What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Pretty simple: Our goal is to create the world’s best VR tool. And we can only achieve this together with its users. That’s why we decided to go in Early Access to develop a breathtaking VR tool supported with your suggestions, feedback, and reports.”

Approximately how long will this software be in Early Access?

“Well, we don't want to make any false promises. So let’s be honest here:
We expect Holoswitch to last in Early Access till approx. November 2020. We've come a long way already but we also have very big plans and dreams. And probably we’ll have to overcome some major technical hurdles which will take a bit more time. But so far we have found a solution to every obstacle.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Besides the core features you’ll find in the description below we’re working on interactions with your smartphone, controlled from within the virtual world. You’ll be able to have (video) calls, answering messages and many more.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, the first and most important feature (Notifications) is implemented. Our highest priority is to make everything super stable. Two more features are to come in approx. Q2 2020. Please find more information about that in the description below.”

Will this software be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Short and honest answer: Yes! Holoswitch will approx. cost 15.99$ for the full release. It is very important to us that Early Access users are rewarded for their support. That’s why the final price will be higher.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We created a small but nice Discord Server https://discord.gg/B7YPtEu in which we give support, collect feedback, suggestions, and ideas. Besides that, the Community can always reach out to us via our Social Media Channels:
