When we're tech junkies, we get called on all the time to help with the electronics. With this app, you'll be able to help remotely, just by drawing in virtual chalk on a live image and writing instructions.

Truly interactive help desk app. This is a truly interactive app, allowing both callers to share views and draw on the screen together.

Truly interactive help desk app
Draw and write on their screen

Draw and write on their screen. Help your friends and family by drawing and writing instructions directly to their screen.

What is it about?

Once you install Vuforia Chalk, you just need to add those contacts who typically call you up for help. They'll get an invite to install the app, which hopefully they'll be able to handle on their own. Then, the next time they have a technological woe or three, all they have to do is call you from within the app.

Why we love it

Once you start sharing the view, they can even draw on the screen themselves. That means Mom or Dad can quickly and easily show you what buttons they've already tried (if they remember). You can also see things they want to draw to your attention. Forget about trying to visualize things in your head, because Vuforia Chalk lets you see it in real-time. As you draw or write on the screen, an undo button lets you get back to how things were before. Probably the coolest feature of Vuforia Chalk is the app's use of augmented reality via Apple's ARKit. Because of this, your chalk marks and writing stick to where you placed them. If you or your friend move the camera around, your chalk circles and diagrams will stay right where you put them. With Vuforia Chalk, you might never have to leave your house again to help friends and family out with their technology woes. This is a handy app that truly makes tech support fun and easy.

App Store Description

Now it’s easy to help anyone, from anywhere, when you can’t be together. Share a live view of a problem, talk about it, and draw on the world with Chalk Marks to provide clear instructions.

If you are the tech guru for family and friends, you know how frustrating it can be to troubleshoot problems on a phone call. “What do you see right now?” “What blinking red light?” “Just turn that little thingy at the bottom!”

We’ve all been there – wishing we could reach through the phone and just point at things to solve the problem.

Until we have human teleportation, we have Vuforia Chalk! Chalk lets you point things out in someone else’s environment by simply using your finger to draw Chalk Marks on the screen.

Chalk Marks are pretty cool. They actually stick to the object or surface you draw them on. It’s like you’re drawing on the world with digital chalk.

Download Chalk today and try it with someone you know. You can use it with:

• Home tech & entertainment – Help someone figure out a Wi-Fi router, stereo system, or all those remote controls!

• Do-it-yourself tasks – Ready to take on a home repair or installation, but want a second set of eyes on it?

• Home appliances – Figure out which knobs and buttons you need for the washer, dryer, or new espresso machine.

• Service calls – Make on-site visits more effective, or eliminate the need for service calls completely.

We’re pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with AR on today’s devices. And we’ll continue to improve the experience over time. We look forward to hearing what you think!

Trying to help someone out when you can’t see what they're looking at is frustrating. With Vuforia Chalk, it’s simple.

See it. Solve it. Together.

Chalk requires an ARKit compatible device: iPhone SE, iPhone 6s or later, iPad 2017, or iPad Pro.
