**Rated Top Application and #1/top ten in many countries.**
Touch the screen of Antograph and you release a stream of ants from your fingertips. They follow your movements because you’ve also released invisible chemical trails that tell them where to go. Still, the ants often lose their way and wander across the screen. Antograph is a combination of drawing, animation, art, science, and gaming. It was first released as a work of interactive art by Scott Sona Snibbe that was only available in galleries and museums. Now it’s available as an iPhone and iPad application. Tap the bottom of the screen for a toolbar to change ant size, erase, and share on Facebook and via email.

“Of the millions of apps out there, none quite capitalize on the sheer fun and beauty of interactivity the way that Scott Snibbe’s do.” -- Cool Hunting

Mesmerizing interactive art


Acclaimed interactive artist Scott Snibbe has released three delightful works for iPhone and iPad. Minimal and mesmerizing, your screen becomes a canvas where a touch of the finger releases a flurry of pixels and abstract shapes. In “Antograph,” you draw trails of ants that follow your gestures and march across the screen. “Bubbleharp” suggests pulsating cells under a microscope. “Gravilux” is a shifting star field where your gestures create a gravitational force, modeling physics of the Universe. Each contains custom settings (double tap corners) to unlock surprising new behaviors – be sure to try “heat” on “Gravilux.” And multi-touch allows several users to play / experiment at the same time. Until now, Snibbe’s works have been available only in major art and science museums (including San Francisco’s Museum of Modern Art, California Academy of the Sciences, London Science Museum, and New York’s Whitney Museum of Art).
