Customer Reviews


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.

Nice basic fractal renderer

This is a nice basic app for Mandelbrot and Julia rendering. Not as powerful as the open source app frac or the long defunct Mandela on macOS 7, but a useful app. Thanks to the developer for this!

Very well done

Great design and user interface. Just what an classic Mandelbrot explorer like me was looking for!
