App Hall of Fame Inductee Koi Pond
by The Blimp PilotsInducted into the App Hall of Fame on March, 2011
Originally released 2008-07-31
Not currently available in the iTunes app store.
One of the original viral hits on the iPhone and iPod Touch.
Clear your mind.
Imagine gazing into a pond of crystal clear water.
Picture bright, playful koi swimming through its shallow depths.
So close... Can you touch them?
You run your fingers across the cool surface of the pond.
Water ripples away from your touch.
The koi, disturbed, dart away.
Only to quickly forget and swim close to you once more...
Now imagine all this on your iPhone or iPod touch!
