Like any software. The value comes in the ability to make your life easier and better. Great value here.

Pros
I am extremely impressed by the overall quality of the software. It's not a cheap hack and works everytime. Simple to learn and use, I was able to create my first video in minutes. It took just a short time to learn how to insert floor plans. Adding to MLS listings could not be more simple. Hotspots, the ability to tag features with prices and information make it a great experience for the viewer. Customizing icons, logos and contact information for personal branding establishes your authority and brand. Back end management features give you the ability to organize and scale with your whole organization. It couldn't be better.. but it is. Add your own background music, insert Youtube vidoes and even embed 3D models. WOW!!!!

Cons
The only thing it lacks for me is the ability to personalize each video from a mailing list. This would be a marketing advantage, if you are an agent with a list, you could send a video with personalized messages.

Price and usability

Pros
The price is pretty low compared to others companies that offer the same services. There is no fee for publishing the tour. You can create/edit them on your computer or in your smartphone, which for me is incredibly faster than the PC.

Cons
You have to keep your account active in order to have your tours online. If you cancel your account or downgrade to the free tier you will be able to have only 3 tours with 3 panoramas each. The platform compresses the images, so if you didn't use a good 360 camera you will experiment some noise on your images.

Response from iStaging


Hi Manuel, thanks for this detailed review! Our product team has been notified of your comments regarding the tour storage count as well as the image compression. Stay tuned!

Pros
None. There was nothing to like. SaaS lacks customer service and the text is misleading.

Cons
Cons: What did you like least about this software? It appears this is a con. I signed up and had a couple of questions. First time the user puts in their phone. If the phone is not accepted, you get this message: SORRY, PHONE IS NOT COMPATIBLE... Unfortunately, VR Maker cannot create good quality tours with your smartphone alone :( But hang on, with the amazing 360° camera bundles, you too can become a VR master! Check out our available bundles here. The text invites you in to sign up but you never see anything about a 360° camera bundle. The software had a message board opportunity. I asked a question. The response said they were out and would answer in three hours. They never answered. When you sign up and it doesn't work out. Beware: You lose your money. They indicate it is their right to keep your money for providing zip, zero, nada services. If they were in the U.S., they would be called Democrats. They believe your money is their right.

Pros
The price cannot be beat, especially compared to Matterport! I like that it's a DIY solution so I don't have to hire a photographer, and with the fisheye lens attached to my phone I don't need an expensive 360 camera. I love that I can brand it to myself and use my own logo instead of the iStaging logo.

Cons
There are some stitching errors using the fisheye lens no matter how slowly I turn in a circle. And I don't like that you have to log into the app using wifi. I have a listing out in the country with no wifi, so the first time I went to take pictures I couldn't do it with no wifi. The next time I logged in at home, drove over there, and since I was already logged in it worked for a while. But then I got an error message and had to go back to the home screen and it logged me out. It took me several visits to the house to get a full set of photos. I also wish we could put the custom logo on the ceiling and not just on the floor.

Benefits

Used in conjunction with the VR Cam app and a rotator, a 720° lens clips on to any iPhone or Android smartphone and widens the camera view to capture complete panoramas.

Prospective retail customers can try before they buy with LiveTour, which can in turn increase sales, reduce returns, and improve customer feedback.

Realtors can first show properties in VR with LiveTour's 360° VR tour, before taking interested buyers in person.

Event organizers can attract more people to events by showcasing the event space in immersive VR beforehand.
