15 best Gear VR apps to make your VR experience better!

Samsung’s Gear VR is in a bit of an awkward place. It sites between the simpler offerings of Google Daydream and Google Cardboard, but not quite the super ridiculous experience of the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Still, it’s an excellent device for beginners to the VR experience. Most apps are available in the Oculus Store rather than Google Play. In addition, all of these apps work in the 3D, virtual reality space. The only bad news is that most experiences are fairly basic, and mostly include streaming video content, educational experiences, and some basic tools like web browsing. It’s a growing medium, but there are some good things available now. Here are the best Samsung Gear VR apps!

Facebook 360 is kind of an obvious choice. It’s almost the entire Facebook experience in virtual reality. The app primarily focuses on photo and video content. However, you can view your news feed, like status updates, and the usual Facebook stuff. This is actually a pretty decent app for the Facebook video platform. It boasts support for game streamers, both 360-degree and 2D video content, and 360-degree photo content as well. It definitely doesn’t work or feel like your mobile Facebook app or the Facebook website, but that’s okay because this still feels pretty good to use. Facebook 360 is, of course, completely free to use, but you may see some advertising.
