This PocketPC application can calculate pictures of 8 different Mandelbrot/Julia type complex fractals on your PDA. Easily zoom into selected areas of the fractal. Author: Patrick Meuwissen (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Support for 8 complex fractal types (known from the great PC program called Fractint):
Support for three types of arithmetic precision:
Fixed point 32 bit: fully optimized StrongARM assembly code; very fast, limited zooming
Fixed point 64 bit: optimized C-code accelerated by StrongARM assembly code; zooming capabilities similar to floating point but significantly faster
Floating point: optimized C-code; deep zooming, slow calculations
Context-sensitive help, accessible through the Start Menu.
Save your favorite pictures for future recalculation, in a very compact file format called MBF. (Several sample MBF files included.)
Palettes (up to 256 colors) can be loaded from file. Palette files (MPF file format) come in two flavors:
Binary format (native); allows for compact file size
ASCII text format (user defined); allows users to easily create their own custom palette files. A palette save option allows these user defined palettes to be saved into the native binary format
Color cycling and 3D relief drawing effects.
Slideshow option (view your file history as a slideshow).
Power saving: automatically turns of the screen during calculations if the battery power is low.
Many new options.
It's still freeware! :-)
