Miracle Modus

Miracle Modus


"It goes ding and you feel better." -- Jesse H., noted fantasy author and spouse

The Miracle Modus is a source of hypnotic rainbows and soft bells. I'm autistic, and I wrote this because I wanted something to mitigate sensory overload. I find mathematically-patterned rainbow lights very soothing. After I showed it to a couple of friends and they had similar experiences, I decided to publish it.

The first time you open the app, it will make a bit of noise and draw a bunch of lines, squares, and hexes. Once it's done this it should have a guess as to how fast your device is, and be able to perform decently. This is a little unreliable still; improvements are planned.

More testimonials from users:
"I can stop watching this whenever I want to, I just don't want to right now." -- Magical Princess Lory, webcomic artist
"It changed my life and perception. Whether it was for the best remains to be seen." -- brightwave, app developer
"I was so overloaded my face went numb and I couldn't get up off the couch, so he showed me the app and said to give it a try, and I felt relaxed for the first time in days. If you are stuck on the couch whimpering, try to slide this app under your prostrate face as soon as possible." -- Luka D., webcomic artist
"It's so cool I can't even look at it." - Lerg, app developer

USAGE:
Watch the pretty lights. Want different pretty lights? Tap in any corner, then tap the arrows to change modes. Most modes are at least a little interactive, but sometimes it is pretty subtle. After you've explored a bit, you may find you prefer some modes, or don't like some of them. We've thought of that!

SETTINGS:
Tap in any corner, then tap on the gear to bring up the settings page. This allows you to change (or disable) the sounds, enable or disable modes so you only see your favorites, or re-run the benchmark phase if you think it got bogus results.

SUPPORT:
See the support page. Feel free to email suggestions for display modes you'd like to see, as I enjoy writing new display modes. If you wish to report the app being slow or erratic, be sure to tell me what device you've got, and what it's doing.

KNOWN ISSUES:
Performance is not as reliable as I'd like.

PRICING:
The app is free. It used to have a donation feature, but it wasn't worth the effort of maintaining.

ABOUT THE NAME:
The name "Miracle Modus" is used by kind permission of Andrew Hussie. It is a reference to a device in his webcomic "Homestuck".

Recent changes:
Version 1.2:
* Removed donation option since no one used it.
* Fixed possible memory leak.

Version 1.1:
* UI changed: Now tap in corners to get to settings or change modes. Double-taps don't have special meaning.
* Preferences page improved.
* You can choose from a few different color palettes.
* Massively improved performance on some Android sound hardware (should address choppy sound for many users).
* New display modes.
* Various cleanup and improvements.

Very useful app :) My favourite modes are Fire and Firebugs based on how much you can affect them, some of the others aren't interactive enough for me to really be calmed/distracted by them, but that's just me. Also, if you were ever to make a new version of this app, it might be cool for there to be some option of having the phone vibrate a bit, maybe in response to touch? I'm not sure how possible that is but I figure it would be a nice extra source of sensory input and could be possible since phones have the ability to vibrate anyway. :)
