It's great but...
I have to admit it's a really nice Aquarium app, one of the nicest I've seen with the picture quality of the fish and scenery as well as the beautiful calming music. However, there are a few things that needs work. While I love the options of different secenery selections, the "repeat" clips are way too short and WAY too obvious. When that happens, the whole aquarium stops (or freezes) and the fish disappear for a second and the same type of fish re-appear in another part of the tank then start moving again. Not to mention that when the fish scenes "reboot" at the very beginning, for a split second, it looks like someone pushed the fast-forward button and everything (fish..etc.) has sped up, but things then turn normal again.
There are many other apps out there that do the "repeat" thing, and I get that, but they're done so well that you can't really tell; especially at a distance (so I know it can be done). Not with this app, I can have my ipad across the room and can easily tell that the scenery has repeated. For the picture quality on this app of this level, you'd think that they would have spent a little more time when it came to rebooting. So this desperately needs work!!!
Too add, along with the music, can we have the option of hearing the classic Aquarium bubbles? This will be a nice added touch.
If some of the requests the others and I have mentioned, I'll reconsider the star rating. ;)
Awesome app--5 stars
The images and music are mesmerizing. I fired up the app intending to check it out briefly and found myself clicking and exploring my way around this beautiful aquarium much longer than I anticipated. The music really enhances the visual experience rather than detracting from it. It loaded smoothly and operates seamlessly on my phone. I can't wait to be stuck in a waiting room so I can once again experience the relaxation that I just enjoyed. Great app!!! Very pleased!!! (and it's less than a dollar!) My cat even watches the fish with me--he rates it 5 stars, too.
Better than drugs!!!!
This app is like having a sedative on your ipad/iphone -- without the side effects or costs. Frustrated by the world? Stuck on a inane phone call? Had a long day? A minute of its soothing underwater images and beautiful music will recalibrate you. I've even muted my phone line during dreaded work conference calls and played this app to keep me from losing my mind. It works!
