    Thread [Q] Gear VR 360 degree photo maker?

    With google cardboard, I can use Google's "Cardboard Camera" app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.vr.cyclops) to create my own 360 degree 3D photos that I can view with google's cardboard app. Is there something similar for use with the Gear VR apps?
