We've heard you! This update brings a few tweaks to make the Skydive 360º app experience (or "UX") better for you. We also hear you on the video quality. Believe it or not, the app was originally created as a test. With nearly 100,000 downloads -- we'd say it's a pass! In order to fix the video, we're going to need to jump out of more planes -- which we absolutely plan on doing -- so stay tuned! Thanks for supporting Gravity Jack. Until then -- Geronimo!

Needs a lot of work
Having jumped out of planes before, I was looking for something that would help get my friends get an idea of what it was like. I was really excited to finish downloading this app (which kept stalking for some reason). However, when I finally had it ready to go, a few flaws jumped out at me. First and foremost is the video quality. It looks worse than my old VHS tapes. The pixelation is horrible and it makes it extremely challenging to figure out what you're looking at. Second, when you do figure out what it is you're looking at, the camera angle changes drastically and the dizziness that accompanies that is enough to turn anyone off the experience. Third, I get that you generally skydive off a small cabin. However, everything seemed to be way too close to my face, which of course didn't help with the vertigo when the camera angle changed without warning. One last thing: you might want to consider including footage from the time when you first get into the plane for a full experience. The first time I jumped it was the anticipation that made the experience for me. The climb, and realizing you're about to jump off a plane, and the first look down when the cabin is exposed.
Work on all that and you will have an app worth downloading. Until then I won't be touching this again.
Seems like it would have been interesting
The footage is really poorly stitched together and the camera angle is changing too often without moving your head that it's just hard to make sense of anything. Once they tweak their methods this could be cool.
Good idea poor execution
Installed, tried for 10 seconds, and deleted. Great idea, but leaves a lot to be desired. The 4 shots coming together when looking down is disappointing. Poor overlapping at the edge of the multi camera set is very noticeable. The quality of the footage is really poor too. I hope they update this with new higher quality videos and I would enjoy it.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
