    It's by the makers of Koi Pond; the Blimp Pilots so it should be very good

    I have it and enjoy it. It is very relaxing and very well polished

    Exactly, just with messages in a bottle.

    I want to get this, but I feel this will get boring over time like Koi Pond

    I'm really liking this app. I have received many thought provoking messages as well as very nice ones. It's relaxing and fun to meet people all over the world. Way better than Zephyr.

    I'm sure they will update it at some point. Koi Pond was released back in August, and they still didn't forget about it and added a little something-something to it the other day.

    The app has a pretty decent following already, so if demand for updates is there - I'm sure Blimp Pilots will listen.

    Once I found out the developer from Koi Pond released this, I bought it. I love the way they updated Koi Pond and made it a better app. I expect they'll do the same for Distant Shore, but already it's nice to play with.

    I can't stop using this app, IT'S GREAT! I usually get sick of apps really quick or just buy them and never use them (ya Im weird like that) but this one has held my attention!

    Definitely recommended.

    lol, I have like 10 bottle conversations going on right now, One girl from England, one from Texas, one from California, one from New york and one from Florida....can't remember the others... I don't want to send out any NEW bottles because the current 'Pen pals' are enough to overwhelm me lol.

    Me: Mom?
    Someone: Yes dear?
    Me: Can I have a cookie?
    Someone: No.
    Me: I'm not really your son.

    But there is no dialogue, right?
    I truelly love the sounds!
    It would be perfect if you could interact a little with the objects at the beach.
    For example, tapping the ball to move it a little.... no big actions, just some tiny details to bring this world even more to life.

    But a nice app....atmosphere is fantastic!

    Ah, now I see, they can reply! Cool!
    So now this is MUCH better than Zephyr.

    Ya this app pretty much makes Zephyr obsolete.
