We have arrived! The new Homido Center, renamed for the occasion “VR Center“, is available.
The first public phase
iOS: This version can be downloaded directly by clicking on the App-Box below.
A news feed featuring the latest content for your virtual reality headset; this content can be a VR game, an experience, a 360 video or an article again. The Live Feed will be updated at least once a week, but can be updated on a daily basis depending on the news and content.
TOP 20 and the user vote
The VR Center Top 20 will be reviewed every week based on your votes; a ranking of applications and videos will be presented as a TOP 20 illustrated with icons indicating whether the content is up, down or stable compared to last week. The purpose of this vote is to help us and you find the best content in virtual reality. Unlike the Google Play and App Store notes, the votes within the app allow you to skip reviews of the users who accidentally stumble onto a VR application and reference it negatively as a result of misunderstanding. Developers and users will thus have a true idea of the popularity of their experiences.
Apps and Videos categories
All the experiences offered in the VR Center are filed by category. The catalog will of course be extended during the beta phase and a premium set of the most popular content is also planned.
Are you a developer? Do not hesitate to submit your application to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
My Apps (Android)
Indicated by the small icons at the top right of the application, the “my Apps” section allows you to find and launch all the VR Center applications already installed on your smartphone. It’s a simple and effective way to find all its contents in the same place.
This function is available for Android smartphones only.
Located in the side menu, it allows to find all the experiences in the live feed as well as in the categories. Each application or a video card gives you the possibility to mark the content to find it later in this section, at any time.
By dragging an application card to the left, you can access this card or delete it from the Bookmarks page.
Other features of the VR Center
Dynamic search: You can start a dynamic search at any time by typing in the first three characters of the content you are looking for. The results will be displayed instantly in the form of cards, giving you access to the experiences.
Facebook Connect: To ensure that votes are counted and that no votes are doubled, the VR Center uses Facebook’s unique authentication. Only the email address is required for the sole purpose of identifying the user, no other information from your Facebook account is used.
Sharing through the VR Center (coming soon): It allows us to notify an application or a 360 video to be added in the VR Center. This function is very simple to use: press the Share button and share through the VR Center. After testing or viewing, we may add the proposed content.
Expert mode (available soon): A space reserved for those who are familiar with more complex applications, technical articles and exclusive tutorials.
