We continue our dive into iPhone Virtual Reality with the best applications on the market. As iPhone Virtual Reality Applications grow more and more popular, we have many apps on offer, but only some of them are the best and cool enough to impress you and your friends.
The first rule is that the application has to be fun. You will not use it for very long, if it’s boring. This is one of the major problems right now with iPhone Virtual Reality Application. You will download them, use them once and then forget that they exist. Until you delete them. We want to avoid that. We want to present only the very best applications, that hopefully you will use for many days, weeks and months to come.
The second rule is that the application has to impress you. Virtual Reality is a new technology (mostly), so we have to be impressed. And we have to impress our friends. And our family.
So, strap in as we list the best iPhone Virtual Reality Applications in the world!
Jaunt VR – iPhone Virtual Reality Applications
Consider this as the YouTube of Virtual Reality Videos. You get a great interface, which is easy to use and navigate in the Virtual Reality World, and thousands upon thousand of videos that are growing everyday, ranging from documentaries, entire movies, video game clips and even music videos. The application even offers an entire section on Virtual Reality Tourism, where you can visit places like Machu Picchu from your living room.
This is an excellent example of 360 degrees videos, where you don’t have to look in one direction. Instead, you are your own director, and you look and “film” whatever you want. Now, for the best part of this application…
Jaunt is completely free to use and fully compatible with iPhone Virtual Reality, meaning you don’t have to pay a cent. You can download it by clicking the name of the application above.
YouTube – iPhone Virtual Reality Applications
Jaunt is maybe the YouTube of Virtual Reality Videos, but YouTube is still the king. The latest version of the application for iPhone and iPad has a complete support for Virtual Reality, and all you have to do is to write “360 videos” and you are all set. There are many videos uploaded, but a short disclaimer – not all of them are awesome. Usually, the best practice is to watch the videos with the highest number of views, as they are probably the best ones.
YouTube does not have a lot of 360 degrees videos, but people are adding new ones each day. Also, this application is already on your phone, so you don’t have to download it. Most phones come with YouTube installed, but if you don’t have it, you can download it by clicking the name of the application above.
Google Cardboard – iPhone Virtual Reality Applications
Not surprisingly, one of the best iPhone Virtual Reality Applications comes directly from Google. The application is called Google Cardboard, and offers several smaller applications within, all of which are perfectly crafted to introduce you to the Virtual Reality World. As per Google:
- Explorer: Explore exciting environments.
- Exhibit: View 3D objects from a museum collection.
- Urban Hike: Take a hike through iconic cities around the world.
- Kaleidoscope: Enjoy a fun stereoscopic take on the old classic.
- Arctic Journey: Fly alongside Arctic terns, create your own flower garden, relax under the northern lights and more.
The application is completely free and we strongly recommend that you try it out – you will be impressed!

Sisters: A Virtual Reality Ghost Story – iPhone Virtual Reality Applications
You are probably starting to wonder – this is cool and all, but what if I want to play something in Virtual Reality?
Virtual Reality Games are the next big thing, as we can witness from the newly introduced Playstation VR. Still, as this cost over 400 dollars, we are lucky to try out a few games for free on our iPhones. Our phones are perfectly capable of mobile gaming and virtual reality, so you don’t have to pay for a new console.
The first suggested game is shortly called Sisters, one of the first Virtual Reality Horror Games. You venture alone to the nightmarish cabin of notorious child killer Rustin Parr; the site of the most horrific and unspeakable events from throughout Burkittsville’s cursed history. Be careful where you look, because something doesn’t want you here. Experience a true horror experience made for mobile virtual reality. Works perfectly with newer iPhone models and any Virtual Reality Goggles, as well as with Android phones.
If you want the true experience, place some headphones and immerse yourself in the world. You can download it by clicking the name of the application above.
Zombie Shooter VR – iPhone Virtual Reality Applications
For a more action-packed experience, we suggest Zombie Shooter VR. Your character has to get out from never-ending labyrinths of post-apocalyptic subway, struggle with hordes of blood-thirsty zombies and mutants. The game requires newer iPhone (from iPhone 6 and up), and it is completely free to download and play. However, there are some optional payments while you use it.
You aim to use your Virtual Reality Headset, but we have to warn you that this game might cause you nausea and other side effects, so play with caution.
You can download it by clicking the name of the application above, and although it is free, there is some additional content to download.
