As the name suggests, it’s about a Japanese style garden with streams, a waterfall, and of course koi. You can walk around the circular garden by tapping the glowing green arrows on the path, adjust your perspective in a real life manner, enjoy the virtual clean fresh air, …. and feed the fish.
Lately, I had been looking for an iPad handwriting app that can give me the feel of real paper and ink. I tried quite a number of apps, from simple to sophisticated ones, but they all lacked in terms of the real experience.
