Thank you for your review
Fractacular has been discontinued
Email me when discounted: 
Fractacular has 200 beautifully rendered fractal images using the awesome SAM (Stripe Average Method) coloring scheme. The vast majority of them are from deep inside a one pixel square location at the seventeenth node of the northwest side of Seahorse Valley.

After creating the software and gradients to achieve this distinctive style of shallow-depth-3D fractals, the final 200 fractal images were culled from thousands of fractal images that I created over many months. This app is the culmination of about nine man-months worth of time.

Fractacular has a dynamically animated, futuristic GUI that's completely more...

I'm not sure why this is considered a screensaver, since it runs as an app.

It can't be started by my screensaver engine and if it's running and a screensaver starts, the screensaver takes precedence.

Haven't used it long enough to determine stability, but it's currently running on OS X 10.7.2 64-bit Intel.

Looks like something has changed in the past few weeks.

The Download link on this page now leads to a free download from the App Store. I guess if you can't sell something, you give it away.

Yep, looks like I posted the wrong app's link in my first post. I sure wish this site would allow editing of posts!

What BS!
The price depends on which download link you follow:

The MacUpdate link above leads to a 99¢ download in the App Store http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/fractacular/id433121558?mt=12

From the developer's website, the download price is $2.99, also from the App Store http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/fractalmaker/id413928313?mt=12&ls=1

IT'S STILL NOT FREE, and I'm still not paying for it! :-(



That first download link you posting is showing me a free listing. The second one your provided is for a different-but-similar app from the same developer.
