There is no doubt that they are the leaders in their own space. However, their high cost and technical complexities made them out of reach for a majority of customers. But if you want to experience the world of virtual reality, there are no dearth of amazing free VR apps for Android and iOS that you can use on your smartphone. Let’s have a look at the top 5 apps in this segment.
- Zombie Shooter VR (Android & iOS)
Zombie Shooter VR is a great Android & iOS game that performs exceptionally well in its category – you need to kill zombies. Initially, it was a paid app for users. However, at a later stage, game developers made it free in order to outperform its competitors.
The controls of this game are truly second to none and keep the players engaged. All you need to do is to just find a zombie and kill. It is that simple.
- Google Cardboard (Android & iOS)
It is one of the initial mobile apps in VR landscape and still ranks high in the category of free VR apps. The foremost objective behind the launch of this app was to let users explore the world of VR and see what possibilities it offers to its users.
Google Cardboard VR comes for free and contains hundreds of videos and in-app features such as Google Maps integration, through which you can explore the world via 360-degree videos.
