Ever heard of the butterfly effect? Perhaps it helps to think of butterflies when exploring the myriad potential visual forms embedded in the chaotic universe of this generative artwork. The slightest touch of the screen (or flap of a butterfly's wings) can lead - tantalisingly intuitively - to seismic shifts in the nature of the images your fingers will conjure.

* Exquisite, fast, retina graphics
* Fluid, tactile controls
* Entrancingly addictive
* Surprisingly deep and complex variations
* Intuitive window on the inherent beauty of mathematics

What's New in Version 1.1

Mostly a compatibility build for new iOS versions, also runs in higher internal resolution on newer devices (which in turn means saved images will be higher resolution as well). Hopefully still a good balance of resolution and speed for all generations of iPad.

Many thanks to all users and especially those who left reviews on the app store - always brightens my day. I hope to have some new stuff for you in the nearish future.

Customer Reviews

Hypnotic magic now available for iOS 11

Update 2017: Delighted that the developer brought this old favorite up to iOS 11 compatibility! Everything in my previous review still stands. Veteran users, be aware that the higher resolution may take a little getting used to. The visuals play out somewhat differently. I also had some problem with the Share button at first, but it seems to be working now. Guess I just needed more patience (running on an iPad Air, which occasionally hits a patch of sludge in iOS 11).

At the top of my wish list: a super slo-mo option. Some of the transitions disappear so quickly!

Original review: Mesmerizing imagery and movement. So glad the creator chose to show off the beauty of black and white. Simple yet perfect; I want to save every screen. The only thing missing is more information about the process behind the effects.
