A Great Program and Customer Service

* A great alternative for head tracking while using a simulator.

* Price is fair

* Customer Service is five star’s

I had issues trying to connect with FS9. E-mailed the developer with questions. He replied back and guided me same day.

This does everything you need and it is seriously so simple to setup. A little bit of networking knowledge is all that is
required, it took under five minutes to get it going. The instructions in the description are spot on and don’t leave any room
for mistake!

It is a tad bit nervy to have your p

Talk about a game changer! This app does exactly what it says it does. I was actually surprised how easy it was to just jump into
Squadrons and see that it automatically started working!!

Initial set up, however, will probably be a little on the difficult side for those that aren’t used to changin

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE continue development on this

Fantastic head tracking solution for any sim that works with trackIR. Low latency, smooth, configurable and very immersive.
Definitely happy with my purchase. Can't wait to see what's next!

John the Developer is AWESOME

So I swear every time I try something like this it never works correctly. I watched John’s video and it was super easy. I had a
minor issue, emailed John and presto he knew right away what the issue was. Wow this makes MSFS 2020 a whole new beast. The app
works great tracks my movements perfectly.

I generally don’t bother leaving reviews for apps but this one definitely deserves it. Worth every penny. For anyone out there
who’s struggling to get FaceTrackNOIR working with an old webcam I’m telling you, ditch that and buy this app. Took 5 mins to
setup OpenTrack and you’re up and running...

As easy and as awesome as everyone says!

Honestly for $10 you can’t go wrong here. I’ve always wanted to try VR and this is an excellent intro and was so freakin easy
to use. Downloaded the app on my iPhone and the app on the computer and within literal minutes I was playing Star Wars Squadrons
on my PC with head tracking.

Here before this app goes viral.

I am not one to leave reviews normally but this app is an exception. I have used it with Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 for a
couple hours and I am blown away. I don’t know how I haven’t heard of this up to this point but it seems like magic. I

The real deal!

I *never* leave reviews but this is the real deal. It is awesome and works so well with MSFT flight sim 2020.
Just follow the install instructions on his website and it then works seamlessly with flight sim without even needing any

Very Impressed

I bought this gem today and I am very impressed. I have TrackIR but I am constantly struggling with it.

I installed it on to my old iPhone SE. Setup was fairly easy, just like the tutorial except if you have a anti-virus program you
will want to use their firewall setting procedure or temporarily

'Amazing for $10'

'Works exceptionally well considering it’s 1/15th the price of tracIR, which is half the price of just getting a VR headset.
This app works well and although it seems to bug out every once in a while and not respond to open track, the price point is hard
to beat. Using it for dcs works wonders, I
