I'll ruin this moment for you and tell you that the app actually sucks, you can see a ink tree and move it around as it "grows" and then some chinese symbols appear, big woop. Might make a nice wallpaper, but its def not gonna stay on my iphone... I mean, Ipotch

It's not really a game, but I found it kind of neat nonetheless.

It's definitely worth it to pick it up at its current price.

How long does "neat" stuff last on a device?

Depends on how neat. I found this more interesting than, say, Koi Pond.

As long as you like it to...

I probably open Koi Pond and Freshwater Aquarium once a month, depending on my circumstance and mood.

This is ok. I'll be editing the screenshots to make very zen wallpapers, but other than that, its just ok. I wish the bonsai could expand indefinately. That would be nice. And a menu to select which one you wanted.

I agree on both points. It would also be interesting to 'cross-breed' trees, so you could do some experimenting; the ability to toy with the algorithms so you alter the number of branches/leaves would be a great little diversion.

All in all it's not really something to spend a great deal of time on, but I like the overall design and the 3D aspect of the trees.
