[prMac.com] Durbanville, South Africa - grapevine-cottage today is pleased to announce the release of Plopp - bubble wrap 1.0 for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad with specific 3D touch support. The app simulates a piece of bubble wrap foil, and allows you to press and burst the bubble. On 3D touch supporting devices (currently iPhone 6s, 6s+), the app responds to real user pressure on screen, and uses the taptic engine to give real tactile feedback, to make it feel as real as possible. The number of bubbles "plopped" are counted, submitted to game center, and synchronised across devices via iCloud.
In an initial statement, a test user said: "Unbelievable - you can really feel a tactile sensation under your finger, and it only plops when you press, not just at a touch. This is the closest thing I've seen so far for bubble wrap apps!". Going on, he mentioned the addiction that some people have with bubble wrap, and that they cannot resist to start plopping the bubbles when they get a piece of foil into their hands. He said, that "it is still a smartphone in your fingers, not a wobbly and soft foil, but the plop you hear and feel is a new quality of the illusion". Through Game center integration users can stack up their bubbles plopped against family and friends, and challenge their achievements.
"You really have to feel it yourself - touch the bubble, press it, even press through. Hear the sound, feel the plopp, this was not possible before!" the lead developer encouraged the audience in his recent statement.
