Inspired by the loophole in the rendering stage of openGL, Musophobia for the iPhone is an application that allows you to draw using a particle cluster of brushes.
Instead of a single brush like you would expect in other drawing applications, you wield up to 999 particle-brushes at once. Instead of using the brushes as you would expect traditionally, you instead merely interact with them: set them in motion on different trajectories, force them to fall, orbit on random centers, spin around the point of touch, collapse into a cluster or, simply, disturb by touching them. Particles can be modified to create different effects. Musophobia includes many options including changing particle size, color, recovery speed and interaciton sensitive options such as hue change speed or spin radius.
As the author points out, Musophobia was never meant to be a user-friendly application:
MusophobiaÂ takes away the full control of the users and reduces them to one of many parameters those bring life to the particles. In order to create, it forces you to cooperate. Musophobia is hard to master and most likely to frustrate.
A great new addition to the particle effect apps we review on CAN. What makes this app quite unique is the results you can achieve. From even the most traditional drawings to very complex particle compositions.
