Introducing Frax, a compelling new iOS fractal app

iOS devices can do a lot of productive and entertaining things. But they can also present and manipulate data in beautiful ways. Such is the case with Frax, a new fractal generating application developed by Ben Weiss, Kai Krause, and Tom Beddard. In this episode of the podcast I speak with Ben and Tom about the motivation and development of this compelling new app for the iPhone and the iPad.

If the term “fractal” is new to you and you feel the need to bone up on the subject, Tom has written a helpful article aptly titled “What are Fractals?” And if you’re simply interested in seeing the kind of gorgeous patterns math can make, visit the Frax showcase.

And for good measure, the Frax developers have given TechHive and Macworld readers exclusive high-resolution fractal files for their viewing and creative pleasure.
