How long will this take?
5 minutes (tops!) 

How much will this cost?

1.) Download Halo AR
2.) Go to your Profile page, then tap Create Collection to create a collection (give it a descriptive name & title). Make sure it’s public so others can find & follow it.
3.) Tag your collection by scanning the book/magazine’s barcode to make it even more discoverable
4.) Tap the Create button and follow the 3 easy steps to create your first halo. You can use the book/magazine cover or images inside as triggers, and overlay anything you want on top of them (images, videos, 3D models, audio narration, and more).
5.) Once you’ve made your halos, go to the collection on your Profile page, then share it in one of several easy ways:

  • Share its QR code
  • Share its link
  • Share its collection code

Important Note: For anyone else to see your halos, they will need to follow your collection first.
