A good friend of mine came across the SmoothTrack app (avaiable for iPhone and Android) that uses your phone for head tracking. I got it last night and even though I only had a temporary make-shift way of mounting my phone in a good selfie position, I am amazed at how well the tracking works. There is most certainly room for improvement and obviously it cannot compare to VR, but I think for many it can serve as an affordable or temporary alternative to VR.

I tried this app out (Galaxy S10+). It works really well. Definitely worth it.
Just had to get a phone mount to fit on top of my yoke. All good now.
