Hello i am big fan to Nokia and i got 2 devices but unfortunately there`s no fractal software for them. I do not understand math, so could anyone write that kind of software?

I've got a symbian mobile too. But symbian is dead. Except some exotic devices, there are no symbian phones available anymore. I guess noone will develop for a dead system.

Right, and it was a pain when it was not dead, so I'm somewhat comfortable with it ;-)

Symbian is dead - and I don't think any 3rd party developers are in the least bit bothered - they're development software was as buggy as Windows Mobile, as hard to use as Android and with more restrictions than Apple's iOS.
However if you try poking around Symbian/Nokia related forums you may find some hobbyists who first started programming via the Symbian OS - they're the most likely to be interested in developing something in the same way that some are still developing new Z80 and C64 software wink

The meaning and purpose of life is to give life purpose and meaning.

Unfortunately for me too, my wife and I both have Symbian S^3 devices.  I have an N8 which I got for the 12MP camera mainly, and she has a N500 which is an entry level phone.

I found the amount of software available sadly lacking, and unfortunately, Nokia have moved on to Windows Phone.

In some ways, if a Symbian foundation were created (did it ever go away or just get sucked up by Nokia) and could persuade Nokia to relinquish the old Symbian source back to them, some fantastic new operating systems could be created.

Still, I have found a limited generator of the mandelbrot set.  It has no zoom out, renders very slowly, has limited colour capacity and is pretty awkward to use, but for something to simply tinker with once in a while, it fills a small hole.  Think it is simply called fractal.  Should be available for free from the Ovi Store.

Hope that helps.

To anyone viewing my posts and finding missing/broken links to a website called www.needanother.co.uk, I still own the domain but recently cancelled my server (saving ú30/month) so even though the domain address exists, it points nowhere.  I hope to one day sort something out but for now - sorry!
