Video 360 is today's myAppFree Deal

Video 360 is a 3D virtual reality media player that is available in both the Windows Phone and Windows 10 Store. The app supports Virtual Reality headsets such as Oculus Rift, Google Cardboard, Microsoft's VR Kit and others. Even without a headset, these 360-degree videos can be kinda cool.

The app typically runs $1.99 but over the next twenty-four hours you can pick up Video 360 free courtesy of the myAppFree Deal. It is a universal app, so when you install the Windows Phone version of Video 360, you get access to the Windows version as well.

There's definitely a coolness factor with Video 360 and even if you don't have a set of Virtual Reality Headsets, the 360 video playback is, dare I say, en Fuego.

The interface with Video 360 is simple with your viewer controls lining the bottom of the screen and your headset options at the top center. The app has integration with Tubecast and if you don't have any 360 videos handy, there are plenty 360 videos available through Tubecast.

The videos offer you a 360-degree angle of view and as you move your Windows Phone around, your point of view shifts. For example, a video can place you in the passenger seat of a race car and as you move your phone around, you can shift your view from out the front windscreen to the side window to behind you. You can even look down at the floorboard of the car.

The camera angle can be moved with your device sensors, by touch, by your keyboard, by mouse or your Xbox gamepad. The Tubecast integration is simple. Search for videos using keywords such as "Video 360" and choose the 360-degree option for playback quality when the video starts..

Again, Video 360 normally runs $1.99 but through the myAppFree promotion you can pick it up free over the next twenty-four hours. It comes across as a fun app to have on your Windows Phone and even a Windows 10 tablet. If you have tried Video 360, let us know what you think of things in the comments below.

  • Sad that youtube on android can easily play 360 video :/
  • No it doesnt. Not on all android. Tried it on Vodafone Smart Ultra 6, it only works it you drag it with your finger. On a Lenovo something, a recente € 200 + phone (Mediatek Octacore, 2 gb ram), it doesnt even show on 3D, it does that stupid side by side thing. And on another android I've tested it also doesnt work. Guess what? Works perfectly on my L620 and 640! Go figure.  
  • It's The trial
  • It isn't.
  • Its the FULL Version, you misread. Tap the ... > shop. It then confirms full version purchased. This is a cool app, if you search with Tubecast for "360 videos", pick one to play then tap the 360 icon it works. Only problem I have to hold the phone about 2 feet away to focus I've got excellent vision too. Can only imagine how great VR is gonna be over the next 5 years!!
  • trial?¬_¬*
  • It is the trial. It is not the paid version. >_
  • Yup, had it while ago, thought they removed 20 previews with this promotion which didn't happen. It's stays trial.
  • Did you uninstall and install again? Had to do it on my mom's phone for that to say Purchased.
  • It's not trial, there is the full "premium" version in the store.
  • For those saying it is the trial:  Hit the elipses button in the bottom right, then click 'Shop'.  You will see here that is says 'Premium: Unlimited Videos - Purchased' despite the 20 video limit warning when you first open the app.
  • I didn't even get a warning. It was already unlimited. I'm not sure what people are going on about.
  • Full version, even thou I already paid for it I recommend it to my friends using WP.
  • Cool
  • I've been waiting for this app to come to MyAppFree, like to WOW my friends showing how well it works on such a low specs phone (Lumia 620). But now that the app is free, I thought that if we don't contribute to these developers (I already bought Tubecast) then they'll eventually start thinking about leaving WP, so I went ahead and bought it anyway a few minutes ago. Hope many of you also think like this, instead of complaining and winning here every time a news appears about another app or developer that leaves Windows for the lack of support and income.
