Hi, folks. I'm trying to get the Oculus app for my S7 Edge. I need the app so I can download a T-Mobile promotional game bundle before the offer expires.

Please note that I need to do this without my Gear VR. Also, this info is unfortunately of no help: https://support.oculus.com/help/oculus/787018501428919/

Thanks in advance.

    The only way to get the software is to dock into a Gear VR headset.

    There should be a way to do it without docking into a headset, because the bundle needs to be downloaded before the headset is even scheduled to ship.

    i found the sdk here https://developer.oculus.com/downloads/
    it contains some games (e.g. shadowgun.apk) but no oculus app, which is what you need to register your gear VR with to access the 6 games.

    i think you have to place the phone in the gear VR to get the oculus app...

    You can get the app/games without the headset: https://www.reddit.com/r/GalaxyS7/comments/4bmg9r/how_to_redeem_the_6game_oculus_preorder_bonus/ Mine is not scheduled to ship till April 18th, I was able to install app and games, plus download more from the store, now just have to wait.... :smiley:

    Jay -

    Never mind. I thought the link was just a rehash of the information I already had. Went back and read the whole thing. Now I just need to figure out if I want to install Nova Launcher, or if there's something I'm familiar with that I can use.

    Thanks for your help!

    For new people, insert your phone into the headset, it will tell you to remove the phone, unlock it and follow the prompts. Remove the phone and unlock it and you will see a screen that says welcome and hit install. then make accounts, enter access code and you're there.
