Quincy overview

Quincy is a musical explorer of Life, a cellular automaton created by J.H.Conway. Conway’s Game Of Life has long been of great interest to musicians specifically as a pattern generator. Quincy is a full implementation of Life, capable of generating all possible variations, the common B3/S23 as well as others like HighLife or Seeds. It is document-based and features adjustable grid size, random cell insertion and more. Quincy comes with a large library of patterns, a color mixer for a document’s color set and many display options. Editing tools beyond pen and pattern stamp also include options like copy, paste and rotate.

I bought Quincy for iOS a long time ago, but I still don't have a current device on which to run it (I'm on a 1st gen iPad). The dev has updated it six times so far on iOS, which to me shows commitment to maintaining the app. Also, it looks like it might be more accessible than a certain other cross-platform generative music app. I'll be interested to see what people say about this.
