    Received the EVO VR device for Christmas and downloaded a couple apps: Samsung VR and Within.

    The process is to start the app and one of the VR presentations that came with the app, then insert the phone, in the cradle, into the device and viola, 3D. No joy!

    The sparse EVO instructions seem to indicate that before inserting the phone into the headset, you should see a split screen of the presentation and once inserted, the device merges the 2 screens and hence provides the 3D show. But, I do not see a split screen before insertion and therefore, no 3D.

    My questions are:

    1) Should I be seeing a split screen before insertion?

    2) Is there a setting on the phone that controls the split screen or is the app supposed to control that?

    3) If it is the app, can someone suggest a good app to use?

    Thanks for your help.

    1) Yes, your VR app should show split screen before insertion (ie each half of the display for each lens.

    2) Your VR headset should come with a calibration qr code. If it didnt (and many google cardboard VR headsets dont, then go onto this website (Search for EVO...I think its a rebranded version of BoboVR 3.

    VR Headset QR Codes –

    3) There are so many VR apps on Google Play. Some of my favs:

    Cmoar VR Cinema (awesome app for watching movies on the big screen, in all honesty its my main reason for buying a mobile VR headset)
    Titans of Space
    Cmoar Roller (great rollercoaster experience)
    GalaxyVR
    A Time in Space 2 VR
    InCell VR
    Insidious VR

    I got a cardboard for free from John Lewis. Doesn't work with my Moto 3 but does with the Mrs' HTC M9. Obviously doesn't compare with my HTC Vive yet it's not bad. My 3 year old (who ain't going near my Vive) loved the dinosaur experience. He was trying to kick the fish in the aquarium experience. I'll get around to uploading a video of him playing.

    I'll be checking out some of those suggestions, thanks @TheyCallMeTJ
