboy can think like this!

  • Timel

    FOOL! ONLY IDIOT WOULD COMPARE CAMERA APP TO AUGMENT REALITY FOCUSED PRODUCTS.

    ONLY DUMB TROLL WOULD THING HOLOLENS AS USEFUL EVERYDAY THING TO WEAR ALL DAY!

    I USE WORD LIKE “INNOVATION”, BUT DON’T REALLY KNOW MEANING OF IT, OR HOW TWO TOTALLY DIFFERENT THING MAKE NO SENSE BEING COMPARED TO ONE ANOTHER

  • Timel

    EXACTLY! JUST LIKE BRAINLESS DUMB TROLL. I COME HERE JUST TALK SHIT, BUT I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING MYSELF. ONLY STUPID IDIOT TROLL THINK LIKE THIS!

    WASTING TIME COMING TO SITE JUST TO SAY STUPID SHIT THAT DON’T MAKE SENSE. I DUMB LOSER IN REAL LIFE, BUT AS TROLL ON INTERNET I DUMB WINNER!

  • Timel

    OF COURSE I CRAZY. I COMPARE A DEVICE FOCUSED ON DELIVERING AN AUGMENTED REALITY TO A SIMPLE FUN CAMERA APP

    ALSO STOP MAKE CRAZY PHONE CAMERA AND MAKE BETTER CAMERA

    STOP MAKE SMARTPHONE AND JUST MAKE REGULAR PHONE

  • wawo

    I use this AR effect with my 3 yrs old niece and she’s very happy with it, so its not useless.

    HOPE SONY WILL DESIGN z4 LIKE THIS:
    http://www.xperiaz4.com/xperia-z3-vs-xperia-z4/

    WITH THIS EPIC THEME, SQUARE DESIGN, MAYBE ARC BACK.
    Would be awesome. Can’t wait for Z4. Always wanted bigger, hence still dreaming about Z4 Ultra with the same best camera as normal Z4. If it will have worse, will choose normal Z4, again smaller screen than ultra :(

    Can anyone explain me why Z compacts can have the same camera while Ultra needs to suffer worse? What’s the reason?

  • Timel

    Sony is the best company in the world!
