FractalMaker lets you explore and create amazing Mandelbrot fractals using a new coloring algorithm called SAM (the Stripe Average Method) as seen in the screenshot. It's really easy. Just tap anywhere in the grayscale Mandelbrot on the right and a new fractal is rendered in the previewer on the left using the current gradient and parameters. Tap the Zoom buttons to increase or decrease the zoom factor in 10x increments or choose a specific zoom factor from the popover. Tap anywhere in the Fractal Previewer to center the fractal at that point. You can also drag or pinch it to precisely position or zoom the fractal. The 4 SAM parameters give you a lot of creative flexibility.

There is an excellent Gradient Creation popover to let you create your own custom gradients to fill the exterior of the fractal. Use the Color Picker to choose RGB or HSB colors by bar, slider or text entry for any colorstop in the gradient.

When you're satisfied with your fractal you can render it out at a larger size and more importantly with 4x4 antialiasing for the best results. Then you can switch to Viewer Mode to see more of the fractal without the editing controls. Finally, save your Fractal by adding it to the Fractal Library so you can retrieve it later.

Have fun exploring fractal space.
It's infinite, which is like, um, vast and you never know what's around the corner.
