my biggest issues with mobile vr

mobile vr is awesome, but most, not all but most games have that horrible drift. Some games have calibration options. The cmour theater app is a great example of this. But even that doesn't last. eon reality apps, occupation vr, zombiestan don't have that awful drift. They seem to have figured out how to correct this issue. which most makes most mobile vr apps practically unplayable. my other big issue is right thumb stick compatibility. Being able to play vr games sitting down is very comfortable. 4 rooms, fibrums zombie shooter, halls of fear are great examples of right thumb stick controls. if there is drift, at least being able to control turning can help adjust orientation. vr is making huge strides, but when I try to introduce people to vr the mobile platforms they have to contantly turn their head which isnt a good way to demo vr.

What phone do you use? That can make a huge difference. I use an LG G3 and experience little to no drift related issues unless it's a particularly buggy app (experimental or beta). I've heard that, depending on the phone, moving or removing the magnet switch can help stop drift.

I've found a way to fix the drift issue. I had to calibrate the gyro on my phone.using the test screen built in my phone. Everything works great now. I can really enjoy mobile vr now. if anyone is having the same problem I can tell you how to fix it.
