"Apps like Gravilux awaken an 'Avatar'-like sensitivity to electricity in the body, power in the palms and general connectedness." - New York Times
"Of the millions of apps out there, none quite capitalize on the sheer fun and beauty of interactivity the way that Scott Snibbe’s do.” —CoolHunting
"Every once in a while, an app will come along that has no practical application whatsoever but is just SO COOL that you have to have it! Gravilux is that sort of app." —iphoneapplicationlist

Gravilux lets you touch the stars: it’s a particle simulator and music visualizer that lets you use gravity to interact with simulated starts beneath your fingertips: a combination of art, meditation, relaxation, and zen animation.

You can tease and twist the particles into galaxies or explode them like a supernova. You can color the stars by speed, and make them dance with a music visualizer. You can change parameters including gravity, antigravity, color, and the size of your galaxy, and make gravitational text and typography. Multiple fingers and multiple people can touch the screen at once. Gravilux was first created as a work of interactive art by Scott Snibbe available only in galleries and museums until it became a best-selling #1 app on iOS.
