★★★★★Totally Awesome.... Running on an iPad this is seriously psychedelic. I have tried every other visualiser on the iPad and apart from it's bigger brother I-beams this eats them all for breakfast. I have said it before but the author of this software is a real genius. - AAWh

Gravilocity is built on the critically acclaimed iBeams special effects system, which has been used to make iBeams and iBeams HD.

[HINTS]
-To make a parameter respond to the microphone press any one of the buttons with a blue arrow on it. A controller window shows up, press mic and the parameter will now respond to the microphone.

Gravilocity was inspired by gravilux, and gravitarium, not to mention all the other particle play apps out there.

Created by Gedalia Pasternak, a Computer Graphics Engineer whose work has been seen in television commercials, video games, and the occasional military training system. As well as in the hands of bored teenagers at art museums.

 $1.99 in iOS App Store

Version 1.2

-Fixed hard crash on 2nd Generation iPod touches, I hope. We apologize for the frustration and the inconvenience. Boot times are still a bit slow but then it appears to be working, at least on our testing devices. We're not sure what else we can do. I'll contact apple's tech support if there's no sign of improvement soon.

-PLEASE rate the app positively if it's now working for you.

Known issues:
Picking the camera as the background image source will only work once. To be fixed in the next update.
Connected star mode is still pretty slow on older devices.
