By popular request it is now finally available in Smart2VR. You can now see your progress, edits and changes made to your VR app real-time without the need to publish your app first! Hence, the so called emulator enables you to personalize your VR app without that it is already available in the stores for download.

Northpoint feature

It is now possible to indicate the north direction into your VR content with the Hotspot Designer. When you open the VR content in the VR app the image automatically rotates to the north direction by using the compass in your smartphone.

This new feature is very suitable for on-site viewing. For example: You are on a location looking at existing buildings (First image). Then you watch how these buildings are looking in the future using Virtual Reality (second image). By using the northpoint in your VR image, this image will be aligned with the north in reality. Result: you do not need to turn when you are putting on and off the VR headset/cardboard to see the VR image on the correct location.

Release/block feature

Very suitable on events with bad wifi connection and to launch your VR content on a particular point of time.
How? Upload your VR content on forehand to the CMS and ‘block’ it. Promote your VR content and let people already download it in the VR app. Now the VR content is stored in the cache of the smartphone but it cannot be viewed. ‘Release’ your VR content in the CMS during an event or on in a particular timeframe. Now everybody that has downloaded the VR content can watch it. Offline without (bad) wifi connection and without waiting because of possible long download time.
