The 360Cities panorama viewing app for Android has a motion-sensitive panorama viewer that allows you to move around in the interactive panoramas just by moving your Android device. The app supports VR viewing on Google Cardboard.

And there are more features you will find useful too:

– View the featured, most popular, most recent and nearest panoramas to your current location.

Comment on panoramas and read what others said about them.

– Save all your favorite panoramas in your account, so you can easily find your desired pano later on (ideal if you plan to travel somewhere).

– Find panoramas anywhere in the 360Cities World Map: take a virtual tour of pretty places and travel from city to city with ease.

– Use the search functionality for finding those panoramas you are looking for.

 Thanks to  Ackee who did a great job developing the app for us.

Panoramas on 360cities.net (the website) can now be seen in virtual reality (VR) on Google Cardboard, with support for other hardware headsets coming soon.

 

Here’s what you need to do in order to partake in the VR experience on 360cities.net:

  • Buy the Cardboard from Google or DIY
  • Get your Android or iPhone ready
  • Tap on the image – it will then go “fullscreen” and you’ll have 2 icons in top right corner – one is for gyro and one is for VR (eye)
  • Tap on the VR icon and activate the Gyro

 

  • The screen will be divided in two with the same image displayed side by side
