Imperfect VR-themed app for phones still amuses.

The aim of this photo app seems to be to make a much simpler form of VR accessible to all, but its uses and quality are a bit limited. Putting together a 360-degree photo with Sprayscape is very easy to do. The problem is that there aren't a lot of times when that's really worth the effort. Even when one of those times comes along, the resulting photo looks stitched together, often with warped features. As a result, it's an app that kids might love for its unique qualities, but parents likely will abandon it after a few uses. Ultimately, it's a one-trick pony app whose trick really isn't all that impressive.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
