Heat Sense is a fun and entertaining app to brighten up your phone. Heat Sense mimics the heat produced by your fingers as you draw to create colourful patterns!

* Over 25 different colour palettes for different visual effects
* 66 different preset images to start your designs
* Turn your fingers into 66 different stamps to start your designs. Kids will love this!
* Use the Doppelgänger, Mirror or Kaleidoscope effects to make symmetric, eye-catching patterns
* Take snapshots to save your artwork to the photo library to use as wallpaper

To draw without everything fading away, set the decay rate to zero (tortoise).

Heat Sense simulates the diffusion equation, which is a realistic representation of the dissipation of the heat generated by your fingers as you move them across the screen. Moving your fingers quickly generates more heat than moving them slowly. Try it!

★★★★★ User reviews:
“There's just something relaxing and mesmerising about this app, I would strongly recommend it to anyone.”

“I found this app really fun and VERY addictive. There are so many different colours to choose from. My favourite thing about this app is the kaleidoscope tool which makes it even more fun.”

Love This 


I am only 17 and have servere OCD, which can make my life a living nightmare. For example: i will see a certain object that i feel i must move, a certain number of times or else something awful will happen to my family. Another example: i HATE germs, with this i have to scrub my entire body with antibacterial soap, if the slightest thing touches me, even my mum cannot hug me or i go crazy. Theres more to my OCD, but i am here to review this app, not to tell my life story. The reason i tell you all this is because i want you to know how muxh this app has helped me. This app is so relaxing and theraputic, that when i get angry or anxious with my obbsessions, my parents tell me to go on this app to calm me down... It works! No, it doesnt cure my ocd, but when im on it, it makes me forget about what i was worrying about... For me this app is amazing. 
