Ratings and Reviews
Frustrating and disappointing
It constantly crashes, I can not even get through 1 video. It actually deserves 1 star, but I'm giving it 3 because the 360 view is awesome. Even if it crashed 1 time on every video I would give it 5 stars, but when the whole point of this is to watch the video, well it fails on the basic thing that it's supposed to do. I want this to work so bad!
Super nice AR stuff to check out
Not great on iPhone 6S
Tried this with the Entertainment Weekly self esteem cover, but could not watch the video because it kept cutting out unless it was aimed PERFECTLY at the cover. Perhaps AR it's not the best way to present a video?
I lack the surgeon-steady hands required for this to work properly, so I did not get to watch the Steven Universe self esteem video; which did little to improve my self esteem.
