iChalky is a fun little toy and interesting thing to watch. The idea is a simple one and well executed. You have a stick figure on the screen -- you can make him walk by turning your iPhone to the side -- he will try to stay walking on all four edges of the screen. You can grab him at points and stretch him, drag him, even throw him up in the air. Responds well to multi-touch -- you can grab him at up to 5 points and pull in opposite directions -- act out your weird torture fantasies you perv. He bounces very nicely, btw.
iChalky also responds to music -- he dances much better than I do -- via the beats he hears over the built in microphone on the iPhone. Fun to just prop up somewhere and watch him dance to whatever music you are playing -- might even make Jack Johnson tolerable. Nah, nothing could do that.
Here's a short video produced by the developer showing you how iChakly moves and give a little explanation behind the physics of it.
iChakly isn't an application that you will use to improve your productivity, but it is a fun little toy priced perfectly at $0.99.
