Frax is an art program that puts the “equations of nature” in the palm of your hand. Frax is powered by fractal geometry, the same principle that creates patterns of self-similarity in our natural world. From spiral galaxies to hurricanes, from tree limbs to branching blood vessels, the universe is filled with endless variation and staggering beauty. Frax visualizes this natural geometric code, so you can explore vast animating digital landscapes and make a masterpiece on your touchscreen.
Zoom deep into your creations. Use multi-touch gestures to fly through and explore intricate shapes and patterns. Tilt-to-steer through animating digital worlds, as you challenge yourself to chart a course for a long and beautiful flight –all at a depth range of a trillion-to-one.
Unleash your inner artist with complex color gradients to smoothly tint and shade your fractal shapes, two light sources for glossy reflections, and novel textures. The combinations are endless: supersmooth or wildly chaotic, metallic sheen or pearly white, subtle shades, stark monochrome or screaming supergloss. Or upgrade to Pro to access almost 100 parameters and controls!
Then share your creations with your friends via Facebook, Twitter and text. Or invite other users to step into your animating world by sharing a live preset link. You can render high-quality images to your photo library or create ultra-high quality 50 Megapixel renders with an IAP. Frax users have put their designs on canvas, posters, scarves, T-shirts and textiles. Users own the rights to their art, so the creative possibilities are endless.
What will Frax inspire in you?
We hope you enjoy Frax!

Everyone should own this app
I stumbled on this and am completely blown away by its power and beauty and interface. It brings back memories of reading James Gleick's "Chaos" book when it appeared in 1987 and my first introduction to Mandelbrot and fractals. When I got my first Mac Plus (sigh… that ages me!) I spend hours with a Mandelbrot program (in B&W of course). It is an apt illustration of how far computing has advanced when I think of those early images on a desktop Mac and what Frax HD produces on an iPad. Everyone *should* own this app to explore one of the wonders of mathematical science and view the incredible images it creates.
Fantastic! Best iOS fractal app.
This is one of those rare visual artistic apps that does what it claims. Possibly even more.
Its a no brainer, get the Pro upgrade!
If you love fractals you won't regret it.
I only wish it had a little more shapes, textures, and special effects to further explore the fractal universe and customize to a greater degree.
Its great as is, but just a few more creative options would be fantastic.
Best of Its Kind
Stunningly beautiful. Amazingly deep. I've tried several fractal apps, but none of them were anywhere near as good as Frax HD. I deleted all the others. Do yourself a favor and get the Pro upgrade. Hi-res renders are suitable for professional graphic design. It's so much more than I expected.
