Particles - An Interactive Particle System
By String Theory Software
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Particles is an interactive particle system - a field of dots that are attracted to your touch. All the rules of physics, such as momentum and friction, apply. To use, simply touch the field of dots and they will accelerate towards your finger. Depending on how you touch it, you can create a literally infinite number of beautiful patterns.
***** UPDATE *****
You asked, we listened - you now have full control over the number of particles, as well as gravity and friction, as well as the ability to invert gravity (particles are repelled by your finger). Also, Particles now supports multi-touch, so you can interact with it in more ways!
Please note that Particles is designed to run on iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch generations 3 and 4 and iPad. Due to the nature of the animations in Particles, Particles may run poorly on earlier devices.
What's New in Version 3.0
This new update contains many new and exciting features, including multitouch and total control over the environment. A full features list is included below:
+ Control over particle count, gravity and friction.
+ Invert gravity - now you can repel the particles as well.
+ All settings are now saved when you close the app.
+ Because you can lower the particle count, Particles now runs better on iPhone 3G and earlier iPod touches.
+ Added one new color scheme.
+ Various efficiency improvements.
Please note that this multitouch edition Particles may run more slowly on pre-iPhone 4 devices. To remedy this, simply slide the 'particle density' slider down.
Ads on screen ruin effect of APP
The ads on the screen ruin the effect of the particles in motion. They weren't there at first, and watching the screen was actually relaxing. However the ad banner across the top of the screen is aggravating and really ruins the effect of the APP.
There was no warning in the APP description about the ads and imposing ads on the buyer is not fair, for what is an otherwise good app.
Absolutely fascinating! The patterns and movements are beautiful, and the only thing that I would add is the ability to save a picture or clip of the motion. Otherwise, it's perfect (and addictive)!
Fun, but too many ads
This would be a pretty nice app if it weren't for the ads, which apparently can't be removed. Developers need to learn that USERS DON'T LIKE ADS. When looking for a means to monetize an app, ads should not be an option. Charge a buck or two to finance your project instead.
