Vuforia for an Augmented Book

November 21, 2017 - 10:44am #1

Hi everybody. I'm working on an AR Vuforia app which is going to augment the book jacket and some other images inside a book with some video, images, 3dmodels and animations (I'm a small book publisher for kids). 

At the moment I don't need a Cloud Database because the number of Target Images is not so high and I will opt for a Device Database. I have two questions about it:

1) is the classic license (499$) enough to publish my app on both the playstore and the applestore or do I need a PRO license?

2) once I have purchased the classic license, if I need to upgrade my device database (by adding more target images or changing the augmented content), can I update the app using the same License Key or do I have to pay for a new license?

thank you:)

Hello again,

A classic or cloud license is able to publish and sell/distribute an app on the various app stores. A classic or cloud license will cover the technical use case and allow for distribution of your app, but there is something to keep in mind regarding the developer agreement (https://developer.vuforia.com/legal/vuforia-developer-agreement) when using a classic/cloud license.

Depending on who published and/or owns the book you are creating this app for, you may want to explore a pro/enterprise license. Larger companies and corporations generally don't find the developer agreement that comes along with a classic or cloud license to be appropriate for their application and explore a pro/enterprise license with our sales team.

If you are unsure whether you fall into this category, our sales team is more than happy to discuss your project and bring you certainty. You can reach them here https://developer.vuforia.com/contact-sales

Thanks,

Hi Strasza, thanks a lot for your quick reply ^_^ 

Actually I don't understand the boundary between Enterprise (PRO license) and CLASSIC/CLOUD one. Do I need a PRO when my app is on sale on the store? In my case the app will be free to download on the store, while the book to augment was published years ago ) : does it need a PRO license or a Classic one?

thanks again :)

Hello giannisergente,

The classic license will cover both the Google Playstore and the Apple store. It will also cover deployment to the Windows store if that interests you.

If you need to update your device database later in the app's life, you won't need to update your license. You can continue using the license originally purchased.

Please let me know if you have any other questions on this.

Thanks,

-Vuforia Support
