Bestselling Gravilux App Now Available for Android

Scott Snibbe Studio, developer of best selling apps for the iPad including Björk’s Biophilia, has released its first Android App – Gravilux – available now in the Android Marketplace, and the Amazon Appstore for Android, including compatibility with Amazon’s Kindle Fire.


Snibbe’s app, Gravilux, was a runaway hit last year when released on iPad. Now available for Android devices, including Kindle Fire, Gravilux lets people touch a universe of simulated stars beneath their fingertips, exerting gravitational push and pull to twist stars into an infinite variety of colorful new galactic forms.

Scott Snibbe, President of the studio, said: “I’ve always believed that interactivity has the same capacity as cinema to engage people in emotionally meaningful experiences that go beyond the goal-oriented worlds of games. Gravilux is not a game, a utility, or an educational tool, but instead a purely interactive space for wonder, play, and exploration. Bringing Gravilux to Android opens these experiences to a huge new audience.”

Asked about his choice for a two-week exclusive launch with Amazon, Snibbe answered: “Books are one of the last media in which people focus in rapt concentration, and the market for the original Kindles. Amazon’s Kindle Fire has the potential to promote this kind of attention with other forms of media, such as apps and games, and it’s the type of attention we hope to sustain with our uniquely creative, mind-expanding apps. Gravilux gives users new forms of sophisticated, rich interactive content that go beyond the simplicity of games.”

Gravilux for Android is available  through the Android Marketplace and the Amazon Appstore for Android for $1.99.
