Ratings and Reviews
Great content AWFUL download mechanism
When you can finally get to the content it’s fascinating but the download mechanics for the App are horrid.
Downloading a video is super slow due to the file size but if you exit the app or even just let the screen timeout/lock the download not only stops but is lost entirely. When you reopen the app you have to start the download all over again. The final kick in the crotch is that even if you strictly stay in the app and keep the screen unlocked the app will just crash at random and YOU GUESSED IT your download is lost and you get to start all over again.
Shows how powerful a journalistic tool VR can be in letting you see the world and other people’s stories from the inside out. Showing you knew perspectives and actually increasing your empathy for certain situations and experiences
Brilliant content and didn’t have any problems with downloads. They were slow but I guess that’s because they are big videos.
