Fast Fractal is the fastest Mandelbrot set explorer for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
- Blazing speed allows for perfectly fluid exploring with standard pinch and swipe gestures
- Exceptional image quality with user-adjustable oversampling setting
- Full double precision floating point math, allows 100 BILLION times magnification
- Full support for dual core chips and the new A6 chip
- Easily set number of iterations and coordinates
- Switch between Mandelbrot and Julia sets with a toolbar button (optional)
- Saves your coordinates and settings when you exit
Fast Fractal is made by the developer of tChess (the popular chess app) and Learn Chess (the Apple Staff Favorite e-book).
What's New in Version 1.0.2
- Fixed a bug that displayed a "low memory" warning when the app had plenty of memory
A more seamless experience, like on a PC, than the other apps available. Zooming is smooth. This is a fully functional Mandelbrot zoom app, not a prerendered videos app as another reviewer stated. Play with the iterations and to see retina sharpness, max the oversampling. Tap for fullscreen.
Very well done
Great design and user interface. Just what an classic Mandelbrot explorer like me was looking for!
Quite a demonstration of the power of an iPhone's processor. Nice graphics - well done!
