Ratings and Reviews
Ignore the whiners.
Some of the criticisms in these reviews are unbelievably wrong and come from real whiners.
Use a good set of headphones in the darkroom. Be safe. Many of the stories are extraordinary.
I love it.
One request: a list for downloaded videos.
IPhone X problem
Worked great with my iPhone 6, but with my new iPhone X I get double vision when ever I try to use it with my google cardboard. It looks like the stereo images are too close together. I have no problem with other VR apps, so it seems that this app is not calibrated for the size of the iPhone X screen.
Doesn’t give me the cardboard option
I didn’t have a VR viewer, but now I do. I have deleted the app, restarted my phone and reinstalled the app. I have an iPhone 7 with the latest OS. I can’t get the option to use it with the VR viewer. I find this frustrating. *sigh*
