For iPhone.  I love all the fractal stuff you provide.  I am a big fan of Kenny Werner's Effortless Mastery.  Your fractal random pieces facilitate the extreme in free play play-along.  It is how we fly without wings or play with no purpose and without thinking.  This is essential in achieving true freedom and confidence on your instrument.

Frozen Ape makes a fairly good visual metronome for the iPhone.  You offer far more that you could bring to the platform. 

I like being able to program tempo changes over periods of time.  As I use it more I will post other ideas.

Thanks for your feedback!

Still don't know for sure how I'll approach it though definitely plan to give it a go when I have the chance. But one idea is to do it as html5, as that matures. Which should work on iPhone hopefully.

Not given any thought to fractals on mobile devices, that's a whole new ball game. But I suppose once I have a metronome app, if that all gets sorted out could start to think further afield. Glad to hear that the fractal pieces help facilitate free play play-along!

Being a drummer first, I can't tell you how much these programs rock for free play.
eleven limit pentatonic tubular bells - yeah!
harmonic fractional polyrhythms golden ratio - oh yeah!

I don't know that I really need my iPhone to do all this FTS on demand.  I can record it and reuse it pretty easily if I need to but the metronome sure.
