However what for those who needed to examine your Twitter feed or see what number of new likes that Instagram photograph of hitting your exercise aim in your Apple Watch received whereas avoiding meatspace? Haven’t any worry people, as a result of with a brand new app referred to as Swerve you’ll do this with out eradicating your Android VR system. The app places Twitter right into a 3D area and as VR Focus notes, you possibly can peruse searches, mentions and hashtags too — apparently all in a cloud-crammed skybox. Good.
The free app solely handles the microblogging service for now, however Fb’s photograph community is coming “quickly.” Hopefully that is prepared for Swerve’s launch someday later this month (you’ll be able to join early entry proper now) and simply in time for peak crossfit photograph season. It solely helps the likes of Google Cardboard for now, however hopefully Gear VR help’s being thought-about as properly.
