VR ONE Cinema
By Carl Zeiss AG
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The ZEISS VR ONE Cinema app enables you to enjoy your movies in an immersive environment with the lights off. You feel like you are sitting in a 3D movie theatre where you can look around and towards the screen where a video is being played. The VR ONE Cinema app features a simple and intuitive user interface where you can play/pause the current video or select other videos.
• Copy your MP4 movies via iTunes file sharing or instantly watch your videos from your phone’s camera roll
• Select your movies by simply turning your head
• Activate an on-screen menu instantly by looking at the exit doors
• Play/pause your movie at any time
• See your virtual body and other virtual characters in your movie theater
• Re-center your viewport for maximum comfort.
• The ZEISS VR ONE Cinema app also supports 3D movies in side-by-side format
Important: DRM-protected movies are not supported (e.g. purchased movies from iTunes Store).
Please note: For 3D side-by-side (SBS) movies, please make sure that the filename contains “SBS” to be played in 3D mode.
Transfer your movies to your iPhone:
• Connect your iPhone 6 to your computer and start iTunes
• Select your iPhone and go to “Apps” -> “File Sharing” -> “VR ONE Cinema”
• Drag and drop .mp4 / .mov files into the list of documents.
• Movies in 720p resolution are best for watching in the VR ONE Cinema.

Lots of potential... ONE big problem
This app is amazing if I could use half stars I would give it 3 and a half stars, but it has one big problem, you can't add movies you downloaded from iTunes, even though it says this in the description, I went through a lot of trouble to try to get the movie to work on the app etc: trying to screen record the movie so it would be the proper format and non drm protected. In the end though I ended up just having to record the movie with my built in camera to get it to play. I know the vr world is up and coming but this app would be my number one if you could somehow upload iTunes downloaded or any type of drm protected media to the app. In the end though what I'm asking is that please, please could you guys get a deal with iTunes or something so that you're app could be a proved to play drm protected media. If you're looking to download this app though please do... It's awesome at playing all the videos in you're camera roll and for me never plays videos sideways, so if you're going to download this app I recommend to record you're favorite old movie with a screen recorder... AND MAKE SURE ITS NOT DRM PROTECTED, either way I hope you like old movies, because unless you're a pirate this app doesn't play you're favorite new movies, like interstellar or other newer blockbusters like Jurassic world.
Please fix this...please.
Nice but a bit hard to use.
I like the idea of a "virtual cinema". In this version there are other movie goers present in the cinema which adds to the experience. That being said, the app is pretty clunky to navigate. While it is true that you can view videos from your camera roll, there are no thumbnail views, so it is trial and error to pick the video you want to see. In addition there does seem to be some performance/framerate and screen formatting issues that other cinema apps don't exhibit (To be fair, I am using the iPhone 6 plus which the VR one doesn't support). All in all, thumbnail views would make this app a whole lot enjoyable to use.
Lots of potential
Obviously this is a new technology, and as such this app is a bit buggy. HOWEVER, the user interface for this app is a fantastic idea. Just turn your view to hover over a button. Brilliant!
The tracking/accelerometer is not working very well, and sometimes movies play upside down. But all the same, I'm looking forward to future updates. A couple suggestions: add a full screen mode in the media player, and if there's no easier way to fix the movie/picture orientation, just add a button to flip the image. With a little smoothing out, this app could be a huge hit when Cardboard/Stereoscopic tech goes mainstream (right about when the Oculus and Vive come out next year).
