App Store Description

3D movies presented the way they're supposed to be!

Did you get a set of Google Cardboard virtual reality goggles like Pete did for Christmas? Did you slip your iPhone into the holder, strap the unit to your head and start watching movies? It was awesome, right?

But, there's a problem! 3D "half side by side" movies aren't designed to be displayed on your iPhone screen. And when you play them on your phone, they're stretched vertically to use every possible pixel! Great for your 3D television, but not so great for your VR Goggles.

Movies aren't supposed to be viewed in a square box. People look weird; they're all too skinny. And circles all become ovals! What you need is an app that takes those videos and squishes them down to their proper original aspect ratio.

Pete couldn't find an app to do this, so he created Petes 3D Player!

This app will take any movie that Apple's native movie player can play (H264 movies) and let you control the displayed aspect ratio. It works with videos you've loaded via iTunes file sharing, files you have on your own servers or even all of YouTube. Pete even added some short public domain sample videos that are hosted up on the cloud for you to watch.

To use this app, you'll need a set of 3D goggles to slip your phone in. Pete also uses a little bluetooth media remote to start and stop the videos, change volume, etc. while his phone is in his goggles, but you don't need that to use the app.

Keep in mind that this player won't play every possible format out there, but it will play the most common ones! Finally watch 3D movies the way they were intended!
