iOS 7 support

App Description

Go beyond the traditional Mandelbrot set with this app's "fractional exponent" slider.

GPU-powered, this Mandelbrot zoomer is fast. Navigate the Mandelbrot set as if it were a giant photo: pinch to zoom, drag to pan. Use two coloring sliders to interpolate between color schemes and fine-tune them to get pleasing hues.

Control shapes and detail with iteration count and fractional exponent sliders. Latter yields images you've not seen before!

4x oversampling in SHQ mode gives clear, anti-aliased renderings.

There's one limitation: because all calculations happen on the GPU, the zoom factor is limited to something like 1:16,000. The benefits are close to interactive performance in HQ mode, anti-aliasing for final renders, and fractional exponent rendering which involves a calculation almost 10x more complex than the standard Mandelbrot formula.
