Cool App! - Fractals are pretty interesting to explore, and the customizability this app offers allows is pretty cool!

Fun to play with, but crashes. A lot. - Crashes on every third attempt to save a design to disk. This is infuriating when you’ve spent the last few minutes tweaking the design and colors, especially since color presets can’t be saved and the app reopens only with the default design displayed. Updating this review to remove a star. When I said it crashes on every third attaempt to save an image, I wasn’t kidding. EVERY THIRD TIME. So now I just goof around for a minute or two after saving the first two, then I either quit or wait for the crash.

Not so much... - I'm a graphic designer and I love playing with fractals and this programs interface wasn't as user friendly as I could have hoped for and you are limited to only Mandelbrot or Julia for generating images I like to have more control and a more user friendly interface that lets me randomize or customize the fractal i'm working on.
