The toy top that buzzes with sci-fi sounds and glows with limitless, colorful shapes...
Best of iPhone Entertainment in the US and 8 other countries - App Store Rewind 2011
Cosmic Top is a toy, a 3D audiovisual physics simulation of a spinning, wobbling, and morphing top. The top floats among stars and takes on unlimited colorful shapes and sci-fi sounds which glow and hum in stereo from your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. Swipe to spin it, pinch to zoom it, or hold to brake it. If you rotate your device, you can see and hear the top from all sides. Record your own spin and tumble sounds and then hear both tracks played back in sync with the motion of the top. Create and share video of your favorite top action. Edit echo effects, color flow, and spin inertia of each top style. Best of all, with a touch of the cosmic button, a new cosmos of sight and sound will be created for you to explore.

Hypnotic and colorful
At first when you open the app, it appears to randomly generate tops. They are colorful and have cool shapes and designs. Then you can use your fingers in the top screen to move/spin the top around. The bottom screen has settings such as making the top spin in different ways or generating a new top. There are a lot of options, neat sound effects and tops to choose from. I just wish you could create your own tops, but otherwise this app is pretty cool.
Wow! What an update! Love the colors and shapes. Being able to record my own sounds for the tops is so much fun. I love how you can record two separate sounds for one top and play them both back at different speeds. Can get some neat mixtures of sounds. A new type of cosmic instrument even. Keep up the good work.
Colors! Lights! Shapes! Mesmo-lucious!
Can't stop playing with the Cosmic Top! Can't stop typing exclamation points!
This app has me utterly jazzed.
You can start a group of lights twirling, rolling, wheezing, twisting, with noises that vary with the amount of touch on your screen, the kind of sounds you would hear in original "Star Trek" at warp speed.
Loads of fun.
