[prMac.com] Berkley, CA - Announcing that Flux Visual, the developer of Hookah, has released an app for users looking for a safe yet realistic smoking experience. Hookah is the most realistic smoking app on the market, with authentic sounds, amazing life-like graphics and animation, all of which gives users the sense of smoking satisfaction. The best part of all is the fact with Hookah there is no offending smell and no health risks associated with this now taboo pleasure.
The Hookah app makes use of an iDevice's microphone to produce some of the natural sounds. A user merely holds the microphone to their mouth when smoking and the app incorporates the inhales and exhales into the sound effects, along with the app's existing bubbling of water and crackling of flame and tobacco.
The openGL animated graphics in Hookah add to the sense of realism in this app, from the flame that bends when it should to the movement of smoke through the tube and around the bowl and screen. All in all, Hookah is very convincing.
Smoking satisfaction aside, users can have a lot of fun with Hookah. The interactive app requires a user to pack the bowl and light before smoking. Once a bowl of tobacco is done, the user must shake their device to empty out the ash before starting over again. It's all part of the authentic experience.

* Incredible graphics
