Which servers are used to keep the data for the app. As for the website hosting and domain how much do they cost.
Hello. The app doesn't need a server to operate. It only depends on Wikipedia's free API to get articles in the local area. The app doesn't have a domain yet, but I could include "wikiscope.app" with the purchase.
Does it automatically work on all cities or do you have to add each location manually?
It's automatic. It uses Wikipedia as a data source - so wherever in the world there are Wikipedia articles with GPS coordinates attached to them (e.g. a famous bridge) then it will work, as long as the user is close enough.
How much effort would be required to implement an Android version? Does it need RN native bridges built or just AR asset
It would need considerable effort to set up a native module for Android. But the AR rendering code itself is written in Three.js and should be platform-agnostic.
