Aquarium – Turn your iPhone into an Aquarium

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

Aquarium Aquarium is an application that will turn your iPhone or iPod Touch into an “aquarium.” When you install the app, it will be added into WinterBoard where it can then be activated/deactivated. If you activate the application, it will add a wallpaper to your iPhone that looks like the bottom of the Ocean. It will also add little swimming fish behind your icons on your SpringBoard. The fish are a little glitchy in their movement but, the app does not seem to affect the actual performance of the iPhone. This little application is available through the Ranbee source.

Koi Pond 2.0

Available In: App Store       Price: $0.99  

Koi PondI used to have a pond at my old business and I loved it. Customers always loved feeding the Koi and letting them bite their fingers. I would work on it a lot, changing the plants and waterfalls and collecting different Koi. This application has lots of these features, on an iPhone of course.

The graphics are done well and there a lots of features and choices. First, you can touch the water and it will ripple in response. The fish will also swim away. You can shake the iPhone and it will feed the Koi. Then they will come out and eat up the food. There are also sound effects, done nicely. You can turn them off or layer different sounds like water, birds, frogs and bugs. These can be changed by tapping in the bottom right corner. There are also other settings there like amount of fish and lily pads, and the color of the water and you can even switch it to night mode. [Read more…]
