The toy top that buzzes with sci-fi sounds and glows with limitless, colorful shapes...
Best of iPhone Entertainment in the US and 8 other countries - App Store Rewind 2011
Cosmic Top is a toy, a 3D audiovisual physics simulation of a spinning, wobbling, and morphing top. The top floats among stars and takes on unlimited colorful shapes and sci-fi sounds which glow and hum in stereo from your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. Swipe to spin it, pinch to zoom it, or hold to brake it. If you rotate your device, you can see and hear the top from all sides. Record your own spin and tumble sounds and then hear both tracks played back in sync with the motion of the top. Create and share video of your favorite top action. Edit echo effects, color flow, and spin inertia of each top style. Best of all, with a touch of the cosmic button, a new cosmos of sight and sound will be created for you to explore.

Ratings and Reviews
A very good app just got better!
Update: OMG I just remembered this app and fetched it!!! My iPad died and it’s a rude awaking to only have the iPhone 12 screen. Very few apps are ‘reasonable’ to use on the i12. Cosmic Top is not one of them. I love this app, and I never said that about any app before, ever. I own several thousand. It can be so relaxing, mesmerizing, meditative and fun! And they have added some new tops since I played with it last. 🤓
I, and everybody that plays with Cosmic Top, fall in love with it and now with this update for the Retina display it looks even better. Adding CD quality is even better! It's a great baby sitter even for adults. Lol
I still play with this app after more than 5 years!! I want to make an art installation with it for festivals it is that cool on a big screen or projection.
Needs iPad mini 6th gen support
Make it fit the new screen size.
