I saw the message “You need to update the Aurasma app to see this Aura”. What should I do?


Aurasma technology is constantly evolving with new features. If you are using the main Aurasma app, you can fix this by upgrading to the newest version.

If you are using another app that uses Aurasma technology, please check your app store to see if an update is available. If you are using the latest version of this app, but still unable to see the content, then the app’s developer would need to update the core Aurasma technology used in their app and put out a new release.

If you would like to find out more about Aurasma 2.0 and other Aurasma news, then please visit our community support site:


Please note that Auras employing the very newest features cannot be viewed in apps using the Aurasma 1.x kernel (including skinned apps).

These updated features include:

- Random Actions

- Full Screen View with Camera Still Active

- Time Delay(s)

If you would like to find out more information about the enhanced features within Aurasma 2.0, or, if you would like to contact us about upgrading your Skinned app, then please send an email to


I saw the message “To view this Aura, a newer operating system is required”. What does this mean?

As Aurasma technology continues to evolve it becomes possible to create and view more and more complex augmented reality experiences. Some more advanced Auras contain functionality which can only be supported by the latest operating systems. If you receive the above message, then you need to make sure that you have downloaded and installed iOS7 in order to view this content.

I saw the message “Your device does not support this type of Aura”. What does this mean?

As a cutting-edge technology, Aurasma is always pushing the boundaries of what is possible using the latest hardware. Therefore some advanced features only work on the latest mobile devices, for example 3D Auras only work on higher powered Android devices.
