We want to make simple augmented reality Application.

For that reason, I want to use iphone's rear camera.

I can take a picture using this application.

But I want to use this application as part of display like "Pokemon Go".

Is that possible use this application?

I look forward to hearing back from you. 

Hello, Nariyasu,

While this Camera Plugin leverages the device's camera, it only provides photo/video capture capabilities, by design.

To achieve what you want, you're going to need to use a different plugin (which possibly taps into the native AR libraries, such as AR Kit for iOS and AR Core for Android).

After doing a quick search, I found these two plugins: one exclusive to iOS, that hasn't been very updated; and another one, which looks like it needs a license.

Hope it clears it up for you.

Best regards,

Carlos Simões
