Description: Tired from being caged inside? Virtual Vacations is the answer. Virtual Vacations is an experience that brings you to your most desirable holiday locations in the blink of an eye. Lie down in the sand of the most realistic VR beach till date. Hear and see the seagulls fly by, watch the dolphins play, or play around with some beachballs. You will find inner piece here within seconds. It is the ultimate relaxation for home use. A showcase of excellence.

Review: I’m not really sure what the developer was going for with ‘Virtual Vacations’, but I think it was probably not achieved. It seems to be a relaxation app of sorts, that isn’t very relaxing. There is a nice beach scene to enjoy, but nothing to relax with. The sound effects are basic, the animations are crappy and the setting is so basic you can’t help but feel left alone and abandoned, then there is a shark feeding scene which is not relaxing at all and it not even good to look at! I just have to wonder why on earth I am paying £10.99 for a handful of scenes none of which you could really call relaxing! Until this app work out what it wants to be I don’t think I will be recommending it any time soon.
