Smartphones are advancing all the time, and manufacturers are always looking to incorporate the latest tech into their flagship devices, to ensure their customers get to experience the very latest technology has to offer. This tech is then incorporated into mobile products and services, and this is seen in everything from Minecraft Gear VR and mobile casino mFortune games to Google Earth and Apple’s Health app.
Virtual Reality has become one of the biggest talking points in the tech world right now, and we’re already seeing apps being developed and released for iPhone and Android users to enjoy. Take a look below at some of the best to install right now.
YouTube will likely be everybody’s first port of call when they begin exploring the VR world. They’re the biggest name when it comes to video and they’ve made a seamless switch to support virtual reality too. While YouTube VR is aimed at Google users, iOS and Android audiences can enjoy what’s on offer too. There’s a real simplicity to the app too, which makes watching 360-degree videos very easy and highly enjoyable.
The Google Cardboard app is ideal for those new to the virtual reality scene. It’s the perfect introduction to enjoying VR on a smartphone, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some great features to enjoy. The Google Cardboard app allows users to get to explore some stunning environments, famous landmarks and they can even fly through the Arctic too. If you’re new to VR, this is the app for you.
Instagram and other similar photo-sharing apps have been increasingly popular over the last few years, with many of them being used on a daily basis by millions of people around the world. So, how about an app which allows users to share the images they’ve taken when using virtual reality? Well, that’s precisely what Seene is, and it really helps to create a community aspect too, as others can share their pictures for everyone to see.
End Space VR
There are some great VR games out for iOS and Android users and End Space VR is just one of them. Space has become very popular where games are concerned recently and here players will embark on an epic space battle in a stunning virtual environment.
In the cockpit of your own spaceship, you’re tasked with blowing to smithereens all of the enemy ships you encounter, while they aim to do the same to you. It’s fast and furious action at its finest, with graphics that really take your breath away.
Virtual Reality Moon
Every night we will go to bed and notice the moon in the sky, with many of us probably wondering what it’s like up there on Earth’s only natural satellite.
Well, this app created by Andrew Sasaki will transport the user right onto the moon’s surface and they’ll even be able to have a walk around on it too. There’s plenty to see up there, including the International Space Station, planet Earth, the sun and the stars. It might be regarded by some as a simple app, but it’s one that is extremely interesting.
