    The better content requires payment, no information about that in the description before you download this app. If you do go to make payment, the link is broken so no way to download it. Disappointing, deleting this app.
  • Great Application

    Great idea that lets people feel like traveling destinations they possibly could've never been to. Super high quality. Try it on your ipad. For those of you who couldn't make the app work - your phone might be kind of outdated for it. As the videos are very hq. My friend's got this pretty old HTC, and it didn't work out.

    Visualize where you want to go and what do you want to do! Get a headset or Google cardboard and try this. I especially like the extreme sports, because it makes my dream travel and experiences in a few years that much more real, right now. It's great to drive towards your dreams by seeing them in your head first.

    I am fairly new to the VR 360 community. And I am having trouble finding good VR 360 apps. This one is not bad. I like watching/viewing actual videos of the world and beyond. I am not too fond of "cartoon versions" of things -- and this app delivers a few little short clips accordingly. Some of the clips are a little shorter than I would like ((e.g., the Hawaiian beach presented is just one 360 view of one beach that lasts a couple of minutes). Some are a little farther away than I would like (Zimbabwe falls). But I'm not looking for a grandiose experience, rather I am looking to see new sites around the world. This app does that fairly well. I think it has potential as it continues the development phase and the designers add more sites and adventures. Some of these require a fee to download. Others are free. Be sure you watch for that. I would prefer to pay a one-time fee for the app, then be able to look at all the experiences provided with maybe occasional small fees for upgrades. But that is just a suggestion. So far, I have only selected and viewed the free clips. (I provide the main reason below.) However, all-in-all I'd say it's worth at least checking out the free videos and getting a taste of what this app can do. Again as the app grows and increases the amount/variety of videos filmed around the world and the length of time and information provided therein (e.g., guided tours), I think this app has some definite promise. For now it's limited. I could see an app like this being a MAJOR educational tool in grade schools at some point if it is developed correctly. (One more note: Clips like the San Francisco segment are not so useful. It is fine to show some of the unique parts of the city, but I expected at a minimum, a view from a cable car with Alcatraz in the distance and the cable car bell ringing, Coit Tower, the curvy road, the Painted Lady houses from the park, maybe a Segway tour or two, and of course, a ride across the Golden Gate Bridge as a good basic overview of SF. That segment was disappointing. But it was free so I just offer that as input. But that kind of clip makes me hesitant to actually purchase -- any clips for fear of wasting money on a disappointing video.)
