Customer Reviews

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.

This is one of my best visualizers on my iPad air. It also looks great in air play with my 42 inch HDTV. It would be even more awesome if the sheep could display in full retina resolution. But even in lower resolution it looks pretty good. It would also be nicer if this app had access to the iOS microphone to make the sheep dance in time to your music. I tend to play a lot of ambient style music that has the illusion of the sheep moving in time to the music. There is not an option to vote for sheep. In order to vote you would need to download the client software for a desktop or laptop PC or Mac.


I really love this app. It's got some incredible images! I know you have to purchase more "sheep"...Why "sheep" anyway? Weird.

Anyway, I wanted to give an even lower rating for one reason. The ONLY way to stop motion is by a press and hold with one finger. That's ok BUT...this is my main complaint... I would like to be able to take a screen shot. I can't because when I stop the motion (even with a finger near the top button), the image becomes VERY blurry.

Let us take screen shots and I'll buy more "sheep"... More designs because they really are VERY awesome!

"External video" is misleading

It says you can output it to an external video device, but that requires Airplay, not TV out. Not a good solution and the description does NOT make that clear. Plus, for what it is it takes up a huge amount of space. And did these things really take so long to compute? I guess that's what you get when artists do their own coding. I'm sorry but I'm not all that impressed. Some good eye candy but not worth all the resources they're throwing at it.
