Balloons! has been featured in the What's Hot list and has been an Apple Staff Favourite around the world.


"With over 100, 000 apps in the app store, it's getting harder and harder to find something new; Balloons! is something I haven't seen before, and it's really very clever." www.tuaw.com

"Balloons reminds me of the message-in-a-bottle feeling of the early days of the Internet 'Hey, who else is out there?'" - http://downloadsquad.com/

"This is a great idea, and bound to go down very well with your kids." - http://www.cultofmac.com

"Balloons! is a fascinating concept that is executed well. It’s fun, easy to pick-up-and-play, and draws a bridge between the traditional idea of a physical balloon experiment and virtual social networking. 8/10" http://mac.appstorm.net
