Optimizing VR on iPhones (iOS)

We love the iPhone. It's an awesome device, but it lacks one key function for a great VR experience: full screen mode in the Safari browser. Fortunately there is a simple workaround for that. As a bonus, this trick will allow you to use Kuula in the same way as a native app.

The option is called Add to Home Screen. As you will see below, it's as easy as installing an app from the App Store, but it does no take up any space on your phone memory. It's a win-win!

First, open Safari and go to When you are on the home page, click the share button in the middle of the bottom menu. From the dialog the appears, choose Add to Home Screen.

One the next screen you can choose the name for the home screen icons. Kuula is probably the best choice, so simply click Add in the top/right corner and close your browser. You will see a new Kuula icon on your home screen.

If you click on this icon, it will open the Kuula webpage in fullscreen mode with no browser bar or other user interface elements.

And that is all. You can now navigate to your posts or tours and view the in full screen Virtual Reality mode. Enjoy!
