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.
