A movie theater in your pocket. Go Show is a virtual theater that lets you view 2D and 3D movies with your smart phone and a HMD (head mounted display) like the one at Durovis.com (also compatible with hmd vrase.com)

**WARNING** you do have to have to have some kind of head mounted display to view movies. I have an "open dive" ( see link below) and I also made my own for a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 out of black foam core and lenses from the Oculus Rift. You can buy your own lenses from the link below.

**NOTE TO Galaxy Note 3 and S4 owners** THIS Should be fixed.. If you still have problems email me.
This is a temporary work around.

Blog! yeay! Ok if you have a feature request or a bug this is now the best place to see the latest.. MUCH better than a low rating on the Play store I would say.

For 3d to work you have to have movies in the .mp4 format as side by side.
-Some mp4 don't work on some phones so test a clip before rendering an entire movie to side by side.

The idea of mobile virtual reality or MVR is moving fast. So many people already have the expensive part of the virtual reality head set in there purse or pocket. The on-board accelerometer is perfect for mobile VR, virtual reality because it senses the orientation of the smartphone then translates that orientation to the virtual world, the camera in the 3 dimensional virtual reality then mimics the real world as the wearer turns his or her head. Smartphone virtual reality is going to become more and more realistic as the pixel displays get more dense and the 3d chips that reproduce the virtual reality get faster. We havn't even scratched the surface of what mobile virtual reality will be with the hardware that is already on the shelves. For instance the power that was in the Play station 2 video game console was weak compared to today's smartphones.

    The app has come a long way since it's very first version last year. Latest compilation greatly decreased drift. The experience is very uniqe, and watching movies is very enjoyable!

    Used this on a long flight to watch "life of pi" and "piranha 3d". Very cool experience. The sight controlled buttons are a great addition. I would love to see: A: Larger screen options that the HUD controls stay in front of 2: different theaters. Maybe theme theaters: futuristic for SciFi, spooky house for horror, drive-in? 9er: Netflix or YouTube on screen. Banana: advanced options for the

    I'm using an S3 and no matter how much I try to Orient it it always drifts to the right. Not sure what the lock button does either. Seems to do nothing for me. I thought it would lock your position or something so it wouldn't drift anymore, but it definitely didn't do that. Other than that the app is pretty great though. Still needs a lot of work, but I think once it gets working without the drift

    This app is so freaking cool!! Ive shown a few people at work who were shocked that strapping a phone to your face could transport you to a movie theater. The only things I would like to see is the ability to stream video from like YouTube or Netflix and a bigger iMax style theater. The hands free controls are an excellent touch.

    Would be even better if you could select video's in the theater view, so you can leave you HMD on.

    This is a really good app for VR users but there are two things that need fixing on the nexus 5. "drift" and the navigation buttons need to disappear.
