Flamelet is a very creative app for generating fractal art in a playful way. It does this by implementing the fractal-flame-algorithm, originally invented by Scott Draves, in a very versatile and efficient way.
There is literally an endless number of possibilities, and you never will have seen all.

Flamelet was designed from ground up for mobile devices, is easy to learn, but hard to master. This makes it an app, which has the potential to never become boring.

Flamelet gives you the freedom, either to create your own art from scratch, or to generate random flames and modify them.

There are numerous flame-generators included, all of them with the potential to generate endless beauty.

Speaking about art, the app can render your creations in a very decent quality, directly on the device, without any additional costs.

Unlike to those fractal-zooming/scrolling-apps, Flamelet allows you to actually create fractal art. Either from scratch or by just modifying already created art with your fingertips.
Both, a playful and an exact approach are supported: you may just drag around controls or enter exact numerical values.
Of course, many combinations of formulas are already well-known, but you can try out your own ideas or just play around to find out new combinations.

Flamelet offers a lot of features to play around with:
•\tcreate limitless combinations of functions, final transforms, transform groups, point transforms and color transforms
•\tmake use of about 90 included transforms
•\tinfluence the tone mapping (balancing, contrast, …)
•\tedit the background (use single color, gradients or images)
•\tapply symmetry (point or axis symmetry with several options)
•\tadjust colors (either by adjusting or creating gradients or by using images)

While creating something from scratch can be very rewarding, just playing around with beautiful shapes can be much fun, and even be relaxing or healing.

For this kind of use, Flamelet offers a large library of flame-generators, which create an endless number of random beauty.
Additionally, there is the mutagen-module, which allows you to generate random variants ("mutations ") of a selected base flame in a very playful way.

You can easily share your flame parameters and rendered images with others from within the app.

Everything is included when you purchase and install Flamelet. There are about 50 example flames, 12 images and 9 tutorials to get you started. The only other thing you need is your creativity (and your device to render your images).
There are no ads, no artificial limits, no subscriptions, no loot-boxes, you have not to be online, …, and we do not collect any of your data! It’s just you – and your art.

Have fun ! :-)
