Ratings and Reviews
A few months ago I used this app on my dad’s phone and decided once I upgraded my phone I’d use this too because at the time I couldn’t use it on my phone because it wasn’t compatible. Now I have the iPhone XR but every time I try to start the demo it just crashes and I can’t do anything! I’ve tried deleting the app and redownloading it and I’ve restarted my phone but to no luck will it work. I gave it 3 stars because when I saw the VR experience it was amazing but obviously the flaw here is that I can no longer see the VR at all. If I could actually get on the app and use it then this app would get a 5 star rating because in all honesty this app is very amazing in the way it’s animated and the experience is very amazing. But until I can actually get into the app I’ll have to give it 3 stars
When I say it needs more I mean it needs more fixes, more demos, and more choices. I would like to mention the biggest problem. I have my headset set up. It knows what I’m using but I’ve spent up to ten minutes at the “Place your phone into your viewer” and “rotate to navigate back screens”. Also I found the demos hard to use. When I got to them of course. However, I like the graphics on the realistic and the kind of “crystalline and 3D figure” style. But I think the flying one is amazing when I can do it. Although I get 15 seconds and that’s it. I which it was longer because I have to spend 20 minutes trying to get into the demo only to go flying for 20 seconds. Left a bad taste in my mouth to the point where I’ve debated to keep it or not.
I use this app with an iPhone 6, for anybody wondering and the app works fine.
All of the 1 star reviews are all very ignorant reviews, such as somebody trying to use glasses with this? Also, people are saying they can't get past the home screen, but they don't know how to use the app.
I use some of the recommendations and they're ok, I guess, but the Arctic Journey section is amazing! Although the graphics aren't awesome and my v1 viewer has a pretty low FOV, I love using their simple, yet addictive simulations.
Although, with a few apps the button doesn't work to move, but that may just be the ad placement. As a whole, this product/app would be 4.85/5 stars. Phenomenal!
