The Miracle Modus is a source of hypnotic rainbows and soft bells. I'm autistic, and I wrote this because I wanted something to mitigate sensory overload. I find mathematically-patterned rainbow lights very soothing. After I showed it to a couple of friends and they had similar experiences, I decided to publish it.
The first time you open the app, it will make a bit of noise and draw a bunch of lines, squares, and hexes. Once it's done this it should have a guess as to how fast your device is, and be able to perform decently. This is a little unreliable still; improvements are planned.

"I can stop watching this whenever I want to, I just don't want to right now." -- Magical Princess Lory, webcomic artist
"It changed my life and perception. Whether it was for the best remains to be seen." -- brightwave, app developer
"I was so overloaded my face went numb and I couldn't get up off the couch, so he showed me the app and said to give it a try, and I felt relaxed for the first time in days. If you are stuck on the couch whimpering, try to slide this app under your prostrate face as soon as possible." -- Luka D., webcomic artist
"It's so cool I can't even look at it." - Lerg, app developer
Watch the pretty lights. Want different pretty lights? Tap in any corner, then tap the arrows to change modes. Most modes are at least a little interactive, but sometimes it is pretty subtle. After you've explored a bit, you may find you prefer some modes, or don't like some of them. We've thought of that!
Tap in any corner, then tap on the gear to bring up the settings page. This allows you to change (or disable) the sounds, enable or disable modes so you only see your favorites, or re-run the benchmark phase if you think it got bogus results.
See the support page. Feel free to email suggestions for display modes you'd like to see, as I enjoy writing new display modes. If you wish to report the app being slow or erratic, be sure to tell me what device you've got, and what it's doing.
Performance is not as reliable as I'd like.
The app is free. It used to have a donation feature, but it wasn't worth the effort of maintaining.
ABOUT THE NAME:
The name "Miracle Modus" is used by kind permission of Andrew Hussie. It is a reference to a device in his webcomic "Homestuck".
* Fixed memory leak
* Removed donation functionality, app is just plain free.
Ratings and Reviews
great app, but...
as another reviewer said, this app is awesome, but it needs some bug fixes. I'm running it on an up to date iPhone 6, and it doesn't seem to be responding to any touch controls. It's stuck on the spiral mode no matter what I do, and it doesn't seem to be letting me interact with it. it's just doing its own thing. it is still very soothing and great for stimming and cooling off after a meltdown, but I'd like it a lot better if I could access all of its functions!!
It still works! Read this!
The problem is that the app was for older devices where the screens were shorter, so you just have to tap like an inch under the real corner and the gear and everything will still show up!!!
This seems like a great app, but it doesn't work well on my device (iPhone 6). I can't figure out how to change the mode, and the spiral doesn't seem interactive at all. The description said to touch a corner to access modes and settings, but that doesn't do anything for mine. Probably just needs some bug fixes.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
