App Description

Sand Pictures creates beautiful landscapes from falling sand and rising bubbles. It is just like the sand picture frames in the real world, except on iPad you can interact!

Sand Pictures offers a highly realistic simulation of falling sand, with nearly 100,000 individual particles, all responding to gravity and collisions. The darker grains fall faster than the lighter ones, creating layers in the sand which results in magical works of art.

Push grains of sand around with your finger, or pop bubbles with a tap. Hold your finger in one spot to add more bubbles.

Changing between the 20 beautiful background images is as simple as a two finger swipe to the right or left. Or choose your own image from your photo library. You can also change the color of the sand through over 50 built in color gradients by dragging with two fingers up and down.

You can turn iPad any way you like and the sand will fall in different directions. Turning iPad over flips gravity, creating a new picture. Or tap the rotate button to let Sand Pictures flip the image for you.

You can also save the landscapes you create to your photo library, and post them straight to Twitter or Facebook with just a couple of taps.
