    Mandelbrot Map 2 is a simple Mandelbrot fractal viewer for Android that acts as an "infinite map". Simply use it like Google Maps, with panning and zooming. It also offers options to save images and set as wallpaper.

    Note: this was designed to be just a simple demo app. There are other more fanciful or faster fractal renderers on Market.

    Update: Fly Mode (in menu>more).
    - v12 now uses RenderScript on Honeycomb, if available. This is experimental and may crash.
    - v13 supports Honeycomb tablet UI. Switch to double for deeper zoom.
