Pixvana SPIN Play for iOS

Well after 4 years at Pixvana chasing after the dream of VR and headset based immersive storytelling, today marked a huge milestone–we shipped our first iOS release of SPIN Play. It turns out that the billion+ users of mobile phones and iPads are a super compelling audience for immersive storytelling, and while it wasn’t our initial target, it is the most exciting milestone in our team’s journey.

Pixvana SPIN Play can play any interactive video content authored by SPIN Studio: flat rectilinear videos, 180 or 360, and soon AR content as well. Our web-player is a embed-able short-url hosted full-player (available at http://www.spinxr.com), and we now have native iOS and Oculus app store versions for phones, ipad/iphone, and VR headsets)

You can get Pixvana SPIN Play for iOS now from the Apple App Store for iOS devices. iPad only release today but iPhone will be out shortly (we did a vertical layout for phones which is more comfortable in your hand given how big phones have gottent).

Here’s a default playlist of immersive stories running in Pixvana SPIN Play for iOS (iPad UI)

Ok so we are adding support to Pixvana SPIN Studio to share URLs more easily of what we call SPINs, playlists of content. Here’s our default SPIN that loads when you download our player app, SPIN Play, from various app stores (iOS App Store, Oculus, etc.):
