This week on the GeekWire radio show and podcast: Amazon challenges Netflix with a monthly streaming subscription option for $8.99/month, and GeekWire reporter James Risley shares what learned from his month with the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

Plus, what happens when fans take over a pro team, making crowdsourced decisions about plays and everything else with a smartphone app? A new Indoor Football League startup is trying it out.

And finally, we dive into the world of smartphone virtual reality, with tips on getting started in VR using an iPhone or Android device. Our App of the Week is Vrse, a virtual reality app featuring immersive 360-degree video stories and animations. We also recommend Jaunt VR for 360-degree videos, and Mobile VR Station for downloaded 360-degree MP4s. My preferred VR viewer for my iPhone 6s Plus is the first-generation VR Box headset, with adjustable lenses.
