From flying with the Blue Angels to high-speed racing at the track, immerse yourself in the thrill of being there.

• Stream the best 360° videos from across the USA TODAY NETWORK.

Troubleshooting - Using a Viewer:
• Make sure the center of the phone screen is aligned with the center of the viewer.
• If the video looks blurry, your phone may be tilted in the viewer. Trying adjusting your phone so it’s aligned flat against the viewer.
• If you have a case on your phone, it may help to remove it.

VR Stories by USA TODAY app reviews
What's the point? Can't "sit back and relax" gotta keep moving around. Why not offer a simple "flat" view? WAY too SLOOOOOOW. Video constantly stops and buffers...or it crashes altogether...and I am on a fast UVerse connection. I'm uninstalling. Not worth my time.
Some bias 2/5
Like with most mainstream media, there is bias in here. For example, you have the Women's March on Washington, but not the Women's Pro-Life March. You have the Trump inauguration protest, but not the Trump inauguration itself. Once you get past the bias, there is some fairly good stuff in here, like rock climbing, auto racing and more.
Constant loading and interruptions to the video. I was using high speed wifi. Perhaps they need a better server?
Please fix 1/5
Crashes a lot. Please tweak it it so it works in a Viewmaster. I really want to VR view your stories!!!
I wish I could watch all news like this. Please, make more reports.
Beautiful app, easy to use. I would recommend it especially for the multiple ways that you can view the stories.
Very Little New Content 2/5
The app works well and the stories are really cool, but there isn't little to no new content. Only one new "story" has been posted in the last few weeks.
Super dope 5/5
Can't wait for more videos!
Very impressive, works great on my Air2, and 6s 5/5

The Honda Indy Car 360 perspective is unreal. I felt like I was a passenger in the 2 seat Indy Car. Great app!
VR effect doesnt work right on iPhone 6S plus 3/5
I tried it on with the view master headset and than tried the cardboard and the NEJE headset they all produce double vision like experience. Great idea too bad the dual vision somehow is not correct
