Insanely Awesome Science Websites and Resources That Will Blow Your Mind
Fractals allows students to explore the wonderful world of fractals in an easy to use free app.
Shear aesthetic power opens a new art venue and opportunity to surpass all previous styles of ornamentation. The revelation of self- similarity across orders of magnitude is wonderfully illustrated here: the possibility of incorporating non-fractal elements remains an exciting potential giving a new perspective on perspective.
Very fun app for creating fractals pictures on iPhone.
Exciting, beautiful, meditative
I am a color junkie. I am a math junkie. I am a pattern junkie. This app is perfection for me. The graphics are wonderful and the pattern flows are beautifully done. I could. and often do, veg out on this when I'm problem-solving. Seems to trigger all the right neurons.
Fractals totally worth it for schools
Awesome app, and an excellent way for secondary teachers to inspire and motivate students to explore and understand post-calculus topics!!!
Great starter for understanding Fractals
I really appreciate this work. Certainly worth the price tag. Hope it grows with more possibilities and options.
by Excellent !
With so many color possibilities and very fast I have saved hundreds of beautiful pics.
I've almost been waiting my whole I-pad experience to find a fractal app!

Render times are shorter than any other one I've used, does not go to infinity but you can spend 10 minutes trying to get there. Depth and technical options are much great. Buy this app!
I absolutely LOVE fractals! It's amazing that math equations do all of this! Thank you so much for making it a free app!
This is an amazing App. It uses the iPad's multi-touch interface very intuitively. It's the best of the Fractal Apps I've found. I could spend hours playing and creating. The ability to save and quickly share makes it very fun.

This app is absolutely amazing. It has intuative controls and runs smoothly. Worth 3 dollars and is the best fractal app out there.
Update is perfect!
Thank you for working out so many kinks! Zoom is so much better and detail is improved! I love fractals and the improvements made this the perfect fractal app!
"The Thumbprint Of God"
by Earl C Grey
That was the term Arthur C Clark used when referring to The 'M' Set, insomuch that one can see all kinds of various natural forms in this simple equation. Perhaps it's the formula used by nature herself when creating coral reefs, seahorses, elephants, ferns, and the plethora of familiar organic shapes revealed in a Mandelbrot zoom. This app is fantastic! The colors: Vibrant. The zooms go into infinity. None of the 'crashes' one experiences in some of the lesser fractal generators out there. I LOVE it! My favorite iPad app so-far.
What are fractals?
Fractals are a geometric patterns that repeat themselves at smaller scales to produce self-similar irregular shapes and that cannot be represented by classical Euclidian geometry.
The mathematics behind fractals had been explored as early as the 17th century, but they could not be visualized until the advent of computer technology due to the calculation intensive nature of plotting fractals.
The word fractal was originally coined by the Benoit B. Mandelbrot in 1975 and is derived from the Latin word fractus meaning broken or fractured. Mandelbrot was the first to plot fractals using computers while he was working at IBM. His work with fractals was based on the earlier work of many other mathematicians including Gaston Julia.
There are also many objects in nature that have the self-similar properties of fractals such as snow flakes, crystals, lightning, river networks, systems of blood vessels and even mountain ranges.
