The sensor control will also enable you to identify a star in just a few seconds, just by pointing the phone at the sky!
This award-winning astronomy application is finally available on Android featuring:
* a catalog of over 600,000 stars displayed as a real time zoomable sky map
* a catalog of many nebulae and galaxies, with pictures for some of them
* asterisms and illustrations of the constellations for several sky cultures
* artificial satellites, including the International Space Station
* realistic Milky Way
* realistic landscape and atmosphere with sunrise, sunset and light pollution simulation
* accurate simulation of stars extinction, and atmosphere refraction
* 3D rendering of the major solar system planets and their satellites
* night mode (red)
* GPS positioning, accelerometers control of the direction of view in the sky
Stellarium mobile Sky Map is created by two of the original developers of Stellarium, the Desktop version of this famous astronomy and planetarium stars chart app.
We designed this application to have a simple UI and to save the entire screen for the image:
one finger move
pinch to zoom
two finger rotate
To bring you the infinite on your mobile device, we have set the application to render the image in stages. We are confident it is the fastest, most responsive Mandelbrot viewer available on any mobile device (and might we add *prettiest*). We welcome you to enjoy it firsthand.
Save the image with your device’s screen capture and you can share it with your friends or use it as an interesting wallpaper!
The more black space there is in the image, the longer it may take to load each stage of the image. Black space represents an area that has not escaped the Mandelbrot set...and it takes a few extra seconds for a processor to calculate. So to speed up the image stages, move to areas with more color.
The application currently has a maximum magnification of 2 X 10^13. If you magnified normal life that many times you could see deep into the nucleus of an atom with your eyes!!!
Zooms can be individually set to higher iteration limit using the menu. An iteration limit of 500 is okay for initial exploration of the Mandelbrot Set. For some zooms a higher limit will be needed; for example the smaller 'copies' of the Mandelbrot Set may be blobby unless the iteration limit is increased.
Use the options menu to try different colour schemes - your zoom will change to the new scheme without resetting the zooming process.
The Mandelbrot Set is a fractal generated by a simple rule. The patterns which result are extraordinarily detailed, with fascinating symmetries and recurring shapes.
This app allows the user to zoom in on any region repeatedly. The default settings allow fairly fast processing even on a low-end phone. Users with devices with faster processors can change the settings, resulting in sharper images. The menu button also provides an option for increasing the iteration limit of an existing zoom, so that even on slower devices a user can quickly zoom in to a desired area, and the view that area in more detail.
Colour schemes can be changed at any stage, without affecting the current zoom or iteration depth. This allows exploration of detail, and makes it easier for the user to find zooms which show aspects of the Mandelbrot set more clearly.
Images can be saved to the device's storage, or shared using email, text messaging or other sharing applications.
Hundreds of millions of calculations may be necessary for a sharp image of parts of the Mandelbrot Set, and some zooms may slow your device.
use preference to adjust the color and parameter then go back to preview screen to check the settings. If you want initial image, tick the initialize item, then go to preview screen to check the image return to initial size. Remember to untick the initialize item, the settings will be restored when you open the wallpaper next time.
This fractal viewer uses Renderscript, so that both the CPUs and GPUs in your devices are used, to make it one of the fastest fractal viewers available on the Play store.
Move around the fractals by dragging with one finger and pinch with two to zoom in and out. Hold your finger down to drop a pin and explore the Julia set.
If you find a particularly beautiful spot, you can save the image or share it with friends.
Fractal Maps is open-source software - you can find the source on my GitHub account, which is linked on this page as the developer website. The source code is also available at https://github.com/voxelcarrot/FractalMaps
This work builds on that of the following people:
* Alasdair Corbett, who created the Android port of Mandelbrot Maps: https://github.com/withad/Mandelbrot-Maps-on-Android
* Edward Mallia: http://edwardmallia.com/mandelbrotmaps/
* Taige Liu
* Iain Parris, who created the original Mandelbrot Maps: http://homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk/wadler/mandelbrot-maps/mmaps.html, http://www.inf.ed.ac.uk/publications/thesis/online/IM080583.pdf
Hopefully I will find the time to extend it a bit more...

The map itself is quite large (6480,3888), so it's way too big to fit in memory all at once (6480 x 3888 x 32 / 8) = 100,776,960 -- over 96 megs. The VM heap size Android supports is eith 16 or 24 megs, so we can't fit the whole thing in memory at once.
So WorldMap uses the BitmapRegionDecoder API (available as of API 10) to decode just what it needs to display.
WorldMap is open source, and the source code is here: https://github.com/johnnylambada/WorldMap
This version of worldmap come with a brief information about every country like: Country capital city, dial code, country code, country continent, country currency code, the country area in sq km, country languages, numbers of the population and the GPS geo points east, west, north, south, geo name id, flag iso Alpha3 .
