For developers, by customizing (using the Sharing API) and posting messages on popular social networks, your layers get pushed into the spotlight and drive additional traffic.
Enjoy the experience
The new animation API includes the option for interactive objects to perform any of several predetermined animation effects. This allows developers to create even better augmented reality experiences by bringing their 3D objects to life and engaging the user.

Easy exploration is key in this release. After extensive usability testing and feedback from our community, we re-designed Layar 5.0 to be more user-friendly and intuitive.
One notable change is that Layar 5.0 emphasizes full layers rather than individual spots within each layer. The start-up screen now shows the user’s favorites, rather than spots nearby. The “Nearby” stream is now part of the “Popular” section, and it displays nearby layers instead of spots.
