Review: In the world of VR 360° videos and photos are everywhere and can easily transport us to anywhere in the world, or at amazing events. This app brings together a collection of amazing 360° photos as well as the ability to look at you own. The good news is you don’t need an expensive 360° camera to make one, you can use a normal camera and create joined sections to look at.

As you start off your categories are…

Facebook: A collection of the most liked 360° images from around Facebook
Weekly Destinations: Which is an ever changing collection of locations and tours to visit
My Favourites: Seen a 360° photo you liked? Save it for instant viewing right here
Explore The World: This allows you to view 360° photos via country category
3D Art: This is a great little collection of amazing 3-dimentional art all done in a digital medium
Nature: A look at amazing animals and places from around the world
My Photos: That is where you can view your own

It would be impossible to know just how many 360° photos there are available to view on this app, but it must be thousands. You can easily get lost not only in the rabbit warren of category options and also within some of the amazing photo. This is a great app to get away from it all and see the world, it could also be a great educational tool, for kids of all ages to get a chance to go around the world. The future revolves around interactive pictures like this and a good future it looks.
