VR Stories

☀☀ USA Today’s VR Stories needs improvement. Its interface is difficult to navigate. Users can’t maneuver through the app while the phone is in the virtual reality goggles, which made using it a hassle. It falls short in its goal of integrating users into news stories. Some of the “videos” on the app were not videos at all, but lower quality 360 pictures. Most of the app’s videos left something to be desired in overall experience. The app has potential for immersing users into stories but has not yet reached the quality of other VR apps out there. — Carly Henry
