It's finally that time of the year again! We're a few months into 2021 and the moment has come to bring you what we think are the best apps you need to try on your custom branded Google Cardboard.
ImmerseMe is an award winning app that teaches new languages. What makes this app special is that it places you in different life-like scenarios where you can practise your new skill as if you were in the actual country! Want to learn Japanese? You will be taken virtually to Tokyo to order a bento box. If you're more about Spanish you'll be trying out tapas at a restaurant in Spain!
This is definitely one of the best VR apps to learn and practise up to 9 new languages in 3000 different scenarios with 4 levels of difficulty.
We know what you're probably thinking. Google Expeditions still? Well, this app has found a way to stay current while teaching. What originally started as a classroom app quickly became an all-time favourite for people of all ages, including us! It doesn't matter if you're not in school anymore, once you start using this app you'll turn into a student again, being guided through the wonders of the world. Go to places you've never seen like the desert or submerge underwater to see a coral reef!
3 vTime XR
This app’s tagline is very self explanatory. Download vTime XR and participate in this virtual reality social network for Google Cardboard. You’ll be able to meet new people, chat and share your photos.
The best parts are it’s cross-platform, so whether you’re using Cardboard, Occulus Go, Samsung VR or different hardware you can still connect with people from all around the world.
This game, which reminds us of InCell, combines a bit of decision making strategy and neuroscience of the human brain. A head scratcher, right? :)
While taking a trip inside the carefully recreated human brain, you’ll help forge John’s future, a teenager becoming an adult. Be a part of John’s decision making and see how emotions can affect a person’s decision and subsequently their future!
This app brings you new content every week and partnerships with top publications like Associated Press, FashionTV, Pitchfork and Time Out.
You can take a trip through New York or London; see the master pieces from Salvador Dalí and Monet from the inside; or experience music like you are right there, at the center of the stage.
Travel under the sea with The Economist, walk with penguins from Birdlife, Inception has something for everyone, even fighting bunnies!
We now that we might make a few eyebrows raise, or even generate a slight controversy calling Netflix the "movies & series giant", but this service which also includes documentaries and kid's shows has separated itself from it's competitors in 2 different ways:
- It reaches more countries, making it easier for more users to access more content.
- It has launched it's own VR version for watching movies, series, their original content and much more material you can find in their channel.
While the app definitely has some polishing to do, we definitely think it's an experience worth trying.
We know this app is certainly not new, but we still can't get over it. Having the ability to browse through their extensive video library and find the content that's right for you.
From music to nature, you can even watch game plays and trailers of the favourite and latest movies!
It's definitely an app worth downloading and we won't be taking this from our phones any time soon.
This is a fantastic free VR game. You are the owner of a fast food van and you have to make sure you stay in business by taking orders and creating awesome burgers for your clients! Make sure you make a great combination of the variety of ingredients you have in front of you to create the perfect burger!
