Home is still in desperate need for updates.
I prefer everything about Oculus Home over Steam VR while in the headset, but out of it, Steam wins by a landslide. Home just doesn't feel like a finished product I would pay for on the PC side.
I know there has been discussion before, but I just want to bring it up again.
WARNING: WALL OF TEXT
Here is a list of features I would like updated:
With Touch released, and gallery apps available, there are a TON of experiences. Some things that can be improved with searching are
The store is very cumbersome to use, and many problems can be fixed by fixing the search function, but holy cow, it's sad that Origin is easier to navigate than Home.
List view - Grids look pretty, but list views would be nice to have too
Show more info - Ratings, touch support, and intensity would be easy to display alongside the price
Categories - Have categories be a sidebar near the top so finding games is easier.
Wishlist - I want to save what games to buy next so I don't have to keep an awkward text file to remember
Better Media Player - The current one loads terribly slow on mediocre internet. I always end up looking the game up on YouTube instead. Upgrade your player, and I will more likely spend more $$$ because I can actually see what I'm about to buy!
Sort Reviews - Reviews are great (thanks for listening to us), make it so at the top of the page where it shows the stars, we can click it to immediately bring us down to reviews. Let us sort by most helpful, and click the stars to show only reviews that gave that rating
Refunds - Oculus plz
The library is okay as it is, but could have a couple of fixes.
List view - It's efficient and has always worked. I don't care if it's not as pretty. I can't see it when in the HMD. It makes life so much more easy in the long run.
Download management. Show me all the things trying to download in one place in what order. It's a headache to try prioritizing a new game to get downloaded first when five other things are trying to update. Don't start updates immediately, give me the option to do that. It's annoying.
Sorting options - categories, and user made folders to organize would be lovely. Especially in HMD mode.
External applications in Home - Launch non-home things from home, like Steam-VR. Using injectors is cumbersome.
Time Played - I love this feature in Steam, and would love to see it here
Start in Desktop Mode Button - It's a bit un-accessible as is, making me choose Steam over Home on some games. Simple convenience would change that.
Check for updates manually - Add a button that will manually check for a Home update so I don't panic and figure out the reason Home won't let me register my touch controllers is because my version of Home is from 6 months ago, and never updated since I never opened it while I was away.
Make configure Rift an option in the initial dropdown - This is my most used reason for going into settings. Make it easier to get to.
Redeem codes bar in Store - Make it so it's easier to find this by having it as part of the store tab once the store is fixed up.
Allow unknown sources by default - Oculus plz.
