The Orb and David Gilmour Present METALLIC SPHERES

I'm a fan of the Orb but as much as I love their music, this app is far too limited for more than a few minutes of tapping the screen and wiping it with your finger like you are trying to get a booger off the screen... About two minutes of this you suddenly realize two things. That's _all_ it does and it would be far more fascinating if the user were stoned. In fact, the slow pacing and very limited interaction seems specifically designed with that in mind. Even so, there are scads of free apps that have considerably more interactivity and are more fun to play, inebriated or not, allowing those of us who don't enjoy stonishness to enjoy them as well. Now, if this app handed out candies and munchies, it would be unstoppable..
Bet this didn't pass by Gilmour and Patterson's scrutiny
IMHO, honestly, this is a waste of time to purchase, and even toy with, if you're looking for something truly creative to use for sound; it's more a cheap-shot Wal-Fart attempt at marketing. It has seriously limited sonic scope, and the interface is somewhat slick but barely fun. In essence, big thumbs down to whomever David and Dr. Alex delegated to author this mediocrity (read as crap). Better to pay the extra bucks for Björk's Biophilia; much, much more interesting, and educational, too.
Why do I have to pay to get a promotional for a CD?
This app is a complete joke. The amount of interaction you can have with it is minimal at best. I would understand if Sony would give these for free as promotionals for upcoming CDs, but even then, I'd rather wait for the finished product. I feel really stupid that I actually spent money for this.
