Yahoo! has released a Flickr VR app that allows users to view the Flickr community's 360-degree photos with a Samsung Gear VR headset. The top curated 360-degree photos from the tens of thousands available willl appear at the top of the app.

"You’ll instantly be transported to another place and time," writes principal engineer Bertrand Fan. "From Aurora Borealis in the glowing night sky in Finland to Horseshoe Bend of the Colorado River in Arizona, people who view Flickr 360° photos for the first time do not want to take the Samsung Gear VR off."
