Frax is an art program that puts the “equations of nature” in the palm of your hand. Frax is powered by fractal geometry, the same principle that creates patterns of self-similarity in our natural world. From spiral galaxies to hurricanes, from tree limbs to branching blood vessels, the universe is filled with endless variation and staggering beauty. Frax visualizes this natural geometric code, so you can explore vast animating digital landscapes and make a masterpiece on your touchscreen.
Zoom deep into your creations. Use multi-touch gestures to fly through and explore intricate shapes and patterns. Tilt-to-steer through animating digital worlds, as you challenge yourself to chart a course for a long and beautiful flight –all at a depth range of a trillion-to-one.
Unleash your inner artist with complex color gradients to smoothly tint and shade your fractal shapes, two light sources for glossy reflections, and novel textures. The combinations are endless: supersmooth or wildly chaotic, metallic sheen or pearly white, subtle shades, stark monochrome or screaming supergloss. Or upgrade to Pro to access almost 100 parameters and controls!
Then share your creations with your friends via Facebook, Twitter and text. Or invite other users to step into your animating world by sharing a live preset link. You can render high-quality images to your photo library or create ultra-high quality 200 Megapixel renders with an IAP. And for the first time, you can now record VIDEO of your Frax animations directly within the app! (Pro IAP required.) Our users have put their designs on canvas, posters, scarves, T-shirts and textiles. The creative possibilities are endless!
What will Frax inspire in you?
We hope you enjoy Frax!

It makes my head hurt
This is a story all about how
My life got twist-turned upside down
And I liked to take a minute and sit right there
And tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel Air
In west Philadelphia born and raised
On the playground was where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out, maxin', relaxin' all cool
And all shootin' some b-ball outside of the school
When a couple of guys who were upto no good
Startin' makin' trouble in my neighborhood
I got in one lil' fight and my mom got scared
She said you're movin' with your auntie and uncle in Bel Air
I whistled for a cab and when it came near
The license plate said fresh and it had dice in the mirror
If anything I can say this cab is rare
But I thought now forget it yo homes to Bel Air
I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8
And I yelled to the cabyo homes, smell ya later
I looked at my kingdom, I was finally there
To sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel Air
Not just a toy
I started out enjoying exploring the different fractals. Then recently I needed a better background for PowerPoint. This was a great tool to create a background with depth and character but boring enough to be in the background. I focused on what normally would be a boring part of the fractal. I know this is somewhat an unintended use for this but I was able to use this as a tool rather than just zooming through cool scenery.
I just love it!!
I’ve been trying to teach myself fractals with a PC program for years and have never been able to figure out how to get the beautiful images I often see. I am so, so, so thrilled with Frax. It makes exploring and seeing results very very easy (imo) and it is just so beautiful to look at!!! You have one very VERY happy customer for life!
