Flickr has released a new app for the Samsung Gear VR. What this piece of software does is allow the wearer to experience photos in virtual reality. It's another cool, yet rather pointless exercise one can partake in with VR headsets. With Flickr VR you'll be able to enjoy 360-degree photos that have been published on the service.

It's a neat way to really get a feel for a particular location, or to witness the sheer scope of an object. Of course, you'll need to share spherical photos of your own to Flickr to ensure there's enough new content to see, as well as allowing other Gear VR owners to check out what you've captured.
