Customer Reviews

Not so much...

I'm a graphic designer and I love playing with fractals and this programs interface wasn't as user friendly as I could have hoped for and you are limited to only Mandelbrot or Julia for generating images I like to have more control and a more user friendly interface that lets me randomize or customize the fractal i'm working on.


Don't bother wasting your time with this crap it won't even download to my computer even though i meet all requiremnts. the guy at the genius bar couldn't even figure it out

Cool App!

Fractals are pretty interesting to explore, and the customizability this app offers allows is pretty cool!
