Realtime Mandelbrot

for iPad®, iPhone® 4S, 4, 3GS, iPod touch® 3rd & 4th Generation


Realtime Mandelbrot is an app that lets you find/create wondrous and gorgeous images–see the gallery–in seconds on your iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS or recent iPod touch.

  Realtime Mandelbrot HD is functionally the same app but produces higher resolution HD images, and is especially made for the iPad.

Both apps allow you to pinch to zoom and drag to pan, and interactively explore the most famous of fractals, the “Mandelbrot set.” You can color your images using an artistic coloring scheme that automatically finds pleasing hues and control geometry with iteration count and exponent sliders. All controls function in real-time, or close to real-time.

These are the only iOS apps that compute the Mandelbrot set on the powerful graphics processing unit (GPU) of your device. Being up to 20 faster than the CPU, this gives you better looking visuals faster, and allows you to explore the set more easily.

Check out this Appsite for screenshots, specs, and info on the usage of the app.

In the future, Realtime Mandelbrot will be linked to ND1 to permit user formulas.
