Trying to align moving dots on an iPhone screen might sound like an unlikely way for a couple to learn some new dance moves, but that’s the idea behind the Bounden app – and it was apparently created with the help of the Dutch National Ballet … 

By holding the phone between you, and moving to align the dots, you end up recreating moves choreographed by the ballet company’s Ernst Meisner. We suspect a bottle of wine is a recommended option.

The app costs $4 from iTunes.

The developer is attempting to port the app to Android, but so far hasn’t been having much luck, finding that even premium handsets like the Samsung S4 had gyroscopes that either worked badly or were even faked by mixing accelerometer and compass data.

  1. a little weird for my taste…

  2. Yet another twist to the fragmentation of Android and how it is holding back the platform. Too many people focus too much on the screen size and, somewhat rightly, dismiss it as not that big of a deal. The screen size and resolution is only one of the elements of fragmentation in Android.

      I agree that Android needs to get it together on a few fronts, one of which is better control on updates. That said, very little of it is normally an issue. Most apps run on most versions of Android and on most handsets. Because of this, its not bad to focus on screen size, camera quality and other novel features because many of them affect the daily user experience far more than not getting the ballet app.

      I get what you are saying, but the fragmentation is not a big of a deal as some make it out to be. Bloatware on the other-hand is, forcing people to root just to dispose of useless apps.
