Happy Halloween, and have a look at Zio which I’ve finally ‘finished’. It’s just about to go to the beta testers, and then I’ll double check everything once more, build in the in-app purchase function to unlock the full program (it will come as a free app with a couple of presets for playback only), and then submit it to the App Store next week. It will be for iPhone and iPod touch OS 3.0 and later, and will be around $5 to buy.
Below is the instruction guide which will be in a scrollable window, so forgive the long jpeg.

My iPhone application Zio is near completion and I should have a Beta ready for next week.
I was planning on using ibetatest.com, but thought I’d throw out the line here to see if anyone would be interested in helping me. The app needs tested on all devices, iPod touch, iPhone 3G, 3GS etc, and played with a lot for any bugs or suggestions on improvements, and everything possible to help get it past the Apple review process.
If you’re interested either drop me a line or goto the Zio forum I’ve specially created for Beta testing and register there. Once the Beta is ready you’ll receive further instructions on how to obtain an ad hoc version.
The forum will also be home to users of Zio to talk and discuss about the program and create their own galleries of Zio art.
So hopefully if I can get a few testers I wont need to use ibetatest.com, and in return I can give you a free version of the app, a credit, and hopefully work together again on any future projects I might have.

Some demo screens from my upcoming iPhone application, Zio.
The graphic/algorithmic engine is finished, and now has particle motion.
I’m in the middle of rebuilding the interface before moving onto audio reaction. Unfortunately there’s no way of ‘listening’ to audio coming from your iPhone – this is a restriction Apple has placed on the device. So audio reaction will have to be based on music/audio playing in your room or nearby. I haven’t done any tests yet but hopefully it should be workable. However, this just a gimmicky thing in my opinion, Zio is primarily an interactive, meditative art program, which can be viewed with any kind of music whether it’s in literal sync to the amplitudes of the audio or not.
Overall I’m only a couple of weeks away from completion, then it will go for beta testing before finally being submitted to the app store, which might take another week or so. I’m hoping to have it all done and available for download by end of October.
