Please help us work out the bugs by leaving feedback including your device model and benchmark scores. If we know the engine is working well on lots of devices that will really keep us motivated to get the game done!
Thanks for playing!
And now a music/audio visualizer !
You can select the amount of particles and their size or just let the app automatically choose
See how many particles your phone can handle.
Play music with your music player and then run this application.
4 different physics engines are available. You can switch between them by tapping the screen.
Pinch to zoom.
Permissions for recording audio & modify audio settings are to allow this application to listen to the current playing music and to react with it.
/!\ This app is still under development, don't hesitate to tell me when it crashes.
If you get a black screen or the app just closes, try a smaller number of particles (example 500) and a particle size of 5.
If you still have a bug, just comment/email telling me your device model, and the particle number/size/motion blur on|off setting used. Thank you :)
How it's made :
Using NDK, this app is coded in C++ and compiled for ARM/X86/MIPS processors. The engine runs a thread for each of you CPU cores.

Key features of Magic Fluids:
- Highly configurable fluid behaviour and look
- 10 configuration presets - if you're lazy
- You can save your own presets
- Multitouch controls
- Smoke (gas) and water (liquid) animation
- Thousands of particles moving with the fluid
- You can pause the animation anytime and save screenshots
- You can use Magic Fluids as a regular app or as a Live Wallpaper
- Highly optimized, multiple quality settings for wide range of devices
Possibilities are endless, effects are fantastic.
Magic Fluids allows for a great deal of customization. You can modify fluid type, color palette, how long it stays on the screen, when colors should change and much more.
Fluid alone is great, but it only gets better. Turn on particles and watch how they move with the fluid and emphasize it's motion. Particles have lots of configuration options as well - shape, size, color and more. You can have more than 15000 particles on the screen, but you better have a strong device if you want to do that!
Whatever configuration you come up with, it would be great to save it and use anytime later. That's what user presets are for - you can store ten fluid presets and load them with a single click!
Are you lazy and don't want to wade through lots of settings? You can use one of ten predefined fluid configurations and still experience a great diversity that Magic Fluids offers! Examples of existing presets are Floating Flames, Wavy Winter or Classy Combination.
Magic Fluids features two fluid animation methods:
- Smoke - classic gas simulation. Smoke is slow and steady. It's great when you want to slow down and relax
- Water - uncommon method that makes fluid behaviour more similar to liquid than gas. You can almost feel the pressure propagating through the water while you touch the screen. It's perfect when you want to create dynamic animations and images full of swirls and curls.
When you press the Menu Button (hardware button on older devices, three-dot button on newer ones) animation pauses. From there you can clear the screen, go to settings menu or save the screenshot to file on external storage (it goes to /Pictures/MagicFluids/ directory). Note that external storage (which usually means SD Card, but on some devices external storage is actually internal) must be available on your device. You can later use it as a wallpaper or show your friends what you can do with Magic Fluids!
Magic Fluids is primarily intended to be used as a separate application but you can also use it as a Live Wallpaper! Due to diversity of Android devices it's a little shaky feature though. I will really appreciate if you report any issues (hopefully there won't be any!) straight to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll try to fix them ASAP.
Talking about diversity of devices... Magic Fluids works great on a wide range of them, thanks to multiple quality settings. On first run it will try to guess which is best for your device, but you might want to experiment with them to make sure that your hardware is used to it's limits. Just don't get offended if the most convenient setting turns out to be "I Found My Grandpa's Phone"! :)
Free version of Magic Fluids has two presets (out of ten), limited configuration options and doesn't allow to save screenshots. You can still use it as a Live Wallpaper though!
I want to hear from you!
