Snipp Launches A Groundbreaking New Augmented Reality Solution and Powers Latest Issue of Student Talk Magazine

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLOMBIA--(Marketwired - July 26, 2013) - Snipp Interactive Inc., an international provider of mobile marketing solutions listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (TSX VENTURE:SPN), today announced the official launch of its augmented reality product, SnippAR.

SnippAR (http://ar.snipp.com) allows marketers to deliver seamless and immersive augmented reality experiences for their customers. Users can unlock interactive content by simply holding the opened app in front of an augmented reality trigger. A trigger can be an image, physical object or certain geographic locations.

There are many useful applications for augmented reality including virtual visits, 360º tours, store & location finders, training & education programs, interactive maps, print-to-mobile activations, product catalog activations and virtual gaming.

The product debuted in the Middle East market under the brand SnippKhayal with Lexus as its first client. SnippKhayal is available for download on iTunes and Google Play.

Snipp has received vast interest in the technology from leading brands, both regionally and globally. They will soon be launching a specific AR solution for the North American market.

Following the product's early success, Student Talk, a specialized magazine published by the PH7 Publishing house, used SnippAR to drive engagement and interactivity in the latest issue. Users downloaded and opened the Snipp Khayal app to unlock interactive videos within the magazine. Student Talk is the first magazine in Kuwait to use AR technology.

Aya Kabbara, Managing Director of Snipp Middle East, said, "Publishers in Kuwait are beginning to see the power of Augmented Reality. It is a great way to interact and engage with readers on a one-to-one level. Magazines like Student Talk are positioning themselves as leaders in this emerging space by becoming early adopters of Augmented Reality technology."
