FotoFrezVR is an Augmented Reality iPhone and Android live camera effects app. It requires a VR headset to contain the smartphone (iOS or Android). There is also a Samsung Gear version of FotoFrez available through the Oculus Android app. To control the app you can use the FotoFrez Apple Watch app, a suitable Gamepad (MFi for Apple device), remote or wand device.

FotoFrezVR is a compendium of well over 100 fun visual and art effects. See the real world through FotoFrez eyes. FotoFrezVR app requires a Virtual Reality (VR) headset or VR goggles that will hold your phone and allow the camera to see the world. Requires a VR headset with a camera hole or slot.

FotoFrezVR augments the reality around you, as seen through your phone camera and the VR headset. FotoFrezVR contains over 100 different visual effects to change your view of the world and all the objects within it. See kaleidoscopic views, hall of mirrors effects, pixels and matrix effects, psychedelic colours, line art styles, pop art styles, stone, fire and water effects and more. FotoFrezVR contains a marathon 26 “effect groups”, and within each group there are a range of different colours, styles and variations.

On iPhone, you can have full control of navigating the whole range of effects by using the companion FotoFrezVR Apple Watch app. FotoFrezVR can also be controlled using an Apple compatible MFi (Made for iPhone) GamePad controller.

On Android, you can use an Android-compatible game pad to control navigation, or you can use VR headsets that support a screen tap.

When using the Apple watch app or a gamepad, each effects session lasts for 5 minute, and then reverts back to the app home page. You can then take a small rest, and then choose another effects group.

You can also tap the screen to start auto scrolling through the main effects. You can tap the screen, then load the phone into the VR headset. If you are using VR Glasses that clip onto the phone, then you can tap the screen using your finger. Each effect shows for 20 seconds and then step onto the next main effect, so it is a scrolling sampler.

iOS – CONTROL FOTOFREZVR WITH APPLE WATCH: if you have an Apple Watch the FotoFrezVR has a companion watch app available. This allows you to step through each FotoFrezVR effect, move up and down levels, and return to the home screen of the FotoFrez app.
