    Hello :D

    I have never tried VR headsets or VR in general. I just ordered this.

    Wanted to know what apps I could use and what you guys think of VR in general.

    Just list of apps, games, etc to try out.

    (on a side note, I am looking for a "moga" like controller for my Huawei P9, any suggestions?)

    Theres a few movie players, but they don't connect to Netflix or Hulu. They just stream MP4 files or videos from URL. Also, you can watch any YouTube video on cardboard. It will turn a non-360 video into a theater like environment.

    How does that work? Is it specific videos only or all videos on youtube work that way?

    360 videos will appear full screen on VR.

    Regular Videos will show up as a virtual movie theater like environment.
