The Best Virtual Reality Apps
for iPhone, Compatible
with Google Cardboard
By Neil Hughes
Google Cardboard is meant to allow developers and users sample virtual reality in an affordable way, so most of the first apps aren’t quite as polished as a top-tier App Store download.
The exception, however, is Vrse.
This free download features a handful of videos within it that users can download and watch on their iPhone with a VR headset. The videos are interesting, funny, and even stunning.
In one 360-degree film from The New York Times, users can watch as an artist paints a massive image in front of New York City’s Flatiron Building. Then take to the skies — hanging off the edge of a helicopter — and look down at his creation from astonishing heights.
There’s also a 360-degree recording of Jerry Seinfeld’s monologue from Saturday Night Live’s 40th anniversary special. As the comedian talks, you can see celebrity audience members who are part of the opening bit, sitting and waiting for their turn in the scene.
If you want to be wowed by VR on your iPhone, this is the place to start.
