Koi Pond

By The Blimp Pilots

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Clear your mind.

Imagine gazing into a pond of crystal clear water.
Picture bright, playful koi swimming through its shallow depths.
So close... Can you touch them?

You run your fingers across the cool surface of the pond.
Water ripples away from your touch.
The koi, disturbed, dart away.
Only to quickly forget and swim close to you once more...

Now imagine all this on your iPhone or iPod touch!

An okay app

Back when the iPhone/iPod Touch first received the capability of the app store in mid-2008, this was one of the first apps to hit. It has since been updated with new features and polished more, but it hasn't lost the essence of what it is. I commend the development team for this. That said, I have to emphasize that this was more or less a technology demo when it first released and remains so today. More than a year after the app store was released, and 100,000 apps later (as of this writing), it doesn't really seem to appeal. Far too many apps utilize this technology, and then some, to actually do something productive or entertaining. They have a purpose. This app, sticking to its roots by not having such a purpose, is now pushed to the side. Sure, one could argue that its purpose is to offer relaxing music and serene visuals. Perhaps I just don't "get it" anymore, but I really don't see the need to keep this app any longer on my iPhone. Three stars for being an excellent tech demo when it was first released, but not four or five because it has lost itself in the multitude of apps now that have taken its technology to levels beyond.


Update!!! New fish and the ability to sleep timer!!! These guys listen to customers and update often, so you can look forward to this improving :) new tile background nice two new fish cute but add ability to add photos from library as background and auto screen lock, so it doesnt go to sleep when im using :D good work guys
I always have hard times goin to sleep, but turning on rain and putting on earphones and waiding with my fingers always do the trick. The most realistic sounds ever, so if the graphics lacked which it doesnt, id still give it five for the sound. Then again, graphics for water ripples and physics for water ripples are beyond my expectations. The fish nibblin your finger if u stay still aint much, but watching them swim away from ur splashing is great. Fish Animation and graphics are top noch, almost real. Still, the sound of the storm is the best. So keep the updates comin, and this is a MUST own for any ipod t/phone owner out there. Happy wadin ;)
And maybe a sugges, adjust fish size option:D

A worthwhile waste of 99 cents

Is it cool? Very. Does it make great use of the iPhone and it's beautiful screen and touch ssupport? Yep. Is it still a waste of 99 cents? Without question. But... it's a good waste of 99 cents. I guess my only complaint is that there are other 99 cent apps out there that have a lot more to them than this, but really, I suppose that is a compaint of the other developers not charging enough, and this app being priced just right. It is pretty amazing, well-written, and very very polished. Looks great, and is impressive to show your friends what they wish their phone/MP3 player could do. I just wish there was a little bit more to it. But if you are considering purchasing it, you know exactly what you are getting already. A fantastic app that simply will keep you entertained for an average of 15 seconds at a time... several times a day. Besides, I spent more on a pack of M&M's this morning, and that wasn't even close to being as entertaining as this. :-)
