Feeling a tad stressed? Need a little more artistic beauty in your life? Gravilux is a gorgeous, very Zen-like app for Android that will both entertain and soothe you whenever you use it.

Reach for the Stars

Gravilux lets you touch a universe of simulated stars beneath your fingertips, exerting a gravitation-like force to twist them into an infinite variety of colorful new galactic forms. Just launch the app and start moving your finger across the screen. The stars will react, moving in slow waves and forming amazing shapes and fascinating effects. As these pinpoints of light float across the screen of your smartphone or Kindle Fire, you'll be overcome with sense of peace and serenity.

Interactive Art Comes to Your Android

Gravilux combines elements of painting, animation, art, science, and gaming. Before it became a mobile app, this kind of interactive art was only found in galleries and museums. Now it's right on your Android, available to you anytime and anywhere.

Control the Universe

The app gives you many options to tune to your liking. Start out by selecting classic black and white or vibrant color. In the color setting, you have a veritable rainbow of shades from which to choose.

Hit the Settings button and you can choose an attract or repel effect, adjust the brightness, determine the spacing of the stars, and more. You can also touch the Optimize option and Gravilux will adjust itself to your particular device. The app is specifically designed for your Amazon Kindle Fire, so you'll enjoy an incredible experience with Gravilux on that device.

Hugely popular as an iPad app, Gravilux was created by Scott Snibbe Studio, a leader in the development of digital applications. You'll want to reserve a prominent space on your home screen for this enchanting work of art for your Android.

What They're Saying About Gravilux

"Every once in a while, an app will come along that has no practical application whatsoever but is just SO COOL that you have to have it! Gravilux is that sort of app." - iphoneapplicationlist.com

"Of the millions of apps out there, none quite capitalize on the sheer fun and beauty of interactivity the way that Scott Snibbe's do." - Cool Hunting

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks great on the kindle fire February 2, 2012
Verified Purchase
An app that is relaxing and works well on the KF - especially in color. I do like the demo being in video format, rather than photos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whatever you want it to be February 2, 2012

Mindless swirling, quick tinkering with the settings, or a precise calibration of size, colour, gravity, and space...whichever way you decide, it produces beautiful images across the screen. HTC Evo 4G.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works really well on Kindle Fire! February 2, 2012
Finally we get a FAotD that's not geared towards kids.This app is definitely worth the download, especially with its small size. Very cool, and satisfies the astrophysicist within me.

4.0 out of 5 stars why isn't this a live wallpaper? February 2, 2012
Verified Purchase
I would glady sacrifice my battery life for this cool app!!! That is, if it were a live wallpaper. even though it's the free app of the day and nice to play with....I can't see myself passing with it any longer than 2 mins. I'm sure a lot went into this app but I think it would be cooler if it were a live wallpaper

4.0 out of 5 stars Love it, but menu is glitchy November 11, 2012
By WS
Verified Purchase
This app is addictive and relaxing. Only issue is that the menu is glitchy. At times, only the color menu is available. At others, the main settings menu is available, but freezes. Sometimes the main menu opens, but the color option isn't on it. It's a minor issue though, because there's. no real point to the game anyway. It's just a relaxing way to kill time, and it does that regardless of the specific mode it's in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not worth cash but entertaining when free.
I can spend hours playing with this simple, pointless little thing. Not worth cash because you can make it yourself with an afternoon of free time, but I got it free.
