When it comes to oculus app content, we’re familiar with the Oculus storefront and its strict curation. This is the way we ensure the quality of games and apps high, and prevent low-quality content from getting through. But, this also makes it difficult for independent developers to make their VR content on the Oculus platform.

Oculus created the “App Lab” as a solution to this issue. It allows independent developers to publish their VR content on an official place without having to go through the rigorous curation https://renderingwithstyle.com/2021/12/29/oculus-rift-review/ of the Oculus Storefront. The App Lab is very similar to the Oculus storefront. You can browse and download apps the same as you would in the traditional virtual storefront. However, it’s less curated.

If your app is successful in the App Lab it may be promoted to the Oculus Storefront and gain more visibility and reach a wider audience. This is not based on just download numbers but also retention metrics, long-term profitability, the development teams, etc.

If you’re looking to explore the entire range of Oculus Quest apps, we suggest you turn on developer mode on your Meta headset and then try App Lab. There are tons of exciting games and experiences to play, including well-known non-games such as Tilt Brush which turns your headset in to an immersive art studio. Quill Theater is a cool VR media app that features amazing 6DoF animations and movies made by the community.
