Bloom – Multitouch Music Application

Well, it’s about time I released another application right? If anyone has ever played Bloom on the iPhone, I’m sure you’ll recognize my port from iphone to table.

If you’re not familiar with bloom, it’s a very simple music creation application. Press anywhere on the screen to create circles that grow and ‘bloom.’ As they fade out and re-appear, they play a note. The note is based on the x-axis. As you move right, the notes go higher.

Click the above image to play

How to use:

-Press on screen (mouse, touch, multi-touch)
-Rollover/touch/click already created circles to remove them and their sound
-Press the upper left ‘clear’ button to clear all circles and sounds on screen.

Source Code:

Binary Application:

The source folder should include everything you need to run the application. You don’t need to copy anything into your current AS3 directory. I’ve commented the Main.as file very well and it should give a good look into making simple applications with the AS3 Touch API.

Check out olo:idea video below that shows the Bloom running on a large multitouch display.

    hi lovely app but what does it run on (please forgive the obvious question ) linux (ubuntu or unr) could do with a little advice
    all the best

    • Hi rich,

      It runs on all platforms that have flash player. It is a flash application and therefore you only need flash player.

  • Wow! What an awesome application bound to bring countless hours of audiovisual delight. I love it, it looks so futuristic.
