Experimental manga viewer for Gear VR


Mangaroll is a Gear VR app that lets you read your comics and manga by turning *yourself* around in a circle, preferably while seated on an office chair to prevent bumping into walls. Just drop your folders and comic book files into a folder called "Manga" in your SD card root.

Through a more-or-less simple configuration file, you can also add online services to feed you with a (nearly) endless number of manga. A simple example can be found here, which you can place in your Manga folder.

This is an early alpha version and might be buggy 'n ugly. Developed to toy around with the Mobile SDK.

Controls:

  • Tap where it makes sense
  • Click back to... go a layer back
  • Swipe down to dismiss the menu
  • While reading manga, use the touch pad to zoom in and out

What is SideloadVR?

SideloadVR builds custom GearVR .apks that include the user's signature file. This means that developers can share their ideas without going through Oculus Home and the global signing process.

SideloadVR is built on the idea of an open system, where developers can freely share their content with an extended tester user base.

If you are a developer and want to be included in SideloadVR, please fill out this form and we will get back to you.
