10 Top Virtual Reality Apps

Posted August 8, 2016 By  Cynthia Harvey

Clearly, virtual realty apps are on the rise -- virtual reality (VR) is finally becoming a reality. According to Deloitte, the VR industry is likely to have its first billion-dollar year in 2016. The bulk of that revenue—$700 million—is likely to come from sales of hardware like Facebook's Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Samsung Gear VR.

However, it's worth noting that you don't need expensive hardware in order to enjoy VR content. If you're the DIY-type, you can use the Google Cardboard VR app and about $5-$10 worth of supplies from a local hardware store to turn any iOS or Android smartphone into a VR viewer. Or you can spend as little as $15 to buy a pre-made Google Cardboard device.

For now, Deloitte believes that most of the VR content sold will be games, although movies, entertainment and work-related VR apps will become more important in years to come.

On this list, we're highlighting 10 of the best VR apps that you can get and use today. It includes entertainment, news, games and education apps that are worth checking out whether you have a VR device or just a smartphone.
