While it’s usually more fun to explore the metaverse with a V/R or A/R headset, it isn’t absolutely necessary. We pretty much all have smartphones, and most virtual worlds have smartphone apps.

Of course, with all of the recent buzz surrounding the metaverse, many developers have released their own apps in an attempt to act as early adopters – and flooded the market with subpar functionality along the way. Here, we’ll discuss our favorite metaverse navigator apps for iOS.

Metaverse – Experience Browser

A/R is already wildly popular and is set to take Web 3.0 by storm. GoMeta’s Metaverse – Experience Browser app brings interactive A/R experiences to a new level. It brings your favorite characters to your home in real-time.

It has also proven to be a great learning aid for teachers. They use its intuitive Metaverse Studio builder to create unique experiences that, according to educators, make it easier to engage young minds.

You might be wondering why we would include an app that only has 3.3 stars as a “best of” choice. Yes, the app is still in development, so it has a few kinks to work out. But its unique take on A/R and ease of use for any skill level make it a must-have metaverse app for iOS.

IMVU: 3D Avatar Creator & Chat

IMVU was one of the earliest metaverse projects, long before it became a household world. Its success is largely credited to the platform’s heavy reliance on social interactions. It has proven especially popular among younger audiences when they’re unable to spend time together in person.

An entire culture has been built around IMVU’s unique 3D interactions, and its iPhone app is at the center of it all. It’s one of the easiest metaverse apps to use and offers seamless integrations with YouTube and other platforms.

New Layer – Metaverse Editor

It seems that everyone wants a piece of the metaverse – but not everyone has the skills to do it. This is where the New Layer Metaverse Editor comes in. It allows users to easily create 3D models and place them in the world. It also features a social component that allows users to easily take pictures or record videos with their A/R creations and share them on social media.
