It started a new type of VR headset, commonly called smartphone VR headset. It allows you to experience VR by interesting your smartphone and using it as a display. In this article, we will recommend the 4 best VR apps for iOS and Android devices.

Google Earth

Many kids dream of being astronauts when they grow up. If you were one of such kids, now you can live your dream in VR thanks to the Google Earth VR app. It allows you to explore the surface of Earth and the Moon as if you were an astronaut flying through space in a rocket. In case you flew through every square meter of Earth and the Moon, you can simply stop and start gazing at the space itself. It’s full of sparkling stars that create an impression of the endless universe that we inhabit. We recommend this app to every VR beginner who has just purchased their smartphone VR headset and can’t wait to experience VR for the first time.
