Review: This is another virtual cinema all on your own. While they are all a good experience it is not easy cramming popcorn into your mouth with a VR headset one. Add to that the crunching and chewing make the headset move. But human errors put aside let’s get back to the app.

From the moment you load the app it asks if you would like to pay for the PRO version to support development (We will review this Pro App separately as this is a different downloadable app). Saying no and carrying on with the free app leads you to a Matrix-style choice. Press the red button and you are presented with a live camera feed which is a little odd and pointless.

Pressing the blue button you will suddenly wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. ..oh, hang on. That was the Matrix again. Pressing the blue button you are presented with video playback of the latest videos you have recorded or downloaded in a split-screen style. This is not displayed in the normal empty cinema style, but just like a video which makes it all a little pointless. But the good news is if that downloaded movie is in 3D you are laughing because this app will display it perfectly. OK, so it’s not as good as many other VR theatre apps, but it does have its uses.
