The Turning Forest user reviews :

Job well done! Great job by the BBC! This app gives just enough interactivity alongside the beautiful scenery developed. It is a superb start to your Daydream experience, and is also perfect for demoing to your friends and family. RECOMMENDATION: Use this app first before daydreaming with other apps in the session. It causes quite the amount of heat and pull on the CPU, and you want to avoid any sort of overheating.

Best one so far! The first time I tried this one I got booted out because my phone was overheating. Most likely because I had done a couple other VR experiences just prior. It’s worked great ever since. Love visuals, and you should definitely put headphones in to get the full experience since you can make music by using the remote. I only wish it was longer since it is a fairly short experience.

Captivating, beautiful intro to VR. When I hand someone my Daydream view to try out, I almost always put them in the Turning Forest. It makes for a great intro to VR and has stunning visuals. If I absolutely had to come up with a critique, I might say that I wish it was a bit more interactive.
