Play - 4D Video

Spherical Inc.
[ This app is no longer available for download ]

The first essential video improvement since …ever.
Freely navigate any new video in 4D spacetime.

With Play, your videos have secret powers. Use the app to record good ol' 2D videos (up to 30 seconds). Export them, edit them, and share them just like normal videos. However, unlike normal videos, when you view them in the Play app, you can experience them in the fourth dimension.

While viewing a video, tap the 4D button (or tap and hold) to break out from 2D and experience it in a virtual space. Tilt your phone to navigate your video in 360º. And when you're ready, tap the 4D button again to return to the current frame. For the first time, video and spherical imaging have been fused into a single format that just works.

Post your videos to Facebook where your friends can view them in 2D (or they can download Play to view them in 4D). Plus, once you've posted a video, Play provides direct access to any 4D videos posted by your Facebook friends.

Play is proudly offered by San Francisco-based Sphere. If you're having issues with the app, please visit and we'll be happy to assist! Patents pending.
