    Tried this with the Entertainment Weekly self esteem cover, but could not watch the video because it kept cutting out unless it was aimed PERFECTLY at the cover. Perhaps AR it's not the best way to present a video? I lack the surgeon-steady hands required for this to work properly, so I did not get to watch the Steven Universe self esteem video; which did little to improve my self esteem.
  • All that bother to watch a bad cartoon commercial?

    All of my vr experiences I downloaded are now gone. I am thinking about deleting the app because it is now just a waste of my storage. Please try to fix this I used to love this app and now I probably couldn’t care less.

    Just tried to use the app on the cover of Entertainment Weekly and it did not work at all. Such a disappointment. The Rock cover worked perfectly.

    Liked this app the first time I tried it. Now, it starts up, shows me a bunch of magazine covers, says the point camera at trigger image THEN SHUTS DOWN!

    Previous update broke the app on iPad Pro. Current upgrade broke it on my new iPhone. App support page has no “support” link, just an advertising page for life vr. I give up, tired of trying to use an app that does not even begin to work properly. I am uninstalling it from all my devices.
  • Junk
