MyReef 3D Aquarium App Review

MyReef 3D Aquarium reminds me of my Aquazone Desktop Garden screensaver I have on my Desktop PC. The whole idea of having a fish aquarium on your iPhone is kind of cool as you can watch various 3D fishes finding their way through a beautiful reef tank.

You can add different numbers and types of fishes in the fish tank. You can also increase the sound effects so that you can hear the water rushing through your ears like you are actually near a real fish tank.

This application does one thing well to help people relax by watching the fishes swim in the tank. Tapping on the lower corner of the screen reveals the configuration menu.

You can follow the movements of one fish by tapping on the video camera with a fish icon or just watch all the fishes swim by tapping on the second video camera icon which is known as the Auto-camera. The auto-camera helps to zoom in to different points of interest in your aquarium.

The basic pinch in and pinch out iPhone gestures work here in this application which allows you to zoom in onto the fishes even if you don’t use the video camera features.

You can feed the fishes in this application. Once you drop the food in the water, you can see a lot of fishes vying for the food. It looks like a real fish tank. There is a count-down timer for feeding fish, which means you have to wait before you can feed them again. I guess this control is to prevent the fish tank from being flooded with fish food which will obstruct the view of the fishes.

The great thing about this app is that you don’t need to clean your fish tank to maintain the fishes. It is a sight to behold to get a fish tank in your iPhone or iPod Touch but probably you can show off to your friends and relatives for the thrill of it.

Functionality: 4 /5
Ease of Use: 4 /5
Value for Money: 4 / 5
Type of users Catered for: More for relaxation and Fish Hobbyists
Overall: 4 /5
