What's New in Version 1.2
-Fixed bug for some users with no sound
-Increased code efficiency
To be honest, I wrote an entire review ranting about the strings not being slack, until I discovered the gravity lock. Now it's cool.
One thing thing I enjoy about this is is that you can turn the iPhone upside down and the balls fall off the screen. Turn the iPhone upright and they come back on screen tangled up. The slackness in the strings sets this app apart from the others.
What it doesn't have that other apps do: balls and backgrounds that can be edited with our camera and camera roll.
For two bucks, there should be many more features. Add a pause button. But the slack strings makes this app worth it.
Oh, and, It's really NOT a game. No offense to the DEVS, but I don't plan on announcing on Facebook how many times my marbles bounced off each other. It's not an accomplishment I really wish on bragging about.
Is it worth $2? I don't know. I was bored.
