Amazing stories that come to life
High quality reporting that really comes to life with a simple cardboard VR device. Highly recommend. Everyone should watch the report on children of war. :-( I'm not a typical VR user and didn't think I would like it, but brought these stories to life.
Yet more internet connection detection problems. The app is unusable because it is unable to manage buffering appropriately. The developers fixed one problem but haven't managed to implement a working app. Give me the good old days when developers tested software before release.
I never write reviews but this app is simply stunning. It really feels like the future of broadcasting.
