The next best thing is to use a phonewith NFC support with a Cardboard headset that has a magneticswitch, or a Cardboard 2.0 headset that can tap your phone'sscreen.• Catch up on what's new in the Solar System! Yourcockpit dashboard will display informational text at most tourstops. There are sometimes additional pages ofinformation with extra detail.• Translated into multiple languages. Some portions ofthe experience are still in English, and this is not the fault ofthe translator(s) as I just didn't have the full text ready forthem at the time.• 50 minutes of narration / voiceover is now available asan add-on. To purchase this option, find the Narration panel in thegreen Options menu during the tour.Add-Ons• The Narration add-on is now available! Includes 50minutes of narration for the entire tour. Male voice only for now,with a female voice coming soon. The narration is in English, andincludes English subtitles as an option (off by default). Topurchase this option, find the Narration panel in the green Optionsmenu during the tour.Some other things to know:• Built using Cardboard SDK 0.4.10. This should further improveapp stability for many devices, and an experimental driftcorrection mode is now an option that you can select whenstarting up the app. Note that this drift correction is great fordevices where the scene just keeps rotating and rotating, but ifyou already had a stable view it may make things worse with a"floaty" feel to the head tracking. Hopefully you will find a modethat suits you! (There is a newer Cardboard SDK but there arecurrently some technical problems updating to that. Staytuned.).• If you are still having trouble with drifting, one trick thatcan help is set the phone down on a flat surface for 20 secondswhile the app is in VR mode.• On some phones, your view may occasionally jump suddenly. Thisbehavior should be improved from before, but I suspect it's notcompletely solved yet.• If you ever need to reset your "forward direction", simplytilt your headset (with your phone in it) on its left or rightside.• Note that the tour isn't over yet after you've finishedtouring the Solar System!
