It really is incredible. An absolutely incredibly beautiful app to spend your time on but the only problem I have is the tracking of your head when using the vr. The screen where all the information about the planets is always in the most awkward position. I start the game and it will be directly in front of me and then i go to a different planet and the info screen will rotate 180 degrees and end up behind me, that's the only problem i have discovered so far, please fix this and the app will be perfect.
Like watching a Ridley Scott/ Spielberg movie! In a word: "breathtaking"! This is one of the apps that make a cheap cardboard a big value for money! I stared agape as I saw the first scene where the Earth and moon stood tiny next to the enormous Sun! If I remember correctly the first app that made me curious about the space was Stellarium. And here is the app that just added more curiosity, and awe, fear to my interest! Experience of a lifetime through a single app! Unbelievable!!!
thoughtful solar system zoomer This app is too slow paced to use as a first VR demo for people with short attention spans. The content at the end: several enormous stellar objects were fun. One can imagine what it would be like look at even larger, or more exotic objects in space. I hope the authors receive enough funding and encouragement to go forward.
Add-On narration doesn't work I'm using a Nexus 5X but this app's FPS is just 23. The narrator sounds like I'm listening with a high speed fan between us. Not sure how to fix this......UPDATE: I stopped using my Bluetooth headset to listen and instead turned up the phone's built-in speaker so I can hear it contained in my View Master. Though the app still runs at around 23 FPS, the audio and the rest of the experience seems perfect. I give 4 stars instead of 5 because I can't jump directly to a planet, out of order.
Using this on a Nexus6P, which was a bit big for the cardboard, still worked though. Wow. Just a superb experience. I did the whole autopilot flight, which really got interesting once you're past the sun. The app ran smoothly and seemed to be bug free. Phone got hot though, and my arms got tired of holding the cardboard, would imagine this on a VR headset with a headband would be unbeatable. Can't wait to show this to my kids!
Awe inspiring I'm new to VR but I've experienced quite a few VR apps and videos so far and this is one of the best experiences with this new platform that I've had! Very immersive and the graphics are awesome. I'm confused about what I read at the end of the tour though. It asked if I enjoyed the narration at the first two stops of the tour. I never stopped and went through the complete tour in one sitting. Am I supposed to take a stop on my own for the narration or is it supposed to be automatic?
* Improved stability for a wider range of devices (LG G3 being the main one). Please note that you'll still need a powerful phone for a comfortable VR experience!
* New checkpoint feature - you no longer need to finish the entire tour in one sitting!
* Updates for Ceres and Pluto based on new mission data.
* All text is now easier to read in VR.
* Small adjustments for most planets and moons.
