    "I found this particular solution somewhat useful for the problem or challenge identified. However, I felt that the author could have provided much more in terms of product specifications, compatibility, and user reviews that would clearly identify this product as the best in class for this particular category."

    "Final Kick is free but a bit shallow, not that that's a bad thing really and it looks good. It's worth trying if you are already playing around with Cardboard and you need something to kick around a bit and get the VR experience. "

    "I have a cheap cardboard VR headset for my Android phone, so I was looking for some fun apps and games to use with it. There's this cool-looking Star Wars VR app that I grabbed to try out. However, it's mostly a news and media app, which is something many other sites can provide. It also has a very small portion of the app that even allows VR, which makes it a bit clumsy-feeling, having to go from normal to VR usage and back again."

    "Virtual reality is a great experience that everyone should at least experience once in their lifetime. Though there are many different VR games, what makes this game stand out is that you learn things while you are gaming. "

    "I just love Google's Arts and Culture VR app. I am someone who has struggled to understand useful applications for VR, but I think google has perfectly harnessed this new technology with their art app. I love having immediate exposure to such beauty. Highly recommend!"

    "Cardboard VR is a fantastic and cheap entry into the VR realm, but it can be difficult to decide what Apps to try out. One of my favorites is Titans of Space, which takes you on a fantastically breathtaking tour of the Solar System and teaches you along the way."

    "I thought Chair in a Room was a decent VR app for android. It's not territory that's unexplored, especially with the massive development of VR apps that we're witnessing right now, but it's solid in it's own regard. I've seen worse."

    "Kind of boring, really and there's just not enough here to keep my interest. It's very repetitive and while it looks pretty good, there's little in the way of graphic violence, so if that's your thing I would definitely pass. "
