Rijeka Connect: Rijeka's Augmented Reality
Rijeka Connect is a tourist application for smartphones based on the iOS and Android platforms that provides its users with a historical overview of the cultural monuments of the City of Rijeka through Augmented Reality. As well as Croatian, the application includes three other languages: English, Italian and German. It displays over 50 cultural monuments divided into four categories (monuments, museums, religion and architecture) as well as an event calendar.
The Rijeka Connect Map can display locations into two different ways. The first or classical display with pins on a map has been upgraded with a filter based on categories for a clearer display, a smaller number of pins and in order to show the user only those things he/she is interested in. The second display is a complemented reality display that shows the user a three-dimensional direction and distance from a specific location. A dual map display works based on the position the phone is held in by the user. A horizontal position shows the classical map, and a vertical position the Augmented Reality map. After start-up, the user can fully enjoy the application even when there is no data exchange available.

The Bike Rijeka mobile application includes around 40 cycle tracks that run through eight cities and municipalities in Rijeka's surrounding area: Rijeka, Kastav, Klana, Viškovo, Jelenje, Čavle, Kostrena and Bakar. The greatest focus has been on the track and navigation display, and you can choose tracks based on the level of difficulty and simply based on the locations on the map.
Track navigation, apart from trajectory, displays the statistics of the ride, completed kilometres and speed. During the bike ride, the Google map also shows nearby attractions and contact information for hospitality facilities, accommodation and other assisting services.
