User's Reivew

5 ★ It is a very vivid design guidelines with the best VR experience I had so far. Smooth, immersive and not dizzy at all. Although got two questions: 1 Why I feel that the text on different depth are of Tue same size? 2 I liked the very smooth experience, however, for some games like roller coasters, isn't the ups and downs the point of the game? I guess for that kind of game, the discomfort is un avoidable?by Weiwei Zhang on August 29, 2015
5 ★ I love this app so much I've been trying to recreate some of the design elements like the beautifully animated crosshair. I've tried to recreate it for the past couple days with no success, so I hope they open source this app one day. They also implement a brilliant way to move around the world while minimizing/eliminating motion sickness. Thank you Google! I still love staring down at that Ki Song on June 28, 2015
4 ★ Gives a nice overlook at the cool features and experiences that VR can give and also gives interactive tips for designers. It may be laggy on older phones (Galaxy S3), but that is not unexpected. The only issue I had apart from the lag was the black text on black background when choosing between foundation modes in the beginning. 5 stars if fixed. Keep making more, Google!by Mark Davidoff on August 24, 2016
4 ★ Its kinda laggy when i try to look up and down . :/ does it meant to do that? If not what can i do to reduce the laggy-ness of the app? Please leave a reply :) . its a cool app though everyone with a cardboard vr should use this app ! Its cool :)by Im iPinoys on February 04, 2016
3 ★ It was promising but I think it was a little late. If it came out in the 80s it might have caught some interest but today we aren't too impressed with it and want real holograms. Also Google really should have implemented controller use for this, not David on September 10, 2016
4 ★ Need delayed gaze based confirmation in menus for old cardboard. As registered touch in menu is otherwise difficult for those with old CB where magnets performance was lot of Darshan Gayake on June 05, 2015
1 ★ Big joke, why allow me to dl this then tell me to dl Cardboard only to tell me Im not compatible, even though I just upgraded to latest Google OS. Getting sick of Google crap. Time to find alternatives and say nye bye Google everything. Now seeing the allure of Richard Leece on December 26, 2016
2 ★ I'm using NOTE 2 and Allian Cardboard Viewer the app starts wonderfully but past the start button we get 2 menus 1. Foundation 2. Immersion but on selecting any one of the two options all the text written is illegibleby Sanchit Gulati on August 12, 2015
1 ★ I have a cardboard thing for this but my phone's not compatible with the official app. Please update this as soon as you could, I'd love to see how this works. *Update* I saw the website says you need android 4.0 or higher and I have 5.0 and yet I still can't get it. . - .by Kennith Simmons on April 20, 2016
1 ★ I can't download the cardboard I need because its not compatible with my LG Stylo 2 & so I downloaded this one & it's telling me to download the one that's not comparable with my decive yet the dream vission VR device says its compatible with all Androids. Yet I need to download the cardboard to configure it & I can't because it's not Deslie Goss on December 25, 2016

Questions & Answers

Q: What is an APK File?

A: Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same. An APK file is the file format used for installing software on the Android operating system.

Q: If I install an APK from this website, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: Why can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.
