Looking for an innovative, immersive app experience to entertain your buddies with this weekend? Then you may be interested in 360-degree animated film app Spotlight Stories, which just landed on iOS after a couple of years as an Android exclusive.
Using a combination of 2D and 3D animations, the app lets you move your body and mobile device to check out what’s happening in different parts of the video — essentially letting a story unfold around you. If you’re remotely interested in seeing the potential of the iPhone and iPad as a way of telling stories in a totally new way, you won’t regret it.
The technology behind the app was developed by Motorola’s R&D department, which was acquired by Google as part of the Motorola purchase in 2011. It boasts impressive talent from the likes of former-Pixar filmmakers, with more sure to be added over time.

Spotlight Stories is available from the App Store for newer iPhone and iPad models, running iOS 8 and later.
