Need to have phone in viewer the correct way round to navigate properly and the app doesn’t make it clear which way that is. Three locations were missing from the urban hike (London, New York and Great Barrier Reef) but the locations there were just like google street view. I need spectacles for reading but the images weren’t very clear with or without them so it would be useful to adjust settings for users vision. The Arctic journey is too blocky for my liking; I prefer a realistic/photographic image but the concept is brilliant for the apps showcased. The best use of VR would be for exploring tourist attractions, beauty spots and museums. Historical sites could be overlaid with AR to show how the place was used in its prime. I have a meditation app with photo-real images and no issues with clarity for me so it is possible to achieve; so I won’t be installing any of the apps shown here. Fantastic concept though for certain applications.
Good start but needs work
The tutorial demo is really the only thing that seems to work yet. Out of that my iPhone 6S fades out to black and becomes inactive in the main menu. The attached apps like vrse are pretty blurry. A few more options could be included other than just the tutorial (which is really good) but disappointing that nothing much else seems to work yet.
This update is beautiful. It showcases brilliantly what makes VR so amazing. My jaw was dropping all the way through the update, and now having permanent settings to relax in and interact with, rather than the 360 video approach they had previously taken, is insane. Give it a try, although it apparently now has an iphone 5 minimum requirement.
