New version of iVRy (1.11) available. Use your phone as a SteamVR VR HMD for your PC.

What is iVRy?

iVRy is an app for your iOS or Android device that lets you use your device, with a compatible Google Cardboard-type VR headset, as a VR headset for SteamVR and Oculus Rift* PC VR titles. In conjunction with NoloVR, iVRy is able to provide full 6DOF HMD tracking and 6DOF motion controllers.

Full NoloVR support is built into the iVRy SteamVR driver. The iVRy driver is compatible with the NoloVR Windows Driver and NoloVR Assistant, but does not require any NoloVR software to be installed.

The iVRy SteamVR driver adds a settings UI to the SteamVR dashboard, that can be used to configure the mobile app and the driver, and is fully compatible with NoloVR touch controls, as well as Steam supported gamepads.

    @Corei5y Good to hear. Does that mean that the "turn around"/recentering issues are fixed, and that you're able to bring up the settings UI overlay?
  • UI still doesn't open but I think that it may be my hardware that's grasping for straws. Its not meant for gaming so I wouldn't be surprised about something not working. And if the overlay runs off the phone I think I have too many apps that take up too much phone ram. I'm just happy I can play vr at all  :D  
  • The recentering is working phenomenally though :)  
  • @Corei5y ; Can you expand a bit on "doesn't open"? Do you see the icon in the dashboard dock?
