Important problem with battery
So, recently my phone has been draining its battery, and I went to check Battery in settings. As the title may imply, it said the Oculus app was eating up /50% of my battery/
It had been running in the background apparently. I hadn’t had it open for more than 3 minutes in the past few days, and despite my small knowledge of technology I know it shouldn’t be doing that. Have you heard similar reports, or is it just me?
Besides that, a wonderful app that makes finding and downloading new things easy and convenient :)

Hey Cdeanme, that's definitely unusual for the Oculus app to use that much of your battery. If you haven't already, I recommend reinstalling the app. You may also want to disable the Background App Refresh for the Oculus app by going to Settings->General->Background App Refresh. Please feel free to create a support ticket at https://support.oculus.com if you need any other help. Thanks!
Updated review and Fix for pairing oculus quest
Okay, I finally got past the pairing issue I had where the oculus quest refused to pair. It turns out it was an issue where the iPhone required an iOS update and once I did that, it paired no problem. Developers should please add this to the help with setting up an oculus quest. After that, smooth sailing. App is great, quest works really well. While the battery life will last about 4 hours, it’s still good enough because you don’t want to be in it too long. All the apps and games are great. I hope more become available soon and that more become cross play as I have an oculus rift also and would enjoy some of those games on the quest as well. Beat saber is crazy good! Also, the oculus app has no lag or issues and you can find the games easy. I would like to see a complete browse all feature so you can scroll through every game available - not sure if I missed it. App is same on phone as it is within headset. Flawless integration. I would like to see a power off feature inside the headset instead of pressing and holding the button to shut down. Keep up the great work!

Still no casting (Major Fail)
I love the idea of the go and I enjoyed the initial implementation of the headset. That being said the only issue that I have a problem with now that’s ruining the experience is that there is still no casting or a release date. If you aren’t ready to activate casting then why put it into the app update notes? Also, why is it that despite being a major feature request, there’s zero information about its progress or an estimated release date other than “soon”. If you really want your initial go adopters to push for your product then why take away the one thing that could help them promote the headset to others? In summary, it’s a fun headset for a while but without the added social feature you might use the headset once every couple of weeks just to see if there’s anything new (which there won’t be).
