What are the best Cardboard VR apps?

My niece just received a Cardboard VR and asked me which iOS or Android VR apps she should start with. Help me maintain my "favorite uncle" status! πŸ˜„

    Google Street View has a VR mode that let's you visit just about any place in the world. Just tap the little Cardboard button and off you go.

    Youtube has a large collection of 360 videos with support for motion tracking. I can't comment on the quality of content available, but it's free and worth checking out. You can also watch all non-360 videos in VR for what it's worth.

    Really well done VR experience. The best non-video app I tried on Nexus 5X with upgraded cardboard.

    Maybe the best VR video for a kid to try. It's the video I give everyone to try as their first. There's not much movement, doesn't make people sick, it's not scary and it's quite fun!

    You don't have to put your cardboard off again! Surf the web in VR.
