Life Flow for iPad

Life Flow for iPad



Life Flow is an interactive art work based on John Conway's famous Game of Life, which is a simulation of cells living and dying in a square grid according to simple rules.

What makes this app different is that each cell has a colour based on its position and age, a fluid trace of which is left behind when it expires. Drag your fingers through the fluid to swirl them into spectacular patterns, or just sit back and watch Life unfold!

Life Flow lets you manually edit and step through cell patterns, and contains a library of over 600 predefined configurations, each able to generate an endless number of unique dynamic art pieces with your help.

Needs improvement

I love the gigantic pattern library, but this app is just too slow to be usable. At this glacial rate of speed, who's going to watch more than 20 or 30 generations? Give me an option to turn off the fluid, jack up the speed, and then this'll be an app worth owning. As it is, I wish I had spent my 99 cents elsewhere.

4/5 stars

Great but lag

I am using a 16GB wifi iPad and the overall app works great however the using your fingers to smear the fluid in the background is extremely laggy maybe 5fps :( the only thing i would request is a fix for this lag then this app would be perfect. Thanks and I'm looking forward to some updates.

Excellent interpretation of Conway's Life

Revised my rating from 5 stars to 1 star for slow action by the developer to investigate the apparent incompatibility with iOS 4.
What the other posters I don't think realize is the amount of number crunching this app has to do for what they are seeing or really understand what they have. I'll gladly take the lag to see the incredible level of detail this app provides. For this app to track the age of and color each pixel to the corresponding color, the life calculations, the motion calculations, etc., I'm impressed it's as fast as it is all things considered.

My only problem is that once I upgraded to iOS 4.2.1 on my iPad it no longer runs. Crashes after the boiler plate displays. I've reset the device, deleted and reinstalled both via iTunes and by a fresh download from the Apps Store and no change. I've am waiting a reply from the developer otherwise I think this is an excellent interpretation of Conway's Life sim.
