Review: Those of use wanting Google Earth on the Oculus Go have been left waiting and wanting presumably forever. But suddenly along comes Wander to fill that gap and it does it very well. With great use of the Oculus Go controller and full access to Google Streetview, this is an app that can take you anywhere you want and I was happy to spend several hours inside it. It does have to be said Google Streetview VR has indeed been done before, but never this well, never this well thought out and easy to use. While I would have liked some background music or at least the ability to play my own I still enjoyed this app immensely. If you have ever wondered what the point in 360 images was, this app showcases them and all in 72Hz glory.
