Difficulties Related to Virtual Reality App Development:
Below discussed are its associated difficulties,
The Technology Is Out of Reach–
It is known that less than one percent out of the 1.43 billion computers existing in the world possesses the graphical competences needed for VR (virtual reality) technology, as per the research company named Gartner. Though there are definitely high-end computers which are essentially optimized for it, they are too costly to be accustomed. Moreover, while carrying out virtual reality app development, this technology is very bandwidth-intensive. The necessity for advanced hardware is not restricted to only computers, for instance as the company prepares to launch the PlayStation VR headset, Sony company is functioning on an advanced version of gaming console of PlayStation 4 which will attempt to boost graphics, so that it can manage VR very smoothly. In similar way, Microsoft decides to launch an advanced version of its Xbox One console in this year, and the anticipation is that the more commanding version will be facilitated to support 4K gaming as well as implementation of VR headsets such as brand Oculus Rift. It is thus suggested that virtual reality app development is not more prevailing for an excellent VR experience. However for the majority of part, the app development is either remaining to be released, prevailing in early developmental phases, or just outside the budget of normal customers.
The Health Effects Are Still Unknown–

Nevertheless majority of them are surely enthusiastic to try or deploy its development themselves without any need of virtual reality app developers. This poses a question as what happens to the other people who do not play games or are pleased by usual mobile gaming experience on their smartphones. It is considered that stockholders in a host of fields, comprising entertainment, real estate, and healthcare, are deciding to invest in this app development, but the question is can the technology actually take off amongst non-gamers. It is quite perceptible that the education sector is previously implementing this app development and the sector train users in a diversity of industries too. However, it appears that days are still a long way off when people make use of VR headsets for stuffs else than gaming.
The Absence of a Monetization Plan–
In the field of virtual reality app development, it is fund out that there is one more problem and that is the lack of appropriate monetization plan. It is common to understand that money drives almost every industry we know, so if there is earning to be made, investors will confidently follow. In this app development, there have previously been adequate number of investors prevailing, but it seems that it takes time before they start to gain the rewards. Recently, in last summer, a many venture entrepreneurs stated that their investments in this app development will not start to pay off anytime shortly. Additionally, virtual reality app development would not become a consistent money-maker till it triumphs the mainstream, and in order to accomplish that it requires appropriate marketing. As this is the case, users in charge of marketing the app suffer from a variety of challenges as well as issues. This basically comprises handling with bad press, serving people comprehend the potential of the app development, and additional issues that usually wave novice industries.
Price Is Still an Issue–
