"According to quantum mechanics, every observation brings new universes into existence. But these universes have been completely useless to us -- until now! Universe splitter helps guarantee that there's at least one version of you who has made all the right choices."
-- Sean Carroll, physicist at Caltech and author of FROM ETERNITY TO HERE.
"The functioning of this app is in complete agreement with the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics."
--Garrett Lisi, PhD, Theoretical Physics
Scientists say that every quantum event plays out simultaneously in every possible way, with each possibility becoming real in a separate universe. But that was just an abstract concept... until now! Because now, you can harness this powerful and mysterious effect right from your iPhone or iPod Touch!
When faced with a tough choice, Universe Splitter allows you to live out BOTH of your options... in separate realities.* No mere coin-flip app can make this claim!
Here's how it works:
Let's say you have to make a difficult decision — for example, whether to accept a job offer or to turn it down — just type both actions into your Universe Splitter, and press the "Split Universe" button.
Universe Splitter will then, over the internet, activate a remote "Quantis" brand quantum device (made by id Quantique, and certified by the National Metrology Institute of Switzerland) which will send a single photon into a quantum "either/or" state. According to current scientific thinking, though, the photon will actually be in a "both, but in separate universes" state!
Within seconds, Universe Splitter will report to you which of those two universes you’re in, and by taking a different action in each, you will cause these otherwise identical universes to diverge.*
Of course, you won't be able to see or interact with that other universe. In fact, you may question whether anything at all happened. But according to the prevailing quantum theory, there will be two of you pondering whether anything just happened!
Right now you're probably wondering: Does this app genuinely contact a quantum device in Geneva? YES, it absolutely does, and we would be happy to provide proof of this upon request. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
As BDembko writes: "The real joke... is that it's NOT a joke. Which actually makes it funnier, if you ask me. (Kind of an Andy Kaufman kind of thing) The guy actually went the extra 10 miles... and it seems so absurd to us, that we figure it's a joke. But it's not... which then means it is. This is seriously quantum humor to the extreme."
And -- if an infinite supply of universes isn't enough for you -- this app also gives you stylish, retro, machine-age graphics (complete with industrial-strength sound effects) which will underscore the awe-inspiring significance of each twist and turn of your ever-branching multiverse.
If you're a believer in the "Many Worlds" interpretation of quantum behavior, this app is a must. And if you're not, just think of this as THE most random of all coin-flip apps -- in that it uses the single most unpredictable thing in the known universe: a single quantum event!

Looks great! Perhaps, more user-engagement? Overall good!
I like the easily guided user- experience of the app. The design as well!
Would be even more informative if the user can edit and log their own decision after the proposed suggestion from the app. To log, what was proposed and see if the user did do what the Many Worlds theory suggests, or they are living in a different universe. -- a quick tap to change the decision of your "path" after the action has taken place ex. Change From 'take a chance' to 'play it safe' as you did stay on the sofa and didn't clean the apartment.
I believe the manual part of that journey might help various people keep track of their thoughts and their suppressed needs/wants in life. Would help in understanding our own habits and manifestations, common paths and profiles, something like a metaperception of yourself.
Thanks! Looks great!
What if this app isn’t really doing a quantum observation this whole time and has just been calling arc4random_uniform this whole time? Other than that, my only quibble is that the universes created stat should be >n+1 not 2^n (n = splits) because you can’t assume other timelines use the app as much as you do. Maybe every other branch that was the last time you ever used this app.

Please email me at email@example.com if you doubt the app’s function or validity.
About your other point: It’s true that we can’t know how often the alternate versions of us continue to split the universe. But my logic was this: some probably use it more than us, and some less than us. There’s no reason to think one is likelier than the other, so our best guess is that their use of the app averages out to about the same as ours. And if that’s the case, then 2 to the power of n is a reasonable estimate. (And you’ll notice that’s what it’s called: an estimate.)
Interesting app. Interesting idea. But, I’m another guy that’s getting all only one branch. The first entry is always coming up as the “my universe” and the second is always the “other you” universe. To the Dev. Are you sure this isn’t just a fault in the app? Or am I just the one guy being “mislead (by the universe)”? Assuming this is just me and I’m simply doomed by the universe (lol) this app could be interesting for discovery authors and rpg’ers. Not certain I would suggest it for anything else. Well, Idk, maybe physicists. Regardless, it’s interesting and thought provoking. Five stars.

Thanks for the review! True random numbers always have more “runs” than our intuition would expect. But send me a screen grab of your “chart” — I’d like to see how long your run was (is)!
