Ratings and Reviews
I use this app with an iPhone 6, for anybody wondering and the app works fine.
All of the 1 star reviews are all very ignorant reviews, such as somebody trying to use glasses with this? Also, people are saying they can't get past the home screen, but they don't know how to use the app.
I use some of the recommendations and they're ok, I guess, but the Arctic Journey section is amazing! Although the graphics aren't awesome and my v1 viewer has a pretty low FOV, I love using their simple, yet addictive simulations.
Although, with a few apps the button doesn't work to move, but that may just be the ad placement. As a whole, this product/app would be 4.85/5 stars. Phenomenal!
When I say it needs more I mean it needs more fixes, more demos, and more choices. I would like to mention the biggest problem. I have my headset set up. It knows what I’m using but I’ve spent up to ten minutes at the “Place your phone into your viewer” and “rotate to navigate back screens”. Also I found the demos hard to use. When I got to them of course. However, I like the graphics on the realistic and the kind of “crystalline and 3D figure” style. But I think the flying one is amazing when I can do it. Although I get 15 seconds and that’s it. I which it was longer because I have to spend 20 minutes trying to get into the demo only to go flying for 20 seconds. Left a bad taste in my mouth to the point where I’ve debated to keep it or not.
Amazing peak at a VR future
Google cardboard paired with any inexpensive VR cardboard device creates an immersive experience unlike any other app you've downloaded. I bought the 360fly cardboard VR headset at bestbuy and it worked wonderfully with this product. I scared my siblings with the sisters app, and did a virtual street view tour of my childhood home. The possibilities are endless. I can't wait to see what future apps take advantage of cardboard. The best part is, the button featured on my VR headset works flawlessly, it seems unlikely that it would be compatible since its apple but everything works as advertised. Playing on iPhone 6s Plus.
