Ions was selected by Apple as a New and Noteworthy app in February and was the #1 Entertainment app for nearly a week! Ions was then selected as a Staff Favorite in March!

Control up to 20,000 particles of light! Ions is an addictive virtual sandbox where you can create dazzling patterns in realtime. Ions runs at 60 fps and really shows off the power of the iPad. There are infinite creative possibilities with Ions - you won't be able to put it down!

Use your fingers to either paint with ions or interact with them. Place emitters to control where new ions are created and their initial speeds and directions. Then use fields to either attract or repel ions, altering their velocities.

Accelerometer support allows the ions to respond to gravity. You also have five different looks to choose from; each one completely changes the appearance of the ions. Additionally, you can save and load your favorite layouts at any time.

What's New in Version 1.2

Bug fixes. Higher resolution artwork.

Cooler than it looks

This is a cool app. Shows beauty on iPad if you get the emitters to go slowly and have force against the dust. Very fun, and keeps me entertained. Can also make many shapes, and all sorts of cool designs if you play around long enough and figure out how. I recommend this app. It's fun!
