Fractoid 1.0 Released

Just published my first app to the Android Market. Its a fractal generator called Fractoid. Supports Mandelbrot and Julia Set fractals. This was really an exercise to learn the ins and outs of Android development, but I do have a bunch of ideas for improvements and additional features. Let me know what you think.
