With AppSwitcher, you can switch rift apps from within VR. From v0.4, you can also access desktop.
It executes Unity app in background and automatically configures it to windows 1280x800 mode, and then stream it to rift with HUD overlay. So, the screens must be in extended mode for it to work properly.
Feedbacks are welcome!
* Ctrl+Shift+Z to toggle HUD
* arrow up and down to select app
* and return to switch app
You should try latest-unstable
since it'll have more features and all versions are unstable anyway!
* Windows Vista, 7, 8
* .net framework 4.5
