One of the ultimate time-wasting applications, Fractality is a toy and/or tool for creating polygonal fractals. Like geometric fractals, polygonal fractals are repetitive patterns following certain mathematical algorithms. Yet polygonal fractals are simpler, usually more symmetric, and often much more beautiful. They follow repeating patterns of simple algorithmic commands, and are essentially geometric shapes repeating on themselves over and over again.

Fractality is an original tool made to create and manipulate almost every aspect of these fractals. In Fractality, you have easy control over basic controls, like the number of more...

Promising app, but still a beta release.

The good:
The fractals are really pretty. The interface is well designed. The many adjustible parameters mean that there are near unlimited possibilities.

The bad:
Export options are limited - no hi-res stills, no movie export. Also needs to be more of a resource hog - at first I thought my computer was too slow, but Activity Monitor showed only 15% processor usage and over 500MB RAM free.

Fractality 1.0 will be great.

Thanks for the comments! Currently you can export as big as you can make the window... so just save your .frac file to the web and go to your local Apple Store to play on a 30" display and then save it back to the web ;)

Movie export probably won't be in 1.0 unless I get some wonderful inspiration... it just seems more than I can deal with at the time.

I'm definitely working on optimization.

This app makes astoundingly beautiful images. You have to see it to believe it.
As well as doing its main function very well, it allows for lots of customisation of the fractal and is very stable and fast.
The export to larger sizes will make this even better, and i wouldnt mind seeing some sort of random colour generation for each polygon.
Overall, a very good little app :)
