Deep Fractal Viewer
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
This app lets you zoom deeply into three fascinating regions of the Mandelbrot set.
IMPORTANT: Calculations are NOT performed live to permit an ULTRA-DEEP zoom: You can zoom down to a tiny pixel spacing of 1e-30, where 100 Million iterations per pixel are required. To enable this deep zoom, your choice had to be restricted to three regions in the Mandelbrot set. Other apps are available, which allow you to chose any region at less zoom.
What's New in Version 2.3
+ iOS 6 compatible
+ retina 4-inch compatible
Very cool glimpse into this world...
The author states up front that because of the incredible amount of calculations required, this app only allows the user to explore THREE AREAS. So, if you download this (free!) app and are actually disappointed that you only got to see three areas, you can yourself to blame for that.
Smooth zooming, nice color palette, and three of the most interesting areas of the Mandelbrot set. Well coded, with a link to wikipedia's article on the subject as well. Five stars.
Works as advertised.
It's not interactive though, so it's probably not what you're looking for. Also it does not seem to zoom very deep compared to the 64 bit fractal zooms on a popular video sharing site. This zooming slideshow app seems to zoom about as far as the (32 bit) Fractile Plus app which is interactive.
(The iPhone 5s has a 64 bit processor, so hopefully someone will make a deep zoomer.)
You get three points to choose from. Zoom in on those three over and over. No variations.
