Very good app
The app itself is very good and works fine and fluid, but the user can't make the script like in Algodoo for PC/Mac. Well, the user interface is the same and also works perfectly. The configurations also don't work well. When the app crashes (which is not unusual because of the liberty that the app gives to the user) all the configurations are reset and this is not good. Going back to the script, it gives the user a large variety of options to do his scene the way he likes it. The option to use a bluetooth keyboard as a controller is also very good.
The frustration continues...
This app crashes every 3-5 minutes on my ipad3. It's quite ridiculous how many bugs this app contains. At first I thought maybe it was my ipad running too many apps at one time but after closing everything, and then using it for days still with only this app running, it's crash after crash. So I do what I think the best thing to do besides write a bad review. I would much ALWAYS contact the developer with an issue than to just leave a bad review. But after trying to find an email address to contact the developer, and then being directed to a forum where I had to register just to ask a question, it has forced me to do nothing other than leave a bad review. Fix this garbage and it the review will be better.
Worth to play
I'll give 20 stars if I could. I've heard some people complained this app always crashes and exit immediately. I have a "poor" solution. Open "Guided Access" and apply it to Algodoo....
Except this, this is a wonderful app. Good for playing, better for education.
