Stephen Fry: “This app is so beautiful it makes me want to weep.”

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!

Its Alive!

When I seen Frax fractals people were doing I thought how can they look like that! ? So clear, so close, so shiny!!To have a fractal program on my iPad wow I had to try it..It never ceases to amaze even after a year! Its challenging enough to keep your interest but easy enough make you proud of what you can create! Truly interactive in that Frax has a way to lead you in the right direction by a few gestures of its own you will learn to reconize. Tons of documentation so you can fine tune some of the beautuiful elements in this fun fractal app!

A thing of beauty!

Love this app! Relaxing, mesmerizing and addictive. Great support from the creators of this app. Endless possibilities await you. The high resolution renderings are in such fine detail and incredible focus that you could enlarge the image beyond wall size, and not pixelate. An exciting new technology allows this. Had this app been available in late sixties, early seventies, I would have never gone to school. I would have opened a poster shop instead.

A bit of iOS beauty

Wow! This app shows the power and beauty of a simple equation. The more I play with it, the more stunning visuals I can create. It's one of the few apps I return to again and again. I also like to use the Flow mode (found by tapping the Frax logo) for a bit of a zen break.
