What's New in Version 1.2
Get a taste of what's possible in VR with the brand new "Arctic Journey" demo: fly alongside Arctic terns, plant a field of flowers, relax under a sky full of stars and more.
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!
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.
Fun gimmick, sorta like stereo photography
Fun to use initially, besides the demos, the app seems to function as a launcher. I couldn't figure out how to access the camera to make my own 3d vr panos. Later, I found the spherical camera in Google Streetview app, that wasnt clear to me at first.
Google cardboard is cheap , but the assembly isn't that clear, they must've hired the people from ikea to create the assembly instructions.
This type of 3d is more immersive than looking at stereograms, but the viewer is practically identical, still fun to look at.
