Fluid is a nice calming app, that is simulated water play with a full set of customizable features. You can use the preselected river rocks, or use a picture of your liking from the camera roll. Music is easy to select from your iPad/iPhone music tab (I used iTunes radio) or the environmental music that comes with the app. It would be fun to use this with a picture of the child I am working with so they can view themselves or use the app as a precursor for sensory sensitive kids before real media play. One nifty feature is to throw a coin in the pool to make a wish, and you never know, it may come true!
It does what it says!
For all of you who are disappointed with the app.. What did you expect?😒
First of all, it's free. And it isn't necessarily for entertainment purposes. I think it's a lovely app. 😊 It is really relaxing. And I 💙 that you can put whatever picture you want.
I would say that the cons are:
1. Same music, no choices to change. Does turn on and off, however. 🎶
2. Ripples could be a little bit more exaggerated and could ripple when shaken?👋
3. Also the option menu comes up with you press all five fingers on the screen a. That is sometimes hard to fit all 5 b. that's what makes the ripples fun. It should be a double tap or something.👆
However, it is relaxing. Fun to play with. More settings would be nice. But its FREE.. Does EXACTLY what it says! Download it if you choose!😄
Update: So calming. I actually open this app often enough to keep it on my device permanently.
This app is strangely zen. The only thing is there seems to be a yellow "graph paper" effect when you drag your finger over the pool in long strokes. But this app is amazing. The effects are marvelous and calming.
