Our latest version of SightSpace 3D is now available on the iTunes App Store with some great new features including: support for the new iPad retina display, updated 3D engine, stereoscopic 3D, and the ability to locate nearby models in the Google 3D Warehouse. Have an Android tablet or phone? SightSpace is available for download on Google Play (formerly the Android Market) and also as a viewer (without Augmented Reality) on the Kindle Fire. Not familiar with SightSpace? The app is a powerful tool to virtually explore digital spaces created in Google SketchUp and other programs that read .KMZ files. These include Google Earth, the Google 3D Warehouse, ArchiCAD, and ArcGIS.  With SightSpace, you can walk through models with Augmented Reality, annotate 3D models, bookmark favorite views, take screenshots, share notes and photos, and more.
