The End-All App for Conway's GoL and Myriad 1 & 2D CA A near-perfect 1-to-1 mobile implementation of one of the best programs for exploring cellular automata out there. I can see how the UI could be daunting to newcomers, but as someone who used the original desktop version, I can say I'm past satisfied. Saving patterns locally and loading more from the wiki or any site that distributes .rle file patterns, all the features I could ask for are present. This is not a "lite" edition, so for those less experienced with the GoL, hold off, but Golly users, get it!
When I was younger at around 10 years old, I got bored and stumbled upon cellular automata, among other free programs such as robot programming games. I thought they looked cool and didn't think much of them. Flash forward to now where these kinds of programs are still around, I was surprised to see mobile ports. This particular cellular automata program wasn't the one I used when I was young, but it definitely is very advanced. There are a wealth of features to customize the simulations, and there are many bundled example files as well. In addition the Golly website has the original versions for computers and is open source, which makes Golly a great choice for a many versions to choose from and a quality FOSS project.
It is awesome and has amazing performance but I would like to see a better inplementation of the fullscreen mode: Make it actually fullscreen (not just hide a bar) Add a litte fast-menu (eg. on the press of the back button a box shows up with options to change the speed, move/draw and stop/start options with one click)
One of the best and most powerful cellular automaton simulator. If only they would extend it to neighbourhood of radius 2!
Great work. Would love to see an update with more desktop features coming in such as exporting to image & choosing the color of the cells. Different icon shapes could also be a great addition.
A great program, but I'd like to see a stochastic update feature as well.
Fixed various bugs that could cause Golly to crash.
Increased the size of text in the Open screen.
