What's New in Version 1.2
Twilight mode added.
Stereography improved to add much more 3 dimensional viewing and immersion.
Great graphics… But no true 3-D
This has great graphics, but unfortunately a recent iOS update must've messed it up, because it now no longer rotates properly when you rotate your phone. Therefore, it no longer works in VR. Hope the developer fixes this someday, because it really was a great app.
102 Seconds for $2
After the credits, the VR content takes exactly 104.3 seconds to experience. There's a day or night version of the same content. The iPhone 6 handles the rendering/frame rate pretty well, and the movement is relatively compelling. Of course, the movement is programmed, limiting the VR experience to angle/direction while in the first-person (er, dinosaur) perspective. Is a sub-2 minute experience worth it? All depends upon what you expect from an app. If you like apps that offer more than a 1 shot/episode experience, then the answer is pretty clear. If you're comfortable with a cheap thrill ride, then go for it.
With purchase of a a Sharper Image VR Headset, it claims several times on the box that the 5 apps are FREE. Now after getting over it, I bought the Dinotreks VR app. It took a few try's to actually get the app to work properly. The fact it asks if I had a cardboard cut out, really confused me. If you are going to have actually company headset packages advertise your apps, you should probably get on the same page with them because you both are advertising two separate things.
