    I think what you're asking is how can you play non-VR games in VR? If so, the app you mentioned (Native SBS for Android) looks like it should work, but if it's not working, I would check out Trinus VR or VRidge (Riftcat). Both of those will allow you to play games on your desktop computer as though they were VR games on your phone.

    One thing to keep in mind when trying apps like the Native SBS one: you might also need to download the Cardboard Enabler app and disable the Gear VR service until you're done with the Cardboard-style app. If you don't, your phone will go into Gear VR mode right away when you put it in the Gear VR.

    And then the Cardboard app won't work.

    That out of the way, there are some racing and flight games available within the Oculus Store for Gear VR, as well as some Cardboard ones on the Play Store. Maybe trying one of those would be better than using a workaround to make a non-VR app work in VR? When using the workarounds, you take a performance hit and it won't run as smoothly.

    There is also Samsung Phonecast that Samsung recently made available for S8 phones only. It supports a limited set of Android apps but the experience is probably fairly polished. The link might not work if you don't have an S8 or something but it's there.
