Become the King of virtual basketball courts with new Augmented Reality NBA app

If you are into Augmented Reality apps, you need to checkout NBA: King of the Court. You basically search for virtual courts in your neighborhood through the augmented reality browser camera. If you are familiar with Foursquare’s Mayor rating, you will like this because you can become King of the Court if you achieve the highest score of any particular virtual court. The app is classified as freeium, which means its free to play, but it could cost you another $1.99 for more powers, like faster rebound rates.
