Review: Holoswitch is one of those apps you don’t know you need until you start to use it. It basically allows you to use your phone in VR. You can read and send messages, answer phone calls and also read any notifications you have. While it doesn’t auto-start which is a shame it is a program that is easy to use. At first, I thought it was an OK idea and now I can hardly use VR without it running, this is especially true with bigger, longer VR games. While I do wish it was free I get that ongoing development and support costs money, so I am happy to pay it. The only thing that surprises me more is that Oculus hasn’t released their own version of this already.
