SideQuest is a third-party app that allows users to get more apps for their Oculus Quest. It has two main goals: on one hand, to provide users access to content before its release on the Oculus Store, and on the other hand, to support developers with a place to validate their content or to kickstart a project. The software was developed by SideQuest Ltd.. It is important to note that sideloading isn’t considered as piracy, which makes the app legal. On this SideQuest download page, we discuss some of its key features, as well as some additional information.

Key features
