Little Uzu for the iPhone/iPod Touch

Little Uzu for the iPhone/iPod Touch is based on the the award winning Uzu for the iPad.  A re-imagined control scheme allows for Little Uzu to have all the fun and complexity of Uzu for the iPad, but in a smaller space. Little Uzu has most of the animation modes from Uzu along with 3 brand new modes exclusive to the iPhone/iPod Touch!

****** CONTROL ******

Little Uzu will respond to up to 5 touches. The 1, 2, 4, and 5 touch modes are always the same.  In order to have more than five total modes, the 3 touch mode is comprised of eight different modes that cycle each time you lift all your fingers off the screen.  This means that you can change to a different 3 touch mode by lifting all 3 fingers and putting them back down. Switching from 3 touch to 1, 2, 4, or 5 touch will keep the same 3 touch mode active.

****** ANIMATION MODES ******

0 Touch: Brownian motion and boundary wrap
1 Touch: emanate and radiate
2 Touch: pinch attraction and boundary bounce
3 Touch: (a)vortex, (b)inverted vortex, (c)radial vortex, (d)dual oscillator, (e)spiral, (f)spring points, (g)radial spokes, and (h)oscillator spokes
4 Touch: 3d freeze and translate
5 Touch: change color and particle size


  1. Just as long as you add the new modes to the iPad version, I’m cool with it.

  2. A universal app would have been nice :(

    Oh well, I bought it. Quite a bit of fun. Will the upcoming features for the ipad version be updated into the little version?

    • I struggled with the decision to make two separate apps. When I started out, I intended to make it universal, but as I worked on Little Uzu it became clear that I could do more creatively if I separated them. As such, I’m going to be giving each of them unique features. Some of these features might make sense to “reverse-port” and other won’t. I’ll really have to see what works. Rest assured that I am very much listening to all the feedback I hear. I will continue to try to make Uzu and Little Uzu better while keeping the overall simplicity that makes them unique. Thanks for the comments!

  3. Thanks for a great app. My family all loves this thing – especially my baby! Hope to help you sell a few more copies, GREAT job!
