About this app

MandelBrowser is a simple, intuitive, and powerful fractal image generator. The app allows you to easily navigate fractals with gestures (pinch-to-zoom, pan, rotate) and offers many ways to customize images: from changing color schemes to defining custom fractal formulas. That gives you almost limitless possibilities to create amazing pictures.

* 70+ fractal types including the most famous Mandelbrot Set,
* 60+ paint modes (patterns),
* 80+ color palettes,
* 28 image filters, including a kaleidoscope effect,
* 3D light effects using Blinn-Phong reflection model,
* high resolution rendering up to 8k UHD (6k on Android lower than 10),
* optional supersampling,
* real-time zoom video,
* video creator (requires Android 6+),
* image randomizer,
* user-defined content (fractal types, paint modes, and color palettes),
* saving and sharing images, your favorite spots, and custom content,
* built-in gallery with 700+ examples.

EPILEPSY WARNING: this app may produce flashing images.

The app starts in the simple mode with some features hidden. You may switch to the advanced mode in the Settings.

The only free fractal app (that I've found) that lets you play with 3D effects via lighting and surface depth. I particularly love the Rings paint mode because changing the radius can give you tons of variability. I plan on buying the full version soon, because there's a TON more there, but there's so much you can do with the free version that you might not even need it! You can create your own palettes in the free version, and one custom formula. Water reflection filter is also available.

Very cool app. First learned about fractals (and chaos theory) 30 years ago in college. Back then, we had an old, old, OLD Mac SE/30 to generate them. They were obviously nothing close to what is possible with today's computers. All the more impressive is a phone being able to generate and zoom in (more than 1 trillion times!) on these images. I've looked for an Android app for years that does what this one does.

This app is phenomenal. It's everything I could have hoped to find in a fractal generator, and the performance is quite impressive considering that it runs on a mobile device. I would appreciate support for logical loops in the advanced fractal generation, though. As it is, I had to resort to repeating the same sequence of lines 200 times in order to approximate an infinite series.

Thank you very much for such positive feedback. I'm really curious what you wanted to achieve and why it can't be done using a custom escape condition. Please contact me by email tomasz.smigielski256@gmail.com or by Instagram DM @mandelbrowser.
