Gear VR is one of the best VR headsets that we have for Android phones apart from the Daydream VR and it ranks the #1 Virtual Reality headsets for smartphones(Daydream might need to upgrade to take its #1 Position). Although there are plenty of apps that you could use with the Gear VR, there are a few apps which include adult content sites that are not available on the Google Play Store or the Oculus Store.
In order to have the accessibility to such apps, you would need an app like sideload VR that would help you use any third party apps with the Gear VR.
What is Sideloading an app?
Sideloading is a term that is used when an app is usually not available on the Google Play Store. It can be apps that do not follow the guidelines of the play store or it could be an app that is still being tested before its final release on the PlayStore.
Sideloading involves the download of an application package(APK) of an app and since it is not on the Play Store, it can be installed from any source on the internet. You can always sideload an app from third parties and if you are reading this content then most probably it is a VR app which is not available on the play store.
Sideloading does involve a risk of downloading the app from unknown sources so you should be aware that there can be some malicious software getting downloaded while you install an app. The main reason many people use sideloading is that not all apps are supported by the Google Play Store like adult apps.
Why is sideloading done?
There can be a few reasons that you might want to know to understand why sideloading is preferred by a few users. Usually, when an app is yet to be released officially on the Google Play Store and is still in the beta version, people sideload the app and use it.
This is what we did for Pokemon Go when it was initially out and people were all over it. Sideloading can also be done if you are building an app and trying to test it out before you release the final version. In all these cases you would find that sideloading an app is generally the method people go for.
In Gear VR, you can sideload apps that are usually not on Google Play Store or on the Oculus Store like adult apps. To install these apps you need to go for sideloading and it is pretty easy to use these apps once you install the software known as Sideload VR.

If you want to download a third party app then all you need to do is first download Sideload VR. Once you download this app, you need to go to your phone settings and enable downloads from third party sources which basically means that you are okay with downloading apps from other sources on the internet(they can be malicious so be aware of what software you are downloading).
Once you do this, you can now download the third party apps and if it is adult content then you can read more about how to view adult content on Gear VR, how to hide it and the different apps that are available in Virtual Reality.
