Life is an application to experiment with the wonderfully entertaining Conway's Game of Life.
The Game of Life is a deceptively simple game published by the British mathematician John Horton Conway in 1970.
Just drag your fingers over the screen to start and guide the Game of Life on your screen as the pattern evolves. Completely configurable including algorithm, color schemes, speed, size and several other parameters for presentation.
• Supports multitouch to create and guide the algorithm.
• Many predefined alternative algorithms and also complete freedom to configure any algorithm giving over 200 000 different combinations.
• Pause, resume, save and restore special life patterns.
• Change speed and size of generations.
• Support 8-way, 6-way or 4-way connections for algorithms.
• Customize color palette with several predefined themes and a custom color picker.
• Touch brush editor with many predefined well known predefined patterns.
• Highly optimized and can handle cell size down to 1 pixel very well.
• Unified binary support for iPad & iPhone devices.
What's New in Version 3.0.1
Fixed to work on retina display. Also improved performance on newer devices.
Good app, needs update
I have enjoyed this app for a long time. Faithful reproduction of Conway's Life and other derivatives. Very relaxing. I use it to fall asleep. Some problems with the latest IOS a release. Please debug! Cannot reset the board and pop up window is blank.
Please update this!!!
Great app. But please fix it so it runs on the current OS. It is broken and not usable.
(And could the Apple folks please remember that "backward compatibility" is crucial to us!)
Desperately Seeking Update
This is a fine rendition of Conway's classic life cellular automaton with many configurable parameters. Or at least is was until an iOS update rendered it useless.
I hope the devs will update it soon but that seems unlikely now due to how long it has been broken.
I'll give it 5 stars if/when it is restored to its original glory.
