About this app

Like fractals? Want to know more about them? The Wolfram Fractals Reference App is a handy reference you can take with you wherever you go. It's great whether you're covering fractals in your math course or just want to explore the beautiful shapes and structures of fractals and the math behind them.

- Choose from both common fractals and more unusual types
- Visualize the Sierpiński gasket, the Koch snowflake, and the Mandelbrot set, as well as over 40 other fractals
- Input parameters to customize your fractal type
- Learn the rules behind the fractal construction
- Explore hundreds of possibilities, including line and shape replacement fractals, space-filling curves, Blancmange function, Mandelbrot and Julia sets, and 3D fractals

The Wolfram Fractals Reference App is powered by the Wolfram|Alpha computational knowledge engine and is created by Wolfram Research, makers of Mathematica—the world's leading software system for mathematical research and education.

The Wolfram Fractals Reference App draws on the computational power of Wolfram|Alpha's supercomputers over a 2G, 3G, 4G, or Wi-Fi connection.

It's a handy app for everyone who would like to visualise the interesting world of fractals, but it doesn't utilise any of the nowdays quite capable computational power of phone's processor. As with all Wolfram's services, it requires constant internet connection. Would be the best if it worked offline as this is not a task phones today couldn't handle.

This app provides a good range of different fractal types. It explains things well for iterated shape replacement like Koch curve. As for zooming in on details, as claimed in the subtitle, most fractal types can't zoom. I only spotted zoom/pan buttons on the Mandelbrot set. Very cumbersome. See Mandelbrot Maps app for something much more interactive. Also, this app draws tick marks on the axes with crazy spacing like 0.48? I thought Wolfram of all companies knew how to choose good tick spacing like 0.5!

I can already do 80% of this in WolframAlpha. Why are the input iterations locked? I bought expecting to create cool imgs. Letdown.
