"With over 100,000 apps in the app store, it's getting harder and harder to find something new; Balloons! is something I haven't seen before, and it's really very clever." www.tuaw.com
"Balloons reminds me of the message-in-a-bottle feeling of the early days of the Internet -- 'Hey, who else is out there?'" - http://downloadsquad.com/
"This is a great idea, and bound to go down very well with your kids." - http://www.cultofmac.com
"Balloons! is a fascinating concept that is executed well. It’s fun, easy to pick-up-and-play, and draws a bridge between the traditional idea of a physical balloon experiment and virtual social networking. 8/10" http://mac.appstorm.net
