Ratings and Reviews
When I got a pair of VR googles for Christmas I was so exited this was the one of the first apps I got! It’s so much fun to play with friends espeshally with roller coaster videos and Shark Week videos! Thanks so much for makeing it! It’s my Favorite VR app🤠🐾🤠😎 At first with the new update I was a little confused on how to start the video but now I get it, the update is AWESOME makes the app look so COOL! I was wondering if you could add videos like 3D rides like in Universal Harry Potter’s 3D rides were your like falling or flying! If you made that it would be amazing I love rides especially 3D ones 🤩😸🤠🐾🐾🐾
Needs playlist support
We are using this app with my iPhone 8 Plus and Discovery headset for kids. It works fine and play videos. They look as I’d expect them in VR quality wise.
However the most annoying thing that you need to take the phone out to select next video. This is quite annoying as videos are quite short. It needs some play list feature or a way to pick next video without taking the phone out of headset.
Videos will not play
My son receiver a Discovery Kids VR headset for his birthday yesterday. It was is favorite gift, and he was so excited about the shark videos. However, he still hasn't been able to use his viewer correctly. The videos either will not load at all, or they play audio, and the video is stuck on one image the entire time, with no motion. He is so disappointed, and so am I! I only gave it 3 stars because the content is amazing, if only it would work!
