For some reason, it is difficult to find the perfect VR headset for an iPhone and if you succeed in finding one then the next step involves finding the best free apps that you could initially use to test the effectiveness and quality of your VR headset. Android users have a much wider range of choice but with fresh content coming in every day iPhone users still have many apps to enjoy. So here is a compilation of all the free VR apps and 360-degree video content sources that you can use with your iPhone-
1. Google StreetView
Want to take a walk on the streets of different cities by just sitting at the comfort of your home? Anything is possible with the Google Streetview where both the Google Map and Virtual reality features come together to give you one of the most exotic experiences.
You can even use this app to create your own photo spheres and view them as 360-degree videos. This app would effectively take you to different places and can be the cheapest way to teleport, LOL. This app is completely free making it even more compelling to try out!
The first thing I do after getting a VR headset is watching all my favorite YouTube Videos in VR. It definitely gives a much better experience and if the VR headset is of a good quality then you are definitely going to watch videos in VR more often. YouTube has now enabled the Cardboard option in almost all videos and hence you can watch most of them in VR.
The experience is more like watching the video as if you are sitting in a theater. It looks like the video is being projected on a far away screen and you are inside a movie theater watching the video. It is free and you can watch tons of videos including the 360-degree videos on VR.
3. VR Cities
One of the most beautiful experiences in VR can be the VR Cities App. This app brings to you the most beautiful cities in the world into your VR world and takes it to a whole new level of immersive experiences. From Millenium Park in Chicago to the River Walk in Chicago, this app can take to so many places within seconds through the VR headset.
The entire graphics in this app makes it look so real and not for once do you get the typical animated feeling which happens in the case of a few free VR apps. All the iPhone users must download this app and check out the different places VR Cities can take you.
4. Jurassic Virtual Reality(VR)
As the name suggests, this VR experience will take you on a tour of Jurassic Park where you would see dinosaurs and different species of them. It is a bit scary and you can term it as a horror experience but it is amazing to just go around and see all huge creatures around and feel the adrenaline rush.
The game has a very immersive experience and the graphics make it look very real. If you want a free app with a hint of adventure then the Jurassic Virtual Reality app is a must!
5. Roller Coaster VR
This is a roller coaster experience where just a part of it is free so that you can try it out and see if you further want to purchase the full game. The free experience is fun as you get to be on a roller coaster and feel all the thrill and if you have a fear of heights then god save your soul, LOL.
It is an amazing experience and you should try it as it is going to be one of the most fun VR experiences ever. This app has been famous for its realistic graphics and great VR roller coaster experience so go ahead and try the app. If possible let us know if you liked it in the comment section below.
6. SkyDive 360
I confess that I’m way too scared of heights and this might be the only time I might actually Skydive and that is in VR. If you have the same problem then here you have the skydive 360 and experience all your fears in the VR world. It is an amazing experience and if you want to try Skydiving in real life then you might as well try it in the VR world.
The world of Virtual Reality opens up the possibility of things that I may never be able to do in real life. It surely is an amazing experience and you should try it with your VR headsets if you haven’t yet tried it!
7. Discovery VR
You can explore the Discovery themed experiences from this app and as the name suggests the app has a lot of exotic, informative and new experiences to offer. You will see different stories being portrayed in the VR world and for someone who is curious, this app would be the perfect way to spend some time in VR.
Discovery keeps its essence of travel, exploration, and information in the app and the blend of the three features helps you really get into the world where the app takes you. With a mix of perfect content and immersive graphics, this is another free app which you should try.
This app focuses mainly on VR cinema and is one of the best apps to download 360-degree videos and content to watch it offline on a VR headset. The quality of videos on this app is excellent and you should check it out without fail. It is possibly one of the best VR movie apps which are free and provides high-quality content.
You have many experiences available in the app which you can view on your VR headsets. Check out VRSE and let me know your opinion in the comment section below!
9. Virtual Reality Moon
This VR experience gives you the entire feel that you are walking on the moon and how the world would look up there! Well, most of us would not make it on a trip to moon so why not experience it in VR right on earth where we feel safe.
This VR experience is beautiful as you walk along the trails on the moon and see how it feels to actually be there and how the Earth looks from the Moon. This first person VR experience is amazing and free so go ahead and download it to get a free trip to the Moon.
10. Google Spotlight Stories
This app contains movies from famous film makers which are in 360 degree and the immersive nature of these videos are worth dying for. If you have an iPhone and a VR headset then this app should be downloaded as soon as you can in order to experience an immersive movie in 360 degree format!
