Before moving towards the Google Cardboard apps, let’s first see what actually a Google Cardboard is so that all the readers be on the same page (in case if few don’t know exactly). In simple words Google Cardboard is a small box made of cardboard, fits on your head (In front of eyes) and you put your smartphone in it to experience Virtual Reality. Yes it doesn’t only made of cardboard and includes very few other small parts (lenses & small magnets). However you can make it yourself or can just buy from the internet for these aren’t any expensive.
Anyhow, no matter whether you make your own or buy one, you can’t have the best VR experience without a VR app. So let’s dive in the list of Dream like Google Cardboard Android apps.
