★★★★★One of the best of it's type-Oatbagger
★★★★★its the best particle manipulator I've messed with. Really cool job-Chontler
★★★★★Totally Awesome.... Running on an iPad this is seriously psychedelic. I have tried every other visualiser on the iPad and apart from it's bigger brother I-beams this eats them all for breakfast. I have said it before but the author of this software is a real genius. - AAWh

Gravilocity is built on the critically acclaimed iBeams special effects system, which has been used to make iBeams and iBeams HD.
-To make a parameter respond to the microphone press any one of the buttons with a blue arrow on it. A controller window shows up, press mic and the parameter will now respond to the microphone.
Gravilocity was inspired by gravilux, and gravitarium, not to mention all the other particle play apps out there.
Created by Gedalia Pasternak, a Computer Graphics Engineer whose work has been seen in television commercials, video games, and the occasional military training system. As well as in the hands of bored teenagers at art museums.

UI ruins the experience
It's a fantastic idea, and I've had fun playing around with it, but the settings/controls are just awful. I'm still not sure what "comet" or "echo" settings do. The way the menu is split up is very unintuitive and messy. The worst part is that the Retina display is not fully utilized - the stars always show up fuzzy rather than clear points. Another thing is that the music controls are really bad. It is a visualizer, so you are more than likely going to be playing music while using this app. You will be sorely disappointed by the controls and and ability of the music to affect the visuals. There are a ton of settings and things to try, so maybe I just haven't mastered it yet, but as of right now, I regret the money spent on this app. I will update this review if I like the app more, or if it gets updated.
The best visualizer ever!
I tell you, whoever developed this app is the psychedelic visualizer master. With just a few adjustments to the many parameters I was able to create mind bending live psychedelic images that normally would have only been available as a still image from a professional psychedelic artist. This app is worth every penny of that $1.99 that I spent for it and if you really love psychedelic visuals then you will love this app
Best psychedelic app in entire App Store!!!
I enjoyed this app better than any other I've found so far, and great for wallpapers. old bear
