If you want to use phone apps that aren't built for VR, Samsung Phonecast allows you to take advantage of that virtual screen real-estate.
One of the drawbacks of the Gear VR is that not all apps are built to be immersive. But that doesn't mean you can't watch your favorite videos on a gigantic virtual screen. Samsung Phonecast VR places you in a picnic with a view of a 200 inch screen that can play videos from popular services such as YouTube, Sling TV, and more.
The viewing experience is very similar to using the Netflix app on the Gear VR and is a great way to feel like you're in a cinema while you're in a much smaller space. Here are some of the best apps to use with Samsung Phonecast right now.
