This is our love letter to the emerging art form of Cinematic VR.

• What it is: beautiful immersive stories — award-winning VR documentaries, animation, music videos, horror, + more
• Photo-real people & places: everything is captured with cameras or rendered CGI
• Quality > Quantity: we hand-pick only the best from independent creators, studios, and film festivals from around the world every month
• Hi-res: if you download the experiences (streaming is fast but lower res)
• Free: no charges, no ads
• What it isn't: an interactive VR game (though we love those too!)

With love,
The Within team


• Within works with Google Cardboard and Cardboard-certified VR viewers
• No headset? No problem! The app offers a 360 mode in which your phone becomes a “magic window” into the VR experience
• For the best viewing quality, download each video (streaming is also available but a fast connection is necessary for high-quality video)
• Be sure to use headphones or earbuds for realistic 3D spatial audio

Good. Set expectations before use

This feels like a proof of concept which is well done. If I can find fault with it then it isn’t the App but the medium. Holding an iPad in front of your face for more than a few minutes gets tiring on the arms. If this were on VR glasses then it would be superb.
Try the “Space Walker” movie. It is short, with fabulous all round views. The others I tried felt too long with less to look at and more of someone just prattling on.

It’s the best 🤩🤩🤩🤩

The within is one of the VR games I had ever played I was struggling to find an app for my google cardboard but this one caught my I as soon as it finished downloading I went on it strait away the first one I watched was the birth one with the baby inside the train almost made me fall to the ground I felt my legs just go dead it was so hypnotic I couldn’t look away and then I saw a beautiful child so if you are looking to get this app I would definitely recommend it 😊

I love VR and what an incredible way to view it... with a phone and a cardboard viewer! Should be in the shower getting ready for work, but nope, have just been to the MOON! I watched Spacewalker as recommended. It’s amazing!
