Koi Pond

By The Blimp Pilots

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.

Description

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!

Lovely app, but lacking...

I found the visuals to be beautiful, as expected, and I like the life-like motions of the koi, especially when snatching up food. It is also fairly relaxing as promised, especially with the sounds provided.

However, I was disappointed as there are SO MANY improvements that can be made:
• It could be improved A LOT if more sounds were added, let's say some ambient music perhaps? Sounds of tropical birds?
• Also, it would be good if the lily pads were a bit more realistic - so they float across the screen more when you move them and can go off screen, also if say maple leaves and cherry blossom petals fell on the water occasionally, it would make the visuals even more intriguing, and would add a Japanese-style feel to it. Another cool feature would be if in dark mode, maybe you could have a torch on your finger that lights up parts of the pond as you move over them?
• Also it would be AWESOME if you could customise the colours, patterns, and size of each koi and also options that allow you to choose exactly how many koi are in the pond. Perhaps an option that allows you to make the koi follow your finger? Or something that controls the movement of the koi. That would be so cool!

Overall, this is a good app, but it has soo much more potential, I would love to see these changes being made, only then it would be worth 5 stars in my opinion.

....and RELAX.... by Golden

Have had this app for a while now and I must say, it's still a beautiful way to relax and also to show off your iPhone! The Xmas pond is fun and makes a quirky change of mood. I particularly liked the seasonal Koi Feed....such attention to detail! Let's not forget the depth of sound...my personal favourite is the thunder with raindrops. When ppl ask me about the iPhone and whether getting one is justified or not, I just whip up the Koi Pond app n let the doubters 'feed' the Koi to the sound of frogs n thunder...they doubt no more, let me tell you! Wonderful! Just had a thought, wouldn't it be lovely to be able to watch the Koi Pond on a plasma telly with HD and be able to listen to the full, rich sounds through a BandW Zeppelin...imagine that. Koi Pond is getting 5stars anyway!

Great app!!!

This is a brilliant app, very therapeutic to run your fingers through the water! The fish are brilliantly animated and react to your movement in the water. If I did have any criticism of this app it would only be that the graphics might be a little bit "washed out" in appearance and could perhaps be a little more contrasty. I'd love to see the option of this automatically come on like a screen saver and have the fishes swim over your icons on the phone! Excellent app though!
