Last year Google unveiled their new virtual reality headset and application that took the form of Google Cardboard, and more recently the application has been updated to accommodate larger screen sizes ranging up to 6 inches in size.
At the Google I/O developer conference this week Google has announced the launch of its Google Cardboard iOS application that allows those with Apple devices to now enjoy the virtual reality experience on offer from Google.
The Cardboard iOS application is now available to download from the Apple iTunes App Store in the US and includes all the same applications, as well as the QR pairing technology. Making sure that the virtual reality software is optimised specifically for the mobile hardware that you own.
Darrell Etherington from the Tech Crunch website has already tested out the Google Cardboard iOS app and reports:
“Using the app with the iPhone 6 Plus reveals a very smooth experience; in fact, it’s the best experience I’ve had yet with Cardboard’s VR visuals on any device, including the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6. Whether it’s the screen resolution, device capabilities or fit with the new headset, something is making for a finely tuned relationship between the iPhone and the Cardboard kit.”
