We came across JauntVR by accident whilst scrolling through the Play Store looking at different VR Apps. I have to say that we were pleasantly surprised!
So, we installed this App and loaded it up, slotted the phone into the Google Cardboard VR Headset and were taken on many different roads. JauntVR is Cinematic Virtual Reality experience.
Firstly, the navigation is quite intuitive and like any good VR App is controlled purely by sight. Although the little menu button that hung around became quite annoying during the short films.
We started with a Pearl Harbour experience which was really good and a mix of old footage and new giving us a great insight into one small piece of that disaster.
We then moved on immediately to the short film Longing for Wilderness which was really really good. It started in a funny way, in a gutter of a street in a city but finished with the most wonderful Vista imaginable. The only problem with this is it was not long enough.
From this point, we thought it would be a great idea to check out the Invisible Virtual Reality Series. This was really good, you have a series of short films that follow a death of a rich and powerful man and the wash-up from that. But there is a twist that we will not get into here, it is best for you to watch the series.
JauntVR has a large selection of short films, there is something for everyone! In fact, once I finish writing this I think I will delve back into the App for a bit more fun.
I can choose from Historical Films, Adventure, Horror, Science Fiction and Documentary to name a few genres. This is an App along with Within that is at the top of the tree for VR Apps right now.
Thanks JauntVR, it is appreciated!
