things to know before starting virtual reality app development
The thought of transforming ideas into the development of an application on a rectangular screen to a completely immersive environment may seem impossible. A virtual reality app development company will face many challenges because they are at the same place where app development companies were a few years ago. There are a lot of opportunities when it comes to VR app development, despite all the barriers developers face. 
The development of virtual reality applications is becoming easier with the new tools created to enhance the process. This will definitely encourage more people to invest in virtual app development. However, before investing in virtual reality development, you must put some factors into consideration. Below are some of the questions you need to ask and know before starting a virtual reality app development.
Available hardware:
Not every device is available to all VR developers out there. Most VR development companies that work exclusively, and are content creators work with some major manufacturers of these devices. So these manufacturers usually give these VR app developers access to their developer hardware. As a new VR developer, it may be difficult to get this hardware because they are quite expensive. But this shouldn’t be a problem, as most times it helps the developer to carry out his first project with what is available. Most apps, especially games, require special hardware to function, so the developer has to keep this in mind and make sure he has the required hardware for the app before developing it. Now the unavailability of the exact device needed is not a really big problem, but you wouldn’t want to go ahead and develop an app when you don’t have a device to test run and experience the app you just built.
The amount of money you are determined to invest:

A VR development project can kick off without investing a huge amount of money. But there are some expensive devices available in the industry for VR development. But a beginner, you can do without some of these devices from the start, especially if you like carrying out one or two experiments before making decisions to go into the developing fully. Making more investments on more intensified hardware and devices will definitely be of help as VR development has its basics of 3D programming. Also, you have to learn how to build Cardboard supported apps for iOS and Android. So getting those resource intense hardware and device will really be helpful. Aside from the cost of devices and hardware, you will also spend some money on meetups and events. Now to get yourself more developed, you are going to be attending events and training, and these training will most times cost you money. Another great way of learning is conferences, where you get to meet and learn from other VR developers probably working on projects you might be in interested in. Some webinars may be cheaper to attend since you would not have to spend any money to reach the venue.
What do you really want to build:
To start your VR development, you may not need to have the perfect answer to this question. But with a vision and an idea of what you want in mind, you will be able to structure out your learning strategies and carry out some demo projects. Starting to learn WebVR in time is really going to help you if you have a long-term vision of making websites that are VR enabled and functions with full APIs and with JavaScript’s library. Once you have a goal like this, settling down to start learning the use of Blueprints will be a waste of time. There are two major application devices, and they are augmented vs. virtual reality devices. Now you also have to put into consideration the specific device you have to work with. One other major thing that will help you to know the kind of tools to start working with now is to have a picture or an idea a project you would want to work on in the future. Once you concede this in mind, it will help you to channel your current learning projects into a building block for your future project. Also learning how to make use of a terrain editor will be a brilliant idea if your dream project entails working with rich textures and beautiful environments.
Do you already have an area you are interested in?:
For some VR app development companies that are very passionate about high-quality 3D audio, it wouldn’t make sense for them to start from the genesis of learning a specific framework design such as environment and light designing. They should put their interests into consideration and how it can benefit the growing VR development industry. In which they can find some developers who might already be working in the field of their interest and to communicate with and find out from them if what you are about to do is worth investing more time and resources into. 
How can you tackle technical problems when they show up?:
technical problems
One amazing thing is the speed at which more new and improved developments are being created for virtual reality technology. Narrowing it down to virtual reality headsets as a case study, virtual reality headsets come in various specifications. And there is no specific standard for the development of VR experiences, for now, that’s why it is wise to carry out a thorough and intensive research on the different kinds of headsets before developing a virtual reality app for them. One common issue with VR apps for headsets is the user interface, as they have just a few interaction and control standard that functions. And most of the time, the few available interactions and controller don’t work for all applications. This is why you should select the VR headset you want to develop an app before embarking on the project of development. Now, this wise choice selection is not only applicable to VR headset but also applicable to any virtual reality app to be developed on any other device.
These are some very important questions a VR app development company should be able to handle to stand out in the virtual reality world. VR development is no longer a figment of our imagination or a possibility in sci-fi movies alone; it is real. It is also a promising industry even though it has a lot of shortfalls in the early stage. Still, it is expected that Virtual Reality development will become one of the biggest industries. The race has already begun, and it is used in almost all facets of life today.
