Inflate and pop vibrantly colored balloons in this simple, yet highly entertaining app. The realistic, balloon-like motions and sounds are fun for all ages.
The simplicity, consistency, predictability, and relaxation factor of this app has proven to be very enjoyable for autistic children. The multi-touch tracking and reliability of performance in this app make it great for children with autism.
Watch your balloons inflate as you press your fingers to the screen. When they reach the size you like, let go watch them float up.
Shake your device to switch from day to night, or night to day!
While your balloons are inflating, drag them around the screen and watch them move other balloons out of their way.
Tilt your device in any direction and watch your balloons rotate and float up against gravity. Watch your balloons bounce off of the sides of the screen and off of each other.
Touch your balloons to pop them after they have been let go. The bigger the balloon, the bigger the pop. The bigger they pop, the more they'll move your other balloons.
Your balloons can't be popped right away after you release them - this allows you to make a steady stream of balloons fly from your fingers as you quickly tap away at the screen. You can pop them after they are about a half-second old.
Use multiple fingers to create multiple balloons at once, pop multiple balloons at once, drag them around at once, or pop one and create one at the same time.
Little kids love to occupy themselves playing with this app. BalloonMaker's multi-touch capability allows them to touch the screen while they hold the iPhone or iPod with one hand, and still create and pop balloons with the other.
Older kids and adults also enjoy relaxing to the endless balloons that they can create and pop.
Now pop to it!
Bug fix - never freezes up now! Now you can shake to change the background! More colors, and even more balloons allowed on the screen! Now tracks 10 simultaneous touches! Improved speed, audio, and physics! If you like the update, please rate this app 5 stars.

Worth it's weight in gold! Fabulous cause & effect app.
A current fave at OMazing Kids... this cause & effect app is worth it's weight in gold! I have a young patient with an extremely short attention span (usually under 5 seconds) who usually just mouths and throws toys. I created choices on the GoTalk Now AAC app and within one session he activated "iPad" several times to get to play this app. He maintained sustained joint attention to it for over 5 minutes at a time and vocalized more than I've ever heard in a session (pop, bubble, bi (big), ge ih (get it) & yeah). His mom was so excited she videoed a bit of it on her phone.
I was initially leery since the app hasn't been updated since 2011. Usually not a good sign. Since it was only $.99, I decided to buy it. It works fine on my iPad running iOS 8.4 and on my iPad Mini that I just updated to iOS 9.3. Best $.99 I've ever spent :)

Instant fun for little kids
This simple app is instant fun for a small child who is bored or unhappy. Watch out - you may not be able to get your iOS device back!
It could be even better...
If there were different balloon shapes/more balloons could fit on the screen at once but my kids love it all the same
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
