Smithsonian: “Immersive.” CNET: “Spectacular.” Macworld: “Exquisite.”
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. And for the first time, you can now record VIDEO of your Frax animations directly within the app! (Pro IAP required.) Our users have put their designs on canvas, posters, scarves, T-shirts and textiles. The creative possibilities are endless!
What will Frax inspire in you?
We hope you enjoy Frax!

Still has a few secrets.
I love this app and have been using it since it first came out. I upgraded to HD Pro as soon as I could with no regrets.
An undocumented feature could use some illumination: tap the edge to bring up UI buttons, tap the upper left grid to get to the gallery. No, there is a "photos" menu. If the imported image was saved from Frax, it has metadata that allows you to pick up with your exploring where you left off. If the image is not from Frax, the colors become the palette for exploration.
The easiest, fastest and most artistic fractal explorer app on IOS
Fun to just play with, it's also a useful artistic tool. The group behind it have been involved in some of the most creative digi-art for many years now, and it shows in Frax. Obviously a labor of love and very well done. Five stars.
A++++ for design choices F for mathematical choices.
I would like to see more mathematical choices to create more varied geometrical shapes. In other apps I've played around with, you can actually mess around with different formulas. It seems like you are given two presets, and bobs your uncle. I like more variety!
