Thicket [iPad, iPhone]

Featured in our “Must have iPad Apps” but never got a post of it’s own, Thicket is now version 2 and with that it’s own feature on CAN. In case you missed it, Thicket is an audiovisual app created by Joshue Ott and Morgan Packard. It is also a world of texture, movement, line and tone. Thicket is part toy, part wind chime, part spiderweb. The app is now also on sale for $0.99 – to celebrate the new release (normal price $2.99).

If you like snowflakes, chaos, fire, and music without words, there’s a good chance you’ll love Thicket. It’s wonderful + visual joy guaranteed!

What’s new in ver 2:
-completely new mode system: simply tilt your device to change modes.
-two brand new modes.
-5 different modes total!
-added more information to the info screen
-new ultra smooth VGA out mode (non-mirrored)

Also, Thicket is a side project of intervalstudios, a collective Joshue Ott and Morgan Packard. Joshue’s also known for his SuperDraw app, while Morgan composes and performs with his own SuperCollider application called Ripple. You can hear his music here. (edit 09/11/2010)

      Also a correction: SuperDraw is Joshue’s software. Morgan composes and performs with his own SuperCollider application called Ripple. You can hear his music here: http://anticipaterecordings.com/releases/ANT_011/index.php

      love the visual but can’t get the sound to work; any suggestions?  Also, sound works on some apps and not on others, including Thicket
