By far the most appealing app I've ever had Other than minor glitches, this app is remarkable. I feel wrong calling it an app because it is more than that, it's art. The depth of the concept is incredible, like a breakthrough in media. Why haven't more people downloaded it yet?? I love Björk's music, and this app just goes to prove what a broad and incredible mind this beautiful woman has. Not to disclude the other people who've put much work into the creation of this app! You all did a very amazing thing.
Potentially awesome The concept is remarkable, the "gameplay" is very diverse and involving. Unfortunately the sound quality is often significantly low: something about 64 kbps with a low bit depth. There are also some clicks and glitches during the transition between parts of soundscapes and sometimes during the rendering process. Overall when listening in headphones it becomes disappointing. I hope that the dev team will fix that. Note: launched on BlueStacks
Beautifully done! I could play with this app for hours. My favorite part is being able to follow along with the scores of the songs. One minor bug: when you click Back to exit, it asks, "Are you sure you want to exit?" and the response buttons do the opposite of what they should do - "Yes" stays in the app while "No" closes it.
The most beautiful app i've seen. It's just the best app i ever used, until biophilia i was thinking apps were necessary evil. This is a creative app, you can learn how to play ten smart instruments that were invented for this project, engaging a holistic message on the cross-section of sustainability/emotional health and new ways of thinking electronic music. I play techno on "moon" and "solstice" mostly. Beautifully executed. If you cherish any subtlety around yourself try this.
Doesn't seem to be working I don't want to leave a bad review because this looks great from the screenshots, but it doesn't seem to be working for me. Unlike the screenshot, none of the song titles are showing up in the mess of white lines, nor the text that says I can swipe to turn it. When I do swipe, it turns very staggerdly, although the overall app runs smooth. I'm not sure what the music note is supposed to do but clicking it just makes everything disappear. I did manage to do something by tapping furiously and it zoomed in on a certain area and started playing music, but there must have been a start button that I couldn't see?
Love the overall concept I love the overall concept of this app however I am having trouble particularly with Hollow (its apparently "comping soon" despite being out for 5 years) and Crystalline (callibration issues every now and again, the game mostly works until i go through two openings; callibration seems to just stop and the crystal stays at the top of the screen). If these issues are fixed then this will be a 5 star app! Brilliant way to learn and teach the different elements of music and nature!! I love the Virus and Thunderbolt apps :)
Thank you for collaborating with us on Android in Björk's Biophilia. Here are the latest changes in version 1.6:
- Fixed suspend/resume issue in Score mode
- Removed multitouch.DISTINCT from features so that more devices can download the app
- Incremental update system - people who have downloaded Biophilia already won't have to download all 500MB again to update!
