The tools (paid and free) that you use to create AR/VR/MR/XR Apps

Depends on what exactly you want to create. Are you more focused on designing or programming an experience? If there’s one tool you can do a lot with it is Unity. The engine empowers you to create, animate and make your XR programs from scratch and almost all platforms have an SDK for it.

There are several ways you can create AR/VR/MR/XR apps.

We use Unity Game Engine & Vuforia for AR & VR apps though we have yet to develop XR & MR Apps.

Unity Engine is free with subscription charges to remove their splash screen which appears at start & additional features.

Vuforia allows development keys are free to use as long as the app have less than 5000+ downloads.

Though there are more ways to develop such apps.

Unreal Engine is more advanced but better than Unity. It is used in making most games.

Unreal Engine is free to use, with a 5% royalty on gross product revenue after the first $3,000 per game per calendar quarter from commercial products.

EasyAR, Wikitude, Kudan, etc. are also options for the AR app development.

ARkit is developed by Apple & ARCore is developed by Google, with markerless detection & instead it scans the floor or flat surface on which we can place 3D models.

Android Studio can also be used to make AR apps.

Since I have never made an Apps for MR & XR I can’t tell which tools you can use.
